Foundation Cigar Company: The Tabernacle Broadleaf Robusto Cigars

Product Number: 007-847-0022

Hailing from Connecticut and owning a 50-acre tobacco farm there, Foundation's founder and master blender, Nicholas Melillo, has a passion for Connecticut Broadleaf. Melillo wanted a blend that showcased this special leaf, leading to the creation of The Tabernacle.

The Tabernacle cigars feature a blend of fillers from Jamastrán, Honduras and the Nicaraguan regions of the Jalapa and Estelí, all wrapped in Connecticut Broadleaf and a Mexican San Andrés binder — another leaf that Melillo adores and an old variety that predates Cuban seed.

Boasting a bold profile with balanced flavors of earth, meat, fruity sweetness, and subtle hints of coffee and chocolate, Foundation's The Tabernacle displays bands that bespeak the line's name: The artwork depicts Haile Selassie, the 225th King of Abyssinia. Selassie's ancestry dates back to King Solomon, who built the temple that safeguarded the Ark of the Covenant. Like that ancient edifice, The Tabernacle houses Melillo's Connecticut leaf — a leaf that, for him "is something sacred."

The room notes and cold draw were intoxicatingly good, but unfortunately the rest of the experience is something I will not be repeating, with this stick, anytime soon.

Well constructed, a tight pack interfered with the draw during the last third, flavors were sweet tobacco and graham cracker with earth and wood on the draw with a subtle pepper finish, this all comes together in a sublime smoke. The last third is Ca... Read More

The Tabernacle is by far my favorite Stogie. It’s the Chocolate Cake of the cigar world. It’s packed full of flavor.
