Foundation The Tabernacle

Description

Dark, decadent, and super delicious

Like many of us, Foundation Cigar Co. Founder Nick Melillo has a strong connection to his home - in his case, that’s Connecticut. Which means, he has fondness for Connecticut tobaccos - especially the Broadleaf variety. He went biblical with his latest release, The Tabernacle and blended a seriously epic cigar.

Crafted at AJ Fernandez’s La Soledad farm in Estelí, Nicaragua, Tabernacle is dressed in dark, oily Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper. Beneath the sheets, you’ll find fillers from Estelí and Jalapa Valley. Deep and hearty notes of cocoa, leather, and black pepper make this cigar a divine offering from Foundation, with all the strength you'd expect from an AJ blend. 

The Tabernacle recently earned a well-deserved 90-rating, noting, "It offers notes of rich woods, cocoa, and a hint of salt and pepper. The finish is long and sweet."

One of my favorite cigars. Full bodied with a hint of salt and pepper spiciness. Great weekend (or any day) cigar while relaxing with a fine glass of scotch.

I first smoked a Tabernacle at a cigar shop in Huntsville Alabama. The tobacconist there recommended it. I came home and ordered a box from CI. If you like a rich cigar with flavors of dried raisins, and baking spices then this is the one! The smoke is creamy with a hint of vanilla. This is not an infused cigar. I’m second thought you shouldn’t buy them. Just leave them for me. John D, WV

This is really a very good pick. Well rolled, perfect burn. Right there with any liga series for less.

Second box is on it's way. Highly recommend the Lancero. The extra flavor it provides from the wrapper is something that smacks your taste buds with complexity

Excellent construction, slow even burn to the nub without heating up. Definitely a cigar to smoke when you have time to truly enjoy it.

By way of analogy, a normal cigar is to wine, as this Tabernacle is to whiskey.

One of my new favorites. I was a huge fan of the Liga #9 which seems to now be missing something. I guess I have found it with the Tabernacle Toro.

Tabs and Tabs CT-142 of ANY vitola ... and the elusive Tab Davids & Tab Goliaths - I can count on these every time for a most enjoyable smoke.

I’m a fan of the Tabernacle Lancero, having been a Tabernacle fan for years. The Lancero is more flavorful smoke that the double corona which had been my go to evening smoke when I wanted a full bodied smoke, now it looks like I’ll be keeping 3 boxes of Tabernacles in the humidor, and save the Lancero for when I want full flavor without punch of a larger ringed cigar.

If you like Liga #9, you'll love this cigar. Nice tight construction with a consistent draw, and dynamite flavors! I get pepper, spice, a little early, and maybe a touch of chocolate or cocoa.

I rarely give a cigar a 5 star review but this cigar deserves it. It’s an extremely well-made cigar with lots of complex flavors and a perfect construction. While it’s not a cheap cigar, it’s definitely worth the price. I’ve been smoking cigars for 30 years and The Tabernacle is one I will keep smoking for years.

Really great smoke. Make sure you have plenty of time to enjoy. Very smooth and flavorful. Had to knock off a star for 1/3 rd of the sticks in the entire box were cracked. Looked like someone dropped the box causing the damage (before it was packaged to be shipped - no signs of damage to cardboard box that it was shipped in). Shame on the QC guy that let it slide.
