As of late Nat Sherman has been on a roll - the hits keep comin' like a boy band from the 90's. And now fans of this legendary brand will be happy to know that Sterling is the best damn Nat Sherman yet.
Nat Sherman Sterling raises the bar across the board. From the packaging and bands to the new exciting blend, it's legit. Instead of a traditional cedar box, each cigar is tied in wheels of 25 and laid to rest sans cellophane in slide topped okoume wood boxes. This wood is neutral, allowing only the flavors of tobacco to marry (instead of the traditional cedar influence). And I'm no fortune teller, but I have a feeling this blend is going to age exceptionally well. It all starts with a blend of Dominican long-fillers, the oldest aged a full ten years, layered inside a Dominican binder.
Seamlessly draped around this impressive core, a buttery smooth Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper. The flavor is full and satisfying, while the body remains perfectly balanced between mild and medium. The end result is a rich, mellow, complex flavor that’s worth every penny. Notes of roasted cedar, bread, cocoa, cinnamon, sweetness, and creaminess combine in a well-balanced fashion. Pick up Nat Sherman Sterling for a premium experience.
Elegant, sophisticated and unique stick. Medium bodied with tons of cream, wood, toast with a bit of sweetness. Worth the price. An outstanding experience, especially in this era of large ring-gauge, ligero-heavy blends. Best cigar I've had this year.

A little pricey for what you get - which is a pretty decent stick. It's a nice change from my mostly narrow Fuente palete. Nice draw, smooth, medium body. Solid, but average.
This was my 2nd order from Cigar International, and couldn't have come at a better time. My good buddy Andy had just moved back into the area, and we celebrated by getting together and burning some Nat Sherman Sterling's that I just purchased and combined it with 3 intense games of chess. Thanks for a great afternoon Cigars International!
