DESCRIPTION: The Nat Sherman Timeless Collection was inspired by feedback from retailers and consumers at the 2011 trade show. Michael Herklots of Nat Sherman took the advice and reworked the blend until he had incorporated all the desired aspects of the feedback he received. He collaborated with the Quesada family who produced the cigars in their MATASA factory in the Dominican Republic.
The Timeless Collection comes in Dominican Sapele wood slide-top cabinet boxes of 20 and features a blend of aged Dominican and Nicaraguan filler tobaccos, a Dominican binder and a Honduran wrapper. The Timeless Collection comes in 4 sizes with prices ranging from $6.25-$8.50 per stick.
FEATURED LIBATION: The Balvenie Double-Wood 12-Year Aged Scotch
The Balvenie DoubleWood is a 12 year old single malt which gains its distinctive character from being matured in two woods. Over its period of maturation it is transferred from a traditional oak whisky cask to a first fill European oak sherry cask.
SPECIAL GUEST: Michael Herklots, Executive Director at Nat Sherman
