          I have been wanting to try a Nat Sherman cigar for a while now because of all the buzz surrounding them. I have not heard one negative review and the buzz seemed to be well justified. Thus, I decided to bite the bullet and buy a box of their famous Timeless series of cigars. I went for the churchill because thats what most of the reviews were saying was good and they were definitely right. I pulled out one of the oily cigars from its cellophane and was greeted by a pungent aroma of hay, aged tobacco and cedar. The cigar was very firm, but overall really light. I cut off the head with my guillotine cutter and lit it with my butane torch. The initial flavours were a very creamy cedar and a strong coffee.

First Third (1/3) – 25 min

         The cedar that I mentioned on the initial light was present for the first five minutes or so but eventually subsided and was replaced with a more caramel like flavour. The coffee was definitely there but it was on the cusp of a sweeter, more delectable cocoa. The draw was really nice so it allowed a great amount of smoke to get through which made it much easier to pick out the different flavours.

Second Third (2/3) – 20 min

           I was somewhat frustrated during this third, and unfortunately it happened with the four I tried. Hopefully it is not indicative of all of the Timeless churchill cigars, but the draw tightened up quite a bit. The cigar took a lot of pull to get any smoke through, and any smoke that did make it through was all but indistinguishable in flavour. Overall a disappointing third.

Final Third (3/3) – N/A

          I had to put the cigar down because it was entirely smokable.

Total Smoke Time: 45 min

The Verdict

          The Nat Sherman Timeless Churchill had the potential to be a class A stick, and i’m sure that it is. However the inconsistency in multiple stick in the box of churchill’s that I have shows that its not something you can bet on. Nonetheless, this cigar gets on the Leather Library 10-Point Stogie Scale a:

7.2
