I remember smoking my first timeless blend awhile back. What I remember most is thinking “Nat Sherman makes premiums?!” The band and presentation was striking, and the cigar smoked well. Since then, A sequence of business deals occurred in which Nat Sherman was to get out of the premium game. In those deals- Michael Herklots and Brandon Scott, partners in Nat Sherman’s premium division, salvaged the Timeless Line. The Timeless line is now produced under the Ferio Tego Brand. Such a cool story, showing the leap of faith the two took to preserve the brand.
The Timeless Limited 10 Years is only offered in one size- a Robusto Grande, standing at 5 & 3/4 inches x 54 RG. The Limited Edition smoke is rolled at Quesada Cigars in the Dominican Republic. The cigar’s presentation is visually appealing, donning 3 bands over a beautiful Dominican wrapper which has a nice sheen. The bunch is made up by Nicaraguan and Dominican filler, and bound with a Dominican binder leaf. The cigar is medium in body, perhaps medium full towards the last third. Draw and construction are sound. The first thing that crossed my mind upon first light was how smooth the cigar was. The flavor profile is well balanced with notes of coffee, nuts, floral notes, and touches of spice. Man, is this thing smooth.
The Timeless 10 Years is offered in 10 count boxes, with only 2,500 boxes being produced. For a single, one can expect to pay 18-19 dollars per cigar. At that price point, expectations for a cigar are high. In my personal opinion, I believe that this cigar meets those expectations. I would recommend this cigar to someone who wants to splurge a bit, or to someone who is newer to cigars due to the approachable smoothness of the profile while maintaining that medium flavor profile.
