556 (Robusto Gordo), 5” x 56 ring gauge / MSRP $7.65, Burns Downtown
Nat Sherman has been producing their own brand of cigars since the early 1940s, selling most of them through their iconic 42nd Street New York store. A year or so ago, Wes--manager of the Burns location in Downtown Chattanooga--started to carry the new Nat Sherman Timeless, now referred to as the Timeless Dominican Republic since it uses Dominican fillers along with Nicaraguan leaf, then covers it all with a Honduran wrapper (also, it is produced in the Dominican Republic by Matasa). The new addition late in the year to the Timeless Collection is the Timeless Nicaragua, a Nicaraguan puro produced in Nicaragua by Plascencia Cigars, S.A. The Timeless Nicaragua is available in 3 box-pressed sizes. I bought a couple of them when at Burns Downtown a couple months ago; I smoked one that night and saved the other for this review.
If you aren't able to get Nat Sherman's Timeless at your local B&M, call Burns Downtown at 423-267-7740
