 Connecticut Broadleaf, Foundation Cigar, Foundation Cigars, Nicaragua, Nick Melillo, Robusto, The Tabernacle What more can I say about this “Aged” (2018) The Tabernacle Robusto by Foundation Cigars that I haven’t said before…

Dressed in a dark, oily Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper comes rich tobacco flavors of dark espresso and dark chocolate with a spicy retrohale. A tribute to the construction, the burn is razor sharp as you can see.

In the second third, the transitions in tobacco flavors bring malty dark chocolate, and rich espresso, with a splash of leather… I’m totally diggin’ this cigar!

The Tabernacle is surely a cigar to behold and a pure pleasure to smoke!

I can’t wait until the next time… hopefully, I’ll choose it before another year passes.

Stay Smoky

 Connecticut Broadleaf, Foundation Cigar, Foundation Cigars, Nicaragua, Nick Melillo, Robusto, The Tabernacle I can’t believe that it had almost been a year since I smoked this Tabernacle in Robusto by Foundation Cigars. The only reason I pulled this out is that I wanted to get this registered in my palate for the upcoming new “The Tabernacle David” I’m planning on smoking this Wednesday…

This firmly tobacco-packed flavor bomb was a delight to rediscover as I chatted it up with the Fellas (Charlie and Greg) at Cascade Cigar today.

I’m looking forward to Wednesday’s treat!

Foundation Cigars, The Tabernacle, Connecticut Broadleaf, Nick MelilloTo 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 peppery 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
