Description Foundation Cigar Co. was launched in 2015 by Nick Melillo. Before starting his own company, Melillo was perhaps best known in the industry for running production at the Drew Estate factory in Nicaragua. The Tabernacle is the cigar that showcases Melillo's passion for Connecticut Broadleaf. Melillo blended this smoke using a Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper over a San Andres binder and combined filler using tobacco from Honduras and Nicaragua.
Review: Cigar Aficionado This rustic looking toro smokes well, exhibiting a woody, nutty character. Persistent touches of sweetness and licorice recur on the finish.
Review: Cigar Dojo This is the perfect late-night stick! It’s like the dessert smoke for those that don’t want a cloying gaudiness. In other words, your Dark Chocolate Chipotle Fudge, your Spicy Chocolate Bark, your Tabasco-Smoked Chipotle Dark Chocolate Ice Cream… that kind of dessert.
