Team Cigar Review: Foundation Charter Oak Habano Torpedo

Team Cigar Review: Foundation Charter Oak Habano Torpedo

The Foundation Charter Oak Habano Torpedo is a great example of a cigar that punches above its price point and delivers flavor complexity that is still restrained enough for the light bodied cigar smoker. I will happily return to the Charter Oak Habano.

Team Cigar Review: Foundation El Güegüense 5 Year Aniversario

Team Cigar Review: Foundation El Güegüense 5 Year Aniversario

The Foundation El Güegüense 5 Year Aniversario overall was a good experience, but I still find myself a bit disappointed. When you consider some of the high performing past Foundation releases, the fact that this is an anniversary cigar, and the price point, I feel that the cigar under performed.

Team Cigar Review: Foundation The Tabernacle Goliath

Team Cigar Review: Foundation The Tabernacle Goliath

The Foundation The Tabernacle Goliath did enough to keep my palate engaged through the first and second thirds. The last third was a bit of a let down, but the combination of flavors and an interesting vitola format won me over in the end. The price point might have me hesitant to smoke these more regularly, but I think this will be another release win for Foundation.

Team Cigar Review: Foundation Menelik

Team Cigar Review: Foundation Menelik

The Foundation Menelik is a solid release and it is a great size. I think if you are looking for a quality Mexican offering with great AGANORSA Nicaraguan fillers, you will be pleased with the cigar. It may not be game changing, but it is another solid Mexican release to the market.

Team Cigar Review: Foundation Tabernacle CT Havana Seed #142 Lancero

Team Cigar Review: Foundation Tabernacle CT Havana Seed #142 Lancero

The Foundation Tabernacle CT Havana Seed #142 Lancero is complex from start to finish and while there may not be a lot of transitioning, what is delivered has tons of depth. The Tabernacle CT Havana Seed #142 line in general is great, but it smokes wonderfully in the Lancero format.
