Charter Oak

Sign the charter

No matter how far we might stray from it, home will always be an important anchor for all of us. Foundation’s Charter Oak features tobaccos grown in the Connecticut River Valley of founder Nick Melillo’s home state. The name itself pays respect to a historically significant tree near which Native Americans would congregate and grow tobacco of their own.

But the respect doesn’t stop there as Melillo also honors his grandfather, a WWII vet who enjoyed Connecticut tobaccos with Charter Oak. Made of a Connecticut Shade wrapper and fillers from the Jalapa and Estelí regions of Nicaragua, the Charter Oak elicits a creamy flavor accented with chocolate, and hints of roasted nuts and pepper.

Worth 3x the price
Best stick for the price, you literally cannot beat the price on these. Fantastic smoke, both the Connecticut and broad leaf varieties are just great flavor.

Charter Oak: The best keept sectret in cigar enjoyment.
I stumbled on this magnificent smoke at a cigar shop in Key West while vacationing in the Florida Keys this past summer. I asked for a robust 60 ring Maduro with an edge and a smooth finish. The gar doesn't bite and has a strong hint of oak (not surprising) and a hint of mesquite along with a smoky feel. Great when barbequing and campfires. A perfect match at an affordable price. Also comes in a nice wooden box. My "go to" gar! My trip to the Keys payed off in more ways than one.

Charter Oak hits a home run. And out of the park at that!
This very nice offering from the good folks at 'Charter Oak' has at least one new fan. Me! The initial bitterness of the Connecticut wrapper gives way to a nice light sweetness on the lips as well as a light leather feel in the mouth. The spice does not kick in until about 1/4 of the way into the cigar. Some woody under tones are present with light cocoa bitterness as well as some pepper. This is a cigar that will satisfy any medium cigar smokers taste and would make a great, next step up for the beginner cigar smoker wanting something a little stronger in taste. Not over powering in any one way. Very well balanced. As I write this review I am having one of these cigars and I am now down to the last 1/4. It is still very pleasant with no bitterness. It burns nice and even with no runners. This is a 'Nubber' ladies and gentlemen, and a very nice one at that. Well done 'Charter Oak'. High marks indeed.
