Nat Sherman offers enough variety in its impressive roster of blends and sizes to keep one trying new cigars for months on end! Hobart is a part of their “Host” series that has a rustic aroma as well as solid, mild-to-medium strength flavor. It is a super-smooth handmade cigar, rolled with a Connecticut shade wrapper and Dominican and Honduran long leaves as binder and filler. Nat Sherman cigars have a rich history (not to mention their rich flavor), and the quality of this brand has always been superb. The company was founded in New York at the height of the Great Depression. Seemingly a strange time to jump in to the high-end cigar market, Nat Sherman saw an opportunity; his premium cigars would be enjoyed by people of status, and were seen along with them in the public eye—fashion executives, show business superstars and of course, the omnipresent gangsters of the day. While others were feeling the effects of the Great Depression, entrepreneur Nat Sherman was doing quite well. Now, more than 70 years later, his still family-run business, now in its third generation, continues to produce some of the best cigars on the market. The Hobart we’ve selected for you is literally sweet on the lips, with a clover-esque note, and a balancing influence coming from the Honduran tobacco spiciness. This cigar has a great full draw that provides large billows of flavorful smoke, and an ash that is firm in its grip. Overall, this is a relatively mild cigar that would be perfect with a cup of coffee in the morning.
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.
