Nomad Cigar Co. C-276

Nomad C-276

Wrapper: Ecuadorian Habano Oscuro

Binder: Nicaraguan

Filler: Nicaraguan

Size: Toro 6×50


Acquired: Sample courtesy of Fred Rewey owner of Nomad Cigar Co.

I have had the pleasure of knowing Fred Rewey the owner of Nomad Cigar Co. for the last couple years, I am always excited to see what he comes up with next in the cigar world. If you have been reading our blog for a while, you have surely seen our post on the Nomad Connecticut Fuerte. If there are two things I know about Connecticut cigars it’s that they are hard to do right and the Nomad Connecticut Fuerte is the best one on the market today. That being said, I was very excited to try Fred’s entry into the full-bodied market with the Nomad C-276.

Borrowed from the Nomad Cigar Co. website, “The name C-276 also has a back story. The “C” is for Concepción, one of two volcanoes on Ometepe Island. “276″ is the square kilometers of the island.”

The all new Nomad C-276 is a box pressed cigar and comes in 21 count boxes. There are five sizes total:

-Corona 5 ½ x 46

-Robusto 5 x 50

-Toro 6x 50

-Toro Grande 6 x 58

-Torpedo 6 ½ x 52

Looks: First looking at this cigar, the band is black and trimmed with chrome. The Nomad logo is red with chrome and bright white letters that read, “NOMAD”. On one side of the band in chrome lettering read, “C-276” and on the other Fred’s Twitter handle, “@GODFADR.” The cigar itself is box pressed and features a medium to dark brown Ecuadorian Habano Oscuro wrapper with some small veins. The combination of the band and this darker wrapper leaf really give this cigar a bold look.

Taste: On the pre-light draw I am immediately hit with some strong pepper and spice notes. Upon first light I am greeted with some rich cocoa and coffee flavors along with the spice and pepper. About a quarter of the way in the pepper notes have mellowed just a bit and a faint creaminess has been detected in the background.   At the mid way point a slight nuttiness has become present that further compliments this excellent flavor profile. The aforementioned flavors continue to stay present throughout the remainder of the smoke ending strong and leaving a positive aftertaste on my palate.

Strength: I would rate the Nomad C-276 in the light to medium full-bodied category.

Burn: Burn was smooth and steady requiring no touch ups. Construction appears to be good with the ash holding firm only falling when tapped. Smoke was full and white.

My recommendation, if you like full-bodied cigars and you are looking for a stick that is full of flavor, look no further. The Nomad Cigar Co. C-276 hits extremely high on the flavor notes and is very enjoyable. Buy it? You bet. Hell, buy a box, because I have a sneaking suspicion that these sticks will age excellently.
