The Tabernacle by Foundation Cigars

To celebrate the imminent arrival of the new Tabernacle Havana Seed CT 142, I am lighting up this beauty The Tabernacle by Foundation Cigars today.

I’m back again with this firmly packed dark coffee colored Tabernacle cigar. I fell in love with this cigar at the very first puff. Dark chocolate and Maduro leaf sweetness welcome me as pepper spice hits my nostrils. The first third draws are producing creamy mouthfuls of chewy smoke and I’m smiling.

No rush, this cigar takes time. I know that from experience. I let this dark cigar slowly warm up letting the flavors meld and mellow together.

Halfway and pepper is starting to coat my tongue making a lasting finish. I’m in the zone.

Stay Smokey
Stay Chill
