I was super excited to get the chance to review the Nomad Fuerte as I follow Fred Rewey @godfadr on twitter and he is probably one of the coolest guys in the industry.  So when I received this cigar I couldn’t wait to review it. The smell is lite and airy with soft hints of tobacco. I get a subtle pepper shot from the cold draw. The band is very simple though, only showing the company logo and the twitter handle @godfadr (awesome social media integration).

Nomad Cigars Connecticut Fuerte smoked

First puffs– Pepper and an extremely deep cedar flavor hit right away and hit hard. Umm someone forgot to tell Fred Rewey this was a Connecticut cigar. A pretty powerful start for a whats supposed to be mild. Draw is good and producing a good amount of smoke along with it.
First third– After the serious start, it clears the way for a creamy buttery smoke. Still has hints of cedar and pepper, along with a slight cashew nutty taste. This cigar should be nicknamed Margarine, it’s so buttery, probably butter infused for a month in a vault. Really it is making this creamy and enjoyable. The draw and construction are top notch.
Second third– There is still a slight pepper lingering, which makes this unique, it has a nice bite to it. I get a bit more of a nutty flavor during this second half, paired with that creamy butter.

Nomad Cigars Connecticut Fuerte Final

Final third– Here we go again, the pepper is surging back and hits pretty hard. This is a fitting way to bring the cigar to a close, showing that its meant to stand out and set its self apart. Continuing through this last third is the buttery creaminess and its still drawing like a champ.


Overall an amazingly unique take on the Connecticut. You may be thinking to yourself going into the cigar, like I did, “Oh its just another Connecticut, its going to be a boring smoke.” WRONG!! Its not boring. Nomad Cigars took what could have been a portfolio filler cigar and flipped it upside down, making a cigar that stands out above the rest. If your a new smoker looking to jump forward to a stronger cigar, this is the perfect bridge for that. This will also surprise a lot of seasoned smokers out there. I would suggest buying a fiver and storing some, as you will want to smoke more than one.
