For those cigar enthusiasts that are seeking out something completely new to smoke, this year’s most anticipated release may be the first cigars from the newly formed brand, Ferio Tego. The company has announced that it will be releasing its first cigars this year, both which will be presented as Toros and limited in quantity, meaning you’ll want to snatch them up as soon as they’re released or you may miss out.
Ferio Tego Elegancia and Ferio Tego Generoso will both measure 6 x 50 and will be sold in 10-count humidors that each will have a suggested retail price for $210. Ferio Tego Elegancia will be made in the Dominican Republic by the Quesada family, a longtime collaborator and partner of Nat Sherman International, the company Ferio Tego’s founders used to work for. Ferio Tego Elegancia will feature an Ecuadorian wrapper, Dominican binder, and filler tobaccos from Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic.
The Ferio Tego Generoso will be made by the Plasencia family in Nicaragua. It will have a Honduran shade-grown wrapper, Nicaraguan binder and Nicaraguan filler tobaccos.
Both the Ferio Tego Elegancia and Generoso are set to ship to stores during the first week in October. This year’s release of both cigars are limited due to tight production.
“Our 2021 Ferio Tego offerings are quite different from one another in style and pedigree, yet both share a commonality of balance and body,” says Michael Herklots, co-owner of Ferio Tego. “A mild cigar need not be thin on the palate nor flavor deficient, and a bolder cigar does not need to be ferocious and aggressive. We worked very hard together with the factories to achieve a full-bodied mouth feel and presence across both blends in order to establish a ‘house style’ so to speak, while still preserving the elegant expression of creamier brighter notes of Elegancia, and the generous presentation of dense savory notes of Generoso. Both blends stand on their own much the way a winery offers a Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon together.”
Ferio Tego will also be re-releasing previous cigar brands owned by Nat Sherman International, such as Timeless and Metropolitan, later this year.
