The Nat Sherman brand has been around for a long time, ever since the Nat Sherman store first opened up in 1930 in New York City. The store has changed location over the intervening years, but it is still a big name in NYC. Nat Sherman has always been better known for their cigarettes than for their cigars, however, and they have been through some difficult times. But the brand made a come back with several releases like the Nat Sherman Timeless Collection blend. I decided to try the elegant torpedo (No. 2) for myself to see how it measured up to its strong reputation.

Appearance : ★★★★☆
The Nat Sherman Timeless Collection No. 2 is an eye-catching torpedo with a classic shape and a warm brown wrapper with a slight reddish tint that makes the color look very rich. The band is also very appealing, with unique wraparound lettering for the logo. There are a few prominent veins, but overall it is quite smooth and firm (not too firm). The pre-light aroma is beautiful, and smells very warm and inviting. Just smelling it, I am excited to try this cigar.

Construction : ★★★★★
The construction of this cigar is as nice as it gets. The draw is just right from the very start, and remains that way through the rest of the experience. The burn line is also nice and even, and the ash hangs on very well.

Flavor : ★★★★½
I am loving the flavors right from the start. The same warm, delicious scent I was picking up before lighting is present in the aromatic smoke. The flavors are pleasantly spicy and remind me of the holidays. I think that is nutmeg that I’m picking up on there. There is a backdrop of cedar, and something fruity here as well. There’s also just a touch of anise, which adds a unique dimension to the flavor profile. I am a huge anise fan, though, so it can’t go wrong there. In the middle third, cinnamon rises to the foreground, mixing nicely with the nutmeg, and I am also starting to pick up coffee. I was worried that the anise was going to be short-lived, but it’s still very prominently present here. The chocolately flavors are still present as well.

The last third is very nice, mostly leather and cedar, but the coffee and chocolate are still there as well. The spice continues through straight to the end, and there’s no bitterness in the finish.

Value : ★★★★½
At $8.00 a stick, it doesn’t get better than this. This is a very nice cigar with an amazing blend of flavors and a wonderful progression. I love how much warmth there is as a result of the spices. It is a very comforting blend, and is perfect for a cold winter day.

Overall Rating : ★★★★½
This cigar is a great way to welcome in the winter holidays, if you ask me. I would enjoy it any time of year, but I do think there is something about it that makes me think of the holiday season. With a beautiful appearance, excellent construction, and delicious flavors, Nat Sherman Timeless Collection No. 2 would make a great gift for yourself or a friend.
