Esteli and Jalapa Valley Nicaragua, Foundation Cigar, Foundation Cigars, Havana Seed CT No. 142, Jamastran Valley Honduras, San Andreas Mexico, The Tabernacle I can’t believe that it’s been almost a year since I’ve smoked The Tabernacle Havana Seed CT No. 142 by Foundation Cigar.

This cigar is another truly great cigar smoking experience with this rich blend of a specially developed Connecticut Havana Seed #142 wrapper from the “Connecticut” master blender Nick Melillo.

I think it’s time to purchase some more of these fantastic cigars!

Today’s Havana seed cold draw of faint barnyard and cedar and not much more that I could detect.

Once lit powerful dry smoke and pepper spice on the retrohale from earthy flavors at the start.

Cedar, leather, and pepper are taking me home.

Truth be told, this is great cigar, but for some reason it’s not resonating with me. I still prefer the “OG” The Tabernacle. We’ll see what happens. I still have a handful of these in the TupperDor.

Ok, it’s been 9-days since; these too early to smoke puppies have been resting since I received them from Ralph Sumo (12.11.18), so I’m going to fire one up today.

This is a good cigar, but it’s right off the truck I’m afraid. Too early to smoke.
