From their humble beginnings in 1930, in the heart of New York City’s Garment District, Nat Sherman has become one of the most recognized and sought-after brands in the premium tobacco industry. Still family owned and operated, their multi-generational commitment has infused a passion for being a service-centric company, which extends not only to their customers, but also to their business partners and the extended family of Nat Sherman employees.
True to its heritage, the Nat Sherman Flagship store, known as the “Townhouse,” is located on 42nd Street, just off Fifth Avenue, in New York City. It is a legendary oasis that welcomes international clientele seeking a uniquely timeless and memorable experience. And for New Yorkers in-the-know, it is a quintessential local landmark. Nat Sherman has remained an esteemed New York family business for more than 80 years, and their commitment to excellence, quality and service is timeless.
There is a very hearty and rustic oily wrapper that is silky to the touch. A great earthy and coffee aroma emanate from the body. The foot smelled similarly but with a little more spiciness. The wrapper was very smooth with minimal veins – evenly colored with an old world traditional presentation and a bit of toothiness.
Once lit, dense spicy smoke hits the palate right away along with rich tobacco notes. There was little to no resistance on the draw, giving away to thick and flavorful clouds of smoke. More spices were produced to the palate as I moved deeper into the cigar. Full-flavored texture at the middle of the body began to mellow out the Divino as toasty notes were introduced. It then intensified in flavor, delivering to its true full body characteristics.
The Nat Sherman Divino has perfect overall construction coupled with a great burn and draw. It is very consistent in delivering rich flavors and a slow even burn all the way through the smoke. Just enough sweetness and earth tones round off this great cigar. Divino provides a smoking experience that is a must try for all.
