Charter Oak Toro Maduro by Foundation Cigars


Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper Mmmmm, Good!

Let’s be real, Cigars can be an expensive hobby. Now, acclaimed blender/creator Nick Melillo from Foundation Cigars has produced and manufactured an outstanding affordable “value” cigar; The Charter Oak by Foundation Cigars.

Opening cold draw; cocoa and hay/grass, and a mouthful of smokey goodness that only Connecticut Broadleaf can deliver followed by almonds, coffee, and leathery earth.

I’m lovin’ my visit with the Charter Oak Maduro Toro

Life is Good
Stay Smokey

My first time with the Charter Oak Maduro. I picked it up at Timber Valley Tobacco and then headed to Redtail Golf Center for some putting practice

Hmmm, nice stick.
