Foundation Cigar Co Tabernacle Havana Seed CT
We don’t know exactly what they did, but we can assume that the Foundation Tabernacle Havana Seed CT took some effort to create!
Foundation owner Nick Mellilo is a longstanding broadleaf advocate, coming from Connecticut where he could look out over the fields of tobacco if he liked. One of the signature leaves of the Connecticut River Valley is broadleaf, and this is what graces the outside of the Foundation Tabernacle Havana Seed CT cigar. Inside, much like the original Tabernacle, you still get a Mexican San Andrés binder. You also get a long-filler blend that includes Nicaraguan and Honduran tobacco from the Jamastran area.
Whatever the Foundation team was doing, they wound up with quite an impressive leaf. The No. 142 wrapper of the Tabernacle Havana Seed CT cigar is quite oily and needs about 3 years to properly ferment, develop, and age. This isn’t surprising to those who know broadleaf, which is famous for being difficult to work with and not a type of tobacco that’s ready to go right out of the box. You’ve got to be ready to battle the leaf patiently to tame it and make it ready for blending in premium cigars.
The blend as a whole brings a delicious flavor to fans of the dark leaf. It’s rich and earthy, but also brings cedar, spice, and natural sweetness. When you want something mature and well crafted, the Foundation Tabernacle Havana Seed CT cigar is a choice you can really sink your teeth into. Some blends use a little bit of Maduro to get the job done, but this cigar goes all-in on earthy tobacco.
If you thought the original Tabernacle didn’t go far enough, this is the next step – an impressive experiment by the “Chief of Broadleaf.”
