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).
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.
