Foundation Cigar Co Charter Oak Habano
The Foundation Charter Oak Habano cigar is a bit more straightforward, following an incredibly popular formula for modern cigars. This blend takes high-quality Nicaraguan leaf for the filler and binder and then wraps it in Ecuador Habano tobacco. This one too won the respect of Cigar Aficionado’s experts, who gave it a 92-point rating and described the smoking experience this way: “The full draw and even burn to deliver a creamy, dense smoke that envelopes the palate with impressions of nuts, pepper, walnut shell, and sweet cappuccino, all of which recur on the long finish.”
These blends from Foundation are just outstanding, with some even topping the charts (like the Wise Man, which was the #3 cigar of 2018 and landed a stunning 95 rating), so we treat each one as a potentially great cigar. It looks like this installment of the trio is every bit as delicious as its siblings, even with the differences between them. It really makes sense to think of each one as its own blend. The team clearly didn’t feel constrained to change only the wrapper for consistency’s sake, instead preferring to make a tasty smoke regardless of what changes were needed. Melillo and co. have done well, and the Foundation Charter Oak Habano cigar is just another way to do the home state of Connecticut proud.
