Nomad Cigar Co. Therapy Lines

Nomad therapy

The newest line from Nomad Cigar Co. and brand owner Fred Rewey is, Nomad Therapy. The Nomad Therapy line consists of three blends; a Connecticut, Habano, and Maduro. The Therapy line will be available in two sizes, a 4 ½ x 50 short Robusto and a 6 x 50 Toro. We decided to go a bit crazy and give you three reviews for the price of one!

Nomad Therapy Connecticut

Nomad Therapy Connecticut

 

Wrapper: Ecuadorian Connecticut

Binder: San Andres

Filler: Nicaraguan

Size: 4 ½ x 50 Short Robusto

Price: $7.49

Acquired: Purchased at Burn’s Tobacconists, Chattanooga, TN.

My morning started rather early waking up at 3 am. After walking around a bit, knocking out some small projects, and drinking a couple cups of coffee there wasn’t much else left for me to do but fire up a stick. Welcome in the Nomad Therapy Connecticut.

*I will preface this by saying I am a huge Connecticut fan. Connecticut done right with flavor is not an easy task to pull off.

Looks: First off this cigar has a white band with the Nomad logo in blue located front and center reading, “NOMAD” below it.   On the back in blue reads, “NOMAD CIGAR COMPANY” and Fred’s twitter handle, “@GODFADR.” The band is simple, not overstated, and a good mix of classic and modern design. Overall, it is appealing to the eye. The wrapper leaf itself is an Ecuadorian Connecticut leaf that is light in color and has a clean appearance with minimal veins running through it. This wrapper leaf has the slightest bit of an oily sheen to it.

Smoking Conditions: About 70 degrees with a slight breeze at 6 am.

Pre-Light: On the pre-light I picked up an aroma of hay. The pre-light draw was that of hay and grassy notes.

Taste: Upon first light I was instantly hit with a hazelnut nuttiness and some slight salt notes on the sides of my tongue. The Therapy Connecticut opened up after the first few puffs revealing some bright cedar and cream notes. The slightest bit of pepper was also noted, most likely being derived from the San Andres binder. The Therapy Connecticut overall proved to be a solid and consistent stick in terms of flavor.

Strength: Mild

Burn: Spot on even.

Buy it? If you are a sucker for a good Connecticut cigar like I am this is definitely a cigar for you! Fred’s Connecticut Fuerte line is currently one of my favorite go to Connecticut sticks, the Therapy Connecticut is a milder and somewhat tamer Connecticut but that slight bit of pepper on the back end gives it a nice little jolt of flavor. I can definitely see this cigar being added in to my regular rotation of breakfast smokes.

Nomad Therapy Habano

Nomad Therapy Habano

 

Wrapper: Habano Rosado Ecuador

Binder: Habano Jalapa

Filler: Nicaraguan and Dominican

Size: 4 ½ x 50 Short Robusto

Price: $7.49

Acquired: Purchased at Burns Tobacconists, Chattanooga, TN.

Welcome to round two of the Nomad Therapy review, next up the Nomad Therapy Habano.

Looks: The Nomad Therapy Habano sports a white band like the Connecticut, but the outline of the Nomad Logo and writing is maroon in color. Logo front and center and again, “NOMAD’ underneath. On the back in maroon reads, “NOMAD CIGAR COMPANY” and Fred’s twitter handle, “@GODFADR.” The leaf, Habano Rosado Ecuador, is medium brown in color and has some small veins running through it. This wrapper leaf has an oily sheen to it and a light toothiness to it.

Smoking Conditions: Approximately 70 degrees with a slight breeze at 7:30pm.

Pre-Light: The pre-light aroma of this cigar was that of hay and a slight bit of ammonia. Pre-light draw was hay notes.

Taste: Upon first lighting the new Nomad Therapy Habano I noticed a definite sweetness to the tobacco. The primary flavors were that of hay and grass with a light background nuttiness. These flavors stayed relatively consistent throughout the smoke with the nuttiness gaining a strong foothold in the final third This cigar ended in a very pleasurable culmination of these flavor notes.

Strength: Medium.

Burn: Spot on and perfect.

Buy it? This is one of the best all day smokes I have found lately. Balanced and flavorful without being too strong or overbearing is the best way to describe the Nomad Therapy Habano. The perfect medium bodied full flavor smoke for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or anytime of day. Personally, I could smoke this cigar everyday, actually, that may happen!

Nomad Therapy Maduro

Nomad Therapy Maduro

 

Wrapper: Pennsylvania Broadleaf

Binder: Habano Jalapa

Filler: Nicaraguan

Size: 4 ½ x 50

Price: $7.49

Acquired: Purchased at Burns Tobacconists, Chattanooga, TN.

Enter in the big daddy, the Nomad Therapy Maduro.

Looks: Much like it’s siblings, the Therapy Maduro has a white band, however the Maduro version has a black Nomad logo and writing. The writing is the same, “NOMAD” on the front under the logo and “NOMAD CIGAR COMPANY” on the back with, “@GODFADR” underneath it.

Smoking Conditions: 65 degrees at 8:30pm.

Pre-light: Pre-light aroma of licorice and taste of wood and pepper.

Taste: Get ready for the pepper hit! Upon first light I was instantly hit with black and red pepper notes on the lips. The initial pepper hit quickly mellows into that of a nice black pepper flavoring. The black pepper flavors are accompanied by a nuttiness and notes of charred oak wood. The pepper, nuttiness, and charred wood notes are the primary flavors in this smoke and maintain consistency throughout.

Strength: Full

Burn: Once again, the burn on the Nomad Therapy Maduro was perfect.

Buy it? If you had asked me this question upon first puff I would have said it was a bit too strong for me. However, after getting a few puffs in and letting the flavors mellow this became an excellent stick that was full of flavor. If you are looking for a full-bodied cigar that sports a ton of flavor than this Maduro is the stick for you.

For me, these are three sticks that I was really looking forward to. So much so that they were some of the cigars I was looking for on my trip to the Chattanooga Tweet Up this year. You know if you are willing to travel a few hours for cigars there is a level of dedication to the hobby. The downfall to that is sometimes you expect too much from the cigar and are disappointed after tasting it. I am happy to report that in no way was the case with any of the Nomad Therapy line.   The Connecticut Fuerte release from Nomad last year really put this brand on the map for me personally, Fred has outdone himself this year putting out three great new sticks to add to his repertoire.
