Foundation Charter Oak Especiales Pegnataro

Personal Cigar Review: Foundation Charter Oak Especiales Pegnataro

The Foundation Charter Oak Especiales Pegnataro had an average flavor profile throughout with a focus around toasted oak and hay, black pepper and earth. Some components dropped out or faded back as the cigar went along, not really providing an experience that was all that interesting. Between this version and the Pasquale, I found the Pasquale a bit better and I wouldn't really see coming back to this cigar in the future.

Personal Cigar Review: Foundation Charter Oak Especiales Pasquale

The Foundation Charter Oak Especiales Pasquale had a nice start, with the bakers chocolate providing a nice accent. The second third dropped a level as the chocolate departed and the earth picked up and the profile remained at that level the rest of the way. Overall, a fairly average smoking experience and not something I'd really see myself returning to.

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.

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!
