Foundation Charter Oak Connecticut

According to Nick Melillo, President of the Foundation Cigar Co., the Charter Oak Connecticut cigar is an homage to his home state of Connecticut. In addition, Melillo wanted to create a budget-conscious cigar designed to be enjoyed every day and for any occasion. The Charter Oak Connecticut surpasses this goal. The Charter Oak’s handsome Connecticut shade wrapper surrounds a Sumatran binder which envelops a carefully blended filler from the Jalapa and Estelí regions of Nicaragua.

Foundation Charter Oak Connecticut Grande 6 * 60
The Foundation Charter Oak Connecticut Grande is a wallet-friendly, mild bodied toro that is handmade in Nicaragua at the Tabacalera de AJ Fernandez. Its smooth, light brown USA Connecticut Shade wrapper drapes a Sumatra binder and a Nicaraguan filler. This mellow blend has a sweet cocoa and creamy flavor profile that is accented with peppery and spicy notes. The Charter Oak Connecticut looks, feels, and tastes like a loftier priced cigar, but at a very down-to-earth price.
