Nat Sherman Timeless

Friday, June 29th, 2012

This is a first impression review. As you probably know, I try to smoke at least two or three cigars before reviewing. Lack of availability made that impossible this time. This isn’t a big deal, but worth noting…

Matt, from, was generous enough to send me some cigars, which included the Nat Sherman Timeless. I have never had any Nat Sherman cigars, so I looked forward to giving it a try. As always, I paired with water.


Wrapper: Honduran

Binder: Dominican

Filler: Dominican and Nicaraguan

Size: 6.25 x 52

Price: Around $8.50


Pre-Smoke & Construction:

The oily wrapper was shiny, with brown and light brown color variations. Overall it looked good, just a bit rugged. The smell of the wrapper was earthy, and the foot was cedar. The cigar was solidly packed, and I could find no soft spots. The draw had slight resistance, which is how I prefer it. The pre-light draw was sweet, cedary, and mild.

The ash held for about an inch and a half, and the burn required several small corrections.

The first third started out with a smooth earthy flavor. After about a half of an inch, an easy pepper, along with coffee, joined in. The coffee didn’t have a lot of bitterness that you would associate with black coffee. The pepper wasn’t of the traditional black variety, and it packed just a little zing. As I got towards the end of this third, the smoke feel became thicker, sweet, and somewhat creamy. This mixed with the coffee nicely. I can only equate it to adding a little cream and sugar to coffee.

The second third kept the same basic flavors. The body increased slightly, and the smoke feel became a bit more creamy. The pepper developed a little more zing, but remained easy to smoke. Otherwise, it was coffee, mixed with a bit of sugar and cream.

The last third went back to the basics, but in a good way. There was an uptick on the zingy pepper. The creaminess took a back seat, as did the sweetness. It was basically an easy, not too bitter black coffee with pepper.

This was a solid medium bodied cigar. There was certainly no wow factor, but the flavors were simple, refined and smooth. Construction was good as well. If I run across them again, I’ll give the Timeless another try.

January 2011 Cigar Site of the Month–

Monday, January 31st, 2011

Rarely do I choose a new site as the Cigar Site of the Month. But there are always exceptions…

I’ve done a few reviews with Matt here and on The Stogie Review. I’ve told him for a couple of years that he should start a cigar review site. His take was that cigar blogs are a dime a dozen, and the world doesn’t need another one. I agree with him, I am one of those dozen.


Recently he launched It is a cigar site, but it offers something a little different. Matt dabbles in photography, and that is the focus of the site. He will be updating it once a week, on Wednesdays. Sure, it’s nothing groundbreaking, but it’s nice to see something new and a little different in the cigar site world. So go check out and keep an eye on it!
