Like many of us, Foundation Cigar Co. Founder Nick Melillo has a strong connection to his home – in his case, that’s Connecticut. Which means, he has fondness for Connecticut tobaccos – especially the Broadleaf variety. He went biblical with his latest release, The Tabernacle and blended a seriously epic cigar.
Crafted at AJ Fernandez’s La Soledad farm in Estelí, Nicaragua, Tabernacle is dressed in dark, oily Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper. Beneath the sheets, you’ll find fillers from Estelí and Jalapa Valley. Deep and hearty notes of cocoa, leather, and black pepper make this cigar a divine offering from Foundation, with all the strength you’d expect from an AJ blend.
