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:

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.
