Bear Cub Pick of the Week #2!

9 Sep , 2015,



So Much Class.

Nat Sherman’s vintage aesthetics get me every time.  This week I decided to feature their reproduction of the original Epoca Perfecto. It’s a delicious mild to medium bodied cigar with  creamy, nutty and sweet flavors with a hint of vanilla and spice. This masterpiece contains a Nicaraguan and Dominican Cuban Seed filler, finished off by a smooth  Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper.

Speculation is that Sherman came into partial ownership of Schwab Brothers and Baer (the original makers of Epoca cigars) in 1929 to settle a gambling debt. At the time, Sherman was running a Speakeasy in New York City. He eventually bought his partners out, and 86 years later is now known as one of the most prominent innovators of high-end tobacco products.

Nat Sherman’s cigar and cigarette lines capture the risque and glamorous culture of the American 1920’s: Prohibition, Speakeasys, Good Time Girls, East Coast Gangsters, Lindy Hop, and yes–Cuban Cigars. Epoca was originally produced in Florida and Cuba. This cigar is a homage to the original Epoca Cigar–and well so. Even the box they come in has reproduced art from 1929!

I guess I’m just a sucker for a cigar with a bit of cool history behind it. 

But I’m okay with that. If you’re looking for a cigar with genuine characteristics of a Cuban, look no further.
