Nomad Cigar Co. Releases much-anticipated C-276
Estelí, Nicaragua (July 18, 2014) – Nomad Cigar Company is pleased to announce the release of the Nomad C-276 at this year’s IPCPR in Las Vegas.
The C-276 is a full flavored complex blend featuring five different filler tobaccos (with two Ligeros).
It also marks the second full production cigar that Nomad has done in Estelí at Tobacalera AJ Fernandez.
The C-276 rounds out Nomad’s portfolio of offerings and joins its place on the shelf with the Dominican Classic, Nicaraguan S-307, and the released-early-in-2014 Dominican Connecticut Fuerte.
The C-276 also marks Fred Rewey’s first venture into using Ometepe tobacco in a blend.
“When I was blending the C-276 I approached it in layers. I kept trying to add layers and layers of flavor but didn’t want to overpower any one tobacco in the process. At one point I was struggling to add a final component that I couldn’t quite nail down. It was suggested to me that I visit Ometepe and check out that tobacco – it was the best addition to this blend I could make – it just came together,” said Rewey.
As with the other Nicaraguan lines, Rewey creates the name of the cigar using a variety of Nicaraguan factoids.
“The “C” is for Concepción, one of two volcanoes on Ometepe Island. “276″ is the square kilometers of the island. It seemed a fitting tribute to an incredible island growing amazing tobacco.” said Rewey.
