Nomad Cigar Company is a brand that came on the market a few years back and is owned by brand owner Fred Rewey.  If you have ever met Fred, or follow him on Facebook or Twitter, you know he is probably one of the funniest guys in the cigar industry.   However, his latest release the Nomad Connecticut Fuerte, is no laughing matter.

The new Nomad Connecticut Fuerte is Nomad Cigar Company’s entry into the Connecticut cigar market.  The new Nomad Connecticut Fuerte is available in four sizes; corona, toro, robusto, and robusto gordo.  All of which come in 20 count boxes.

Let’s talk looks.  The Nomad Connecticut Fuerte features a light colored Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper.  The wrapper leaf is light with minimal veining.  The Nomad Connecticut Fuerte shares a similar band to that of the Nomad Classis cigar line, which reads “Nomad” and has a red and black color scheme.

Flavor wise, this is quite possibly the best Connecticut cigar on the market right now.  Yes, that is a bold statement, and yes it is my opinion, but this is a fantastic stick.  The flavors I picked up while smoking this stick were that of wood, spice, a strong nuttiness, and some pleasant leathery notes.  This cigar also had a very nice creaminess that was present throughout the entire smoke.  The grand finale, aka the last quarter of this cigar will knock your socks off.  The spice of this cigar explodes and is very pleasing to your palate.

Burn wise, every one of the cigars that I have smoked, ten in total, has burned excellently.

Do I recommend you try it for yourself?  You bet.  As mentioned above, I have smoked ten of these, in the last two weeks.  Why?  It is that damn good.  Go out and find them, buy a box, and smoke them.  Then repeat.
