Introducing the Bench Collection Legacy Series...

Introducing the Bench Collection Legacy Series...

Sam Perry: Nat Sherman 1990-Present
If you've followed the Nat Sherman story over the past 80 years, there is one resounding theme over all others to their success... Family. Nothing is more important. But family doesn't only mean the folks who's last name is Sherman. Ask any Sherman, and you'll understand immediately their profound affection and appreciation for their extended family - the hard working men and women who have gotten this brand where it is. The Nat Sherman Bench Collection Legacy Series celebrates the contributions and commitment of our most loyal employees of the Nat Sherman Store via very limited production cigars. Our first Legacy Series is The "Sam".

Sam Perry joined Nat Sherman at its 711 Fifth Avenue location in late summer of 1990. He began doing maintenance and porter work in the stock room, and moved on to work in the shipping and receiving areas of the business. In 1991 the store moved to 500 Fifth Avenue and Sam was quickly promoted to the position of Sales Associate by Joel Sherman, Nat's son who had returned to run the company upon Nat's passing. It is a position Sam has embraced and excelled at ever since. Talk to Sam in the store and he'll tell you stories of Milton Berle calling him just to chat, and inviting him to the Friar's Club with the boys. Sam has been the tobacconist to Bill Cosby, Sammy "The Bull" Gravano, Charles Barkley... and on and on... His love for cigars and industry has changed with the industry, seeing the rise and fall of the Cigar Boom and with it the brands that have come and gone. Sam shared, "Having my name on a Nat Sherman cigar makes me so proud of the work I've done, and makes me feel so appreciated by the Sherman Family."

The "Sam" is a 6x50 Toro (Sam's favorite) featuring sensational blend of filler tobaccos from the Dominican Republic, Nicaragua and Peru. A Dominican binder and gorgeous Ecuadorian-grown Connecticut wrapper finish this off. The "Sam" is available in boxes of ten cigars for $79.25 plus applicable taxes. These cigars WILL NOT last long. Sam says, "I really love this cigar. I can smoke it any time; before meals after meals… there's no aftertaste…It's smooth... it's just phenomenal…. Everyone who smokes this cigar will enjoy it."

Who could say it better than Sam? Sam - Thank you for all your hard work over the years, and for the many more years to come!

Stay tuned for MORE "Legacy Series" celebrating the incredible and extended Nat Sherman family!

Nat Sherman Bench Collection has Arrived.

The Nat Sherman Bench Collection

Since 1930, Nat Sherman has always strived to offer the finest goods available to our customers.  As our company and distribution grew, so too did our unique portfolio of Nat Sherman products.  From cigars to cigarettes to other lifestyle goods, each new product was a direct response to the needs of our customers.

Many of our Nat Sherman products are available at Premium Tobacconists throughout the world.  However, we do have a few things that are unique only to our Townhouse Flagship store in New York City.  The Bench Collection, is an example. 

The Nat Sherman Bench Collection is a series of cigars, made by different manufacturers in different countries in limited quantities.  These small productions permit the manufacturers to use rarer, more unique tobaccos since the blends don't need to be sustained for a long period of time.  When they're gone, they're gone.

This latest round of Bench Collection come from the MATASA factory.  Run by the Quesada family, the factory has been producing some of the industry's finest cigars including the Fonseca and Quesada brands as well as our own Nat Sherman Metropolitan and Metropolitan Maduro lines.  This new Bench collection is quite a departure from the flavors and experiences one might come to expect from MATASA and Nat Sherman.  And we're very excited to offer these cigars for as long as they last.

Available in four sizes, the cigars feature a beautiful Dominican-grown Corojo wrapper from the Navarrete region of the Cibao valley.  The filler tobaccos combine Ligero, Viso and Seco leaves from Dominican Republic and Nicaragua and are held together with a Dominican binder. They are wonderfully rich and complex, with an earthy undertone.  These cigars are available in boxes of 20.

6 7/8” x 48  $178.25
6” x 52  $170.00
5” x 50  $162.50
5 ½" x 43  $154.00

Our group will meet in Santiago on Tuesday, February 21st.  We will offer a wonderful welcome dinner for the group at Camp David.  There is an official welcome party at the Gran Almirante, and we will help arrange transportation for those who'd like to attend.
Wednesday through Friday offer different options of tours and other activities.  All meals are included.

Our group's preferred itinerary will be:
Wed - La Aurora Factory Tour
Thu - MATASA
Fri - Poker Tournament.

You may register with the same activities, or you may pick your own.  Transportation will be arranged for all events.

The Nat Sherman Bench Collection Returns

Since 1930, Nat Sherman has been committed to creating products in an effort to accommodate the needs of customers.  As demand increased for these products, so did distribution and availability.  Today, many Nat Sherman products are available all over the world.  However, we continue to be committed to our "local community" and develop specialty products that are exclusive to our Flagship Townhouse store.

The "Bench Collection" is just such a project.  Over the past couple years, "Bench Collection" projects have been made available.  These are unique "one-off" projects, made in cooperation with industry-leading manufacturers in very limited productions.

This new collection comes compliments of MATASA, the factory that has made our Metropolitan and Host series.  The four-size line is quite full bodied and sold in boxes of 20 cigars or of course individually.  Each size smokes quite differently, so be sure to try them all.  Final blend details and prices will be available soon.

Not to be confused with the Timeless Collection, the Bench Collection is an ongoing range of limited edition cigars made exclusively for the Nat Sherman Townhouse.

Successful Casa de Tabaco premiere at Nat Sherman Townhouse

The event also ushered in a larger selection of La Flor Dominicana products now available at the Townhouse in our walk-in humidor.





And as always SPIFF, New York City's premiere men's grooming venue, was on hand providing manicures and shoeshines.


Here is more coverage from this fantastic evening!

La Flor Dominicana "Casa de Tabaco" LAUNCH at Nat Sherman Townhouse


The Nat Sherman Townhouse will host the official launch of the La Flor Dominicana "Casa de Tabaco" on Wednesday, September 14, 2011.  From 12:00pm-7:00pm we will be offering a sales promo on all La Flor Dominicana products- buy any three La Flor Dominicana Cigars, get one free.

From 6:00-8:00pm, we'll host the official launch party for the new Casa de Tobacco in the Johnson Club Room.  Mr. Litto Gomez will be with us for this special occasion. Tickets are $50 per person and must be purchased in advance as attendance will be limited.  Each guest will receive three cigars; 1 Cabinet Cameroon, 1 Double Ligero Chisel and 1 of the New Air Bender Maduro as well as light hors d'oeuvres and spirits.  Guests will also have the first opportunity to purchase these very special cigars. Please contact Tina Parrish to purchase your ticket. 646-442-1850.

One of  the most exciting products to debut at this years annual IPCPR trade show was the La Flor Dominicana Casa de Tabaco.  La Flor Dominicana owner Litto Gomez has always been tremendously innovative, both in blending and in packaging.  From his "Chisel" shaped cigars, to "Factory Press" boxes, he undoubtedly excels in creativity, and his quality and consistency in his cigars themselves is superb. His newest creation, the Casa de Tabaco, is no exception.

The cigar is the newest addition to his already successful "Air Bender" line.  This one however- is the first ever Maduro version.  At 6 1/2" x 54, this hefty toro features the same fundamental blend as the standard Air Bender featuring Nicaraguan and Dominican filler tobaccos, however it's finished with a Brazilian Habano Maduro wrapper.

The box is a replica of the traditional curing barns used to hang and dry tobacco after harvest.  Each Casa contains 24 of these special cigars.  The box also has a slot for a "Humidipak" to humidify the interior, as well as a small accessories drawer to keep a cutter or lighter... or stash some cash for your "cigar fund".  These boxes should retail for about $360 PLUS applicable taxes.

The Nat Sherman Townhouse is the company's flagship store located at 12 East 42nd Street, just off Fifth Avenue in New York City.  http://www.natsherman.com/

Authentically Nat Sherman...

In the 1950's Nat Sherman was the exclusive distributor for the Cuban Bolivar Brand throughout the United States... Well, as it turns out... we didn't sell all of them.  Take a look at this glimpse back in time:

 














an excerpt from our history (full history can be found here)

The 1950's...





A boom time for the United States and for Nat Sherman too. The company started expanding its lines of cigars and cigarettes. The now famous Fantasia cigarette featuring colored paper wrappers and filled with an American blend rather than Cuban tobacco was introduced during the 1950's. The Cigaretello started selling exceedingly well after several Hollywood actors started smoking them (Nat Sherman had changed the blend to a much more palatable mixture). On the retail side, cigars were still sought after by many, and the retail location continued to attract people from all facets of life looking for a great smoke. And, since the company was one of only three authorized distributors of Cuban cigars East of the Mississippi and the exclusive distributor of the Bolivar brand in the entire country, customers were guaranteed to find a cigar they liked. In fact, Nat Sherman's humidors still hold hundreds of Cuban cigars rolled during this decade, representing one of the largest caches of these exquisite specimens in the world.
