In the Cigar Mojo Humidor with Fred Rewey of Nomad Cigars and a Contest Winner!

imageSunday we spent the afternoon at Cigar Mojo In King of Prussia, PA with Fred Rewey of Nomad Cigar Co. and Alex Mayer, our local House of Emilio rep hanging out, shooting the bull and smoking cigars. I was lucky enough to smoke Fred’s newest offering, the Nomad Lot 8613 in a robusto size, thanks to Alex. I would have bought some of these, but they weren’t in the shop yet, so I bought some S-307s, one of which I enjoyed this evening.  The Lot 8613, as Fred explains in the video below, is the sustainable version of his limited edition Lot 1386 (I have one of those in one of the humidors someplace), and was a very good smoke. It was just right for the early afternoon, after breakfast, but before lunch time that we were there. It’s always fun visiting with Fred, he told us about the “Hacking the Blend” seminars he’s doing breaking imagedown a cigar with puros of each component.  While I haven’t caught Fred’s rendition of this sort of event, I have done it before and it’s a great way to appreciate how a cigar is put together by tasting each individual leaf that goes into a blend. It’s no easy task finding tobaccos that work well together, that’s for sure. Anyway, check out the Nomad line when you get a chance, there’s something in the line for everyone.

 

Here’s my latest installment of “In the Cigar Mojo Humidor” for your entertainment.

    I met Fred last year in Seattle, and he was a pleasure to get to know. (I also reviewed a couple of his cigars) The new 8613 is the only one I haven’t gotten around to trying, so I’m looking forward to getting my hands on one. They are all great, but the C-276 is a terrific smoke.

    Congrats to the contest winner!

    Fred is such a great guy! I wish we had his stuff here in Portland Or…I have to put an order in for the 8613, I have only heard great things about that blend! Congrats to Lonnie and thanks again Craig for the contest (even though I never win up its fun seeing who does lol).

    That Lot 8613 is a great smoke. I just had it, as well.

    First off the 8613 is a brilliant cigar. The otempe tobacco adds such complex flavors it’s amazing. Fred Rewey has the Midas touch for creating terrific blends. And he’s responsive to his fan base. What more can you ask for. Well done Craig.
