You may not know much about the Foundation Cigar Company right now, but you’re sure as heck going to want to find out after trying the phenomenal Charter Oak Connecticut Shade Grande cigar. After setting out on his own from Drew Estate and then stunning the world with the El Gueguense, Foundation founder Nicholas Melillo decided to honor his home state of Connecticut with a rich and creamy medium-bodied smoke coated in the only tobacco that would suffice: a flawless and golden Connecticut Shade. Named after a legendary tree that stood for centuries in Hartford as an icon of freedom, these affordable sticks are comprised of lush Nicaraguan filler, a spicy binder from Sumatra, and the aforementioned glorious wrapper.

Melillio has made perhaps the wisest of choices by having each and every Foundation Charter Oak Connecticut Shade Grande constructed at Tabacalera AJ Fernandez Cigars de Nicaragua, one of the highest-quality cigar factories on the planet. This means you can expect a level of craftmanship and smoking enjoyment far beyond that found in most other budget stogies. In prefect compliment to the sunny hue of each 6” X 60 vitola, the band is a simple black and white affair decorated with an image of its namesake monument. Thick smoke pours easily through the well-balanced longleaf at the core of each stick, at first ripe with dark chocolate and nutmeg before mellowing slightly with cedar and cream. Some toasted almond enters near the halfway mark, joined soon after by a flourish of spice to keep the palate in thrall all the way to the nub.

Priced for everyday enjoyment, you’ll still find a reason to mark special occasions with one of these delectable treats. Not just another one of the forgettable mild stogies that litter the tobacco landscape, a Foundation Charter Oak Connecticut Shade Grande cigar will be sought out again and again for their smooth, delightful character. Grab yourself a handful or a box today and get to having a grand old time.
