The Nat Sherman brand was dissolved over the last couple of years and the blends were purchased by former executives of Nat Sherman, Michael Herklots and Brendon Scott who rebranded the blends under the new name of Ferio Tego. Hand-rolled in Davidoff’s Honduran factory, Diadema Cigars de Honduras S.A., the Metropolitan Host Maduro is the same blend as it was before with a well-aged Connecticut Broadleaf maduro wrapper leaf, Honduran binder, and Honduran long-fillers. Mild in body but full in flavor, this excellent smoke produces creamy notes with lingering sweetness. Perfect for any time of day, we preferred it for afternoon cocktail hour with a Bulleit Bourbon.
Honduras has been a tobacco growing and cigar manufacturing area for hundreds of years, but it was the Communist revolution in Cuba that really put Honduras on the map. In the 1960s, many Cuban cigar makers fled their homeland and arrived in Honduras to re-establish their way of life. The immigrants took advantage of the climate, soil, and geography, which were well-suited to tobacco growing, and began producing high quality cigars. The center of the Honduran cigar industry is the city of Danli and the nearby Jamastran Valley. The majority of the world’s pure Corojo tobacco is grown here, now that Cuba has stopped production of this iconic, spicy, and rich variety in favor of Corojo hybrids. Other important areas of Honduran cigar production include the Talanga Valley, Copan, and Trojes.
