One hundred years ago, Lord Carnarvon left Highclere Castle for the ancient sands of Egypt. He, along with archaeologist Howard Carter discovered the tomb of King Tutankhamun, hidden for 3000 years. We crafted this cigar for the Highclere Castle Cigar line to pay homage to archaeology’s greatest discovery. With our secret blend, we have endeavored to capture the spirit of ancient incense; “Senetjer” is the ancient Egyptian word for incense or “that which makes holy”. The box design is an exact replica of a storage box from the tomb itself. This cigar embodies life at Highclere in the era of the 5th Earl of Carnarvon, his love for cigars, and his passion for ancient Egypt.
This Foundation Highclere Castle Senetjer Perfecto cigar is made in Nicaragua. Outside, you'll find a 7th Priming Ecuadorian Habano wrapper. Inside, the binder is Brazilian Mata Fina, and the filler is Undisclosed. This is a Perfecto cigar with a length of 6.75 and a ring gauge of 52.
