To commemorate and honor the great state of Connecticut and its tobacco tradition Foundation Cigar Company has created for release, a very limited number of Chest Collector “Humidor” Boxes that will be available in stores.
A $5 Connecticut broadleaf providing rich dankness, gritty earth and milk chocolate?! I just found my every day broadleaf cigar (if there is such a thing). This is an easy box purchase. Nick created a budget home run with this blend. Very impressive!
In my opinion, an infused cigars purpose is to present flavors that are appealing to people that don't enjoy the flavors that a non-infused cigar would provide. In this case, the only flavors like that were the minty/menthol flavor and I don't personally care for that in a cigar.
Foundation Cigar Co., as expected by most, creates a tasty Connecticut Broadleaf cigar. This is a good example of what a Connecticut Broadleaf cigar should be; chewy and dirty, medium full / full bodied cigar.
This was a great cigar that I can smoke all day. Well rounded body and flavors providing sweetness, spice, bitterness, delicious retrohale and finish. Nick Melillo blends a killer Connecticut shade cigar!
Master blender and world tobacco traveler, Nicholas Melillo, has released the next cigar in Foundation’s lineup: THE UPSETTERS, a blend of Jamaican and Nicaraguan fillers which is a travel story itself, documenting Melillo’s endless trips to tobacco fields and curing barns.
