Stogie Reviews: Nat Sherman Suave De Witt

19 Apr 2007

Nat ShermanThis honey-hued beauty checks in as one of the best bargains I’ve encountered lately. A four and 1/2 inch stick with a 50 ring gauge at $3.50 that’s enjoyable and well made.

I believe Suave is a new line for Nat Sherman, introduced since its affiliation with Lew Rothman. Unlike some of its other new entries, these fit in with the typical mild nature of Nats.

Don’t mistake mild for flavorless, though. This Dominican with a Connecticut shade wrapper is tasty, complex, and excellently crafted. The burn was nearly razor sharp and the ash was tight. But it’s the developing flavor that makes the De Witt a winner. It begins with pepper and a dry finish. Soon, that was overtaken by light cedar tones and then a subtle sweetness with some toast. I was drinking coffee with the stogie and they made a great combination.

For those wondering about the name, the five cigars in this line are named for New York politicians. De Witt Clinton, an 19th century governor, was instrumental in construction of the Erie Canal. Others celebrate W. Averell Harriman, Roosevelt (Teddy and FDR, I suppose), Nelson Rockefeller, and Fiorello LaGuardia (strangely, this is not the smallest, though the height of the “Little Flower” was widely remarked upon.)

If you enjoy a morning Connecticut or simply like mild cigars with taste, I’d highly recommend this cigar. The Nat Sherman Suave De Witt earns four out of five stogies.

    Hey guys, great review! I was curious about some of the Nat Sherman line of cigars. I'll have to give them a try!

    Another Great Review. I never smoked a Nat Sherman and if I get the chance I will have to pick some up and try them. Have heard mixed reviews on these, but still worth a try.

    The Suave Roosevelt Torepdo has quickly turned into my favorites, its certainly my one and only smoke in the morning. I agree with it perfectly marrying with coffee. It achieves that rarity of mildness with taste. Great great cigar and it comes in one of the prettiest boxes you'll ever see. You certainly won't throw that box out when empty.
