Pre-Light

This Nat Sherman 1930 cigar has a great looking retro band on it while having a nice chocolate brown wrapper. This cigar is available in five sizes, possibly a sixth with a Super Lancero being listed on their website. Todays smoke is the Gran Robusto (5.25×54). Price is $8.50-$12 which seems to be what more and more cigars are being released at. I am not a fan of the higher cost and if these higher costs continue I really hope they consider 10 count boxes for everything to make it a bit more affordable.

First Half

Salted nut up front on this Nat Sherman 1930 with a sharp lingering spice on the palate more so than on the retrohale. Very nice draw right off the bat. There is a dry flavor hanging around that reminds me of cocoa at this point. That dry cocoa is far in the background now so it may be a fleeting memory soon. At about two inches in the spice got a little softer on the palate and the salted nut came even more to the front basically eliminating the cocoa. The nut taste is more inline with a walnut. Without the spice I would swear there is Cuban tobacco in here. I thought “cubanesque” when I smoked the first one also. I do not smoke many Cubans but that is the word that struck me both times now. Solid medium smoke at this point with a very slight nicotine note to it.

Second Half

Second half of the Nat Sherman 1930 starts off well with the spice coming back a little, more on the retrohale than the palate. Solid medium that is creeping up slowly. Ash holds on for an inch plus but it will fall off before 2 inches normally so be prepared. Cigar is building in strength to the full category, a low full. Salt has picked up along with the spice. A sweet component is rearing its head and reminds me of sweetened coffee. Slight dull taste has come into play, kind of like a woody taste but creamy. Spice has picked up along with the sweetened coffee. Full at this point for me but only have about an inch left. Burn still great.

Wrap-Up

Would I buy it again? Yes. This is a cigar that I think would age very well. I would love to hang on to some of these for a couple years to see if I am right. Due to the price point I couldn’t smoke these a lot but they would go nicely in the evening after a good meal and maybe have some wine or bourbon.

  1. Thanks for the great info on this one mike. Great review. I’ve seen a couple of these up here shoulda grabbed when I saw em havent seen them since.I really like the spicyness in my cigars.
    Could you recomend a couple other sticks by nat sherman if there are any? Don’t see them very often in calgary. Thanks Mike

    1. Timeless – you have to try Timeless if you haven’t!

      I like some of the other Nat Sherman cigars also but the Timeless and now this 1930 really opened peoples eyes I think.

  2. BONUS TRACK: those of you cigar-lovers and bird-watchers out there — pretty sure we’ve got some nice, classic, retro Chestnut-Sided Warbler in the background on this one., with some notes of catbird.

    Seriously though, great review that has me interested to taste this one.

  3. Hey Mike in answer to your question a few weeks ago about the closed foot on cigars, I just had one recently with a closed foot I just lit through it worked really well for me but I use a torch lighter. That’s my prefered method.
