Foundation Metapa Claro Robusto

Team Cigar Review: Foundation Metapa Claro Robusto

The Foundation Metapa Claro Robusto is another Foundation release that's a hitter. At this point, new releases from Nick should become an auto buy. Barnyard funktastic, earthy, nutty, sweet. I'll also add, it doesn't matter where it's made. It's good, so just go buy at least a few.

Team Cigar Review: Foundation Metapa Maduro Robusto

Typically, Nick does a great job of creating his own unique blends that are different than a lot of the homogenous blends out there, especially out of AJF. But this cigar isn't the case. It tastes more like a spicier, stronger version of most AJF cigars. The monotony of strength and heavy handed earthiness isn't palate enticing. As a result, the Foundation Metapa Maduro Robusto is a pass for me.

Team Cigar Review: Foundation Olmec Maduro Double Corona

This Foundation Olmec Maduro Double Corona was a pleasure to smoke. The medium-full viscosity complimented the darker flavors of dry cocoa, light cream, cedar, subtle dried red pepper spice and leather very well. Compound that by AJ's world class perfection in burn and draw and you got yourself a winner.

Team Cigar Review: Foundation Olmec Claro Double Corona

My experience reviewing the Foundation Olmec Claro Double Corona was an overall average flavor experience, with the most complex and engaging combinations coming in the first third. The second and last thirds were too light and not at all engaging. I felt as if I smoked the wrong size for this blend, and although I can't see myself returning to the Double Corona, I'll be giving this a shot in a different vitola.

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 Havana Seed CT #142 Corona

In the case of the Foundation Tabernacle Havana Seed CT #142 Corona, the pure number of full flavors ranging from sweetness in chocolate, bread to spices such as dry red peppers and cinnamon made me engaged the entire time. So engaged that every draw made me say "dang this is legit." Excellent job by Nick.
