Today’s two cigar reviews on Puff.com will cover the Nomad S-307 and the Hoja de Flores Autentico Maduro, so keep reading to find out if either has what it takes to make it into your humidor.

Nomad S-307 Robusto

AJ Fernandez decided to do a cigar for Nomad Cigar Company, and it was released during the fall of last year.  Here’s the scoop on the brand, as provided in the official press release:

“Nomad Cigar Company launched in 2012 with four sizes of classic handrolled Dominican cigars and quickly grew the line to seven sizes; not to mention conquering social media.  In spring of 2013 Nomad created Esteli Lot 1386, Rewey’s first project in Nicaragua, available in limited edition 12 count boxes. Nomad’s next step is this full production of Nicaraguan cigars.”

Here’s what Fred Rewey, the founder of Nomad, had to say about the S-307:

“I am honored to have my first full production of a Nicaraguan cigar being blended and manufactured at Tabacalera Fernandez. The new blend is amazing and I am thrilled to expand the Nomad cigar line to include Nicaragua – in a really big way.”

Now that you have a bit of a look into the Nomad brand, it’s time to see just how good its S-307 selection is (if at all).

The Nomad S-307 Robusto measures 5 x 50.  It’s also offered in a 6 x 50 Toro and a 6/5 x 52 Torpedo.  The cigar’s filler is made up of Nicaraguan tobacco, and its binder is Ecuadorian Habano.  An Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper tops it off.

The first thing I notice about the Nomad S-307’s appearance is its box-pressed shape.  I really enjoy box-pressed sticks, so that already gives me a favorable impression of the S-307 before I even light it.  The cigar has a dark brown wrapper that’s a bit oily with a few prominent veins.  It feels smooth to the touch, and giving it a squeeze from top to bottom reveals no soft spots.  The band near the head is black, red, and silver in color with the Nomad name stamped over a modern-looking logo.  There’s a pre-light aroma that’s sweet, while the cold taste is spicy.

It doesn’t take much work to light the Nomad S-307 Robusto, and once lit, the cigar exhibits a great burn.  The draw is just right and each puff puts out plenty of smoke.  Only a couple very quick touch-ups are needed.  No-relights.  The ash is gray and solid in nature.  Smoking time is just over an hour long.
