Foundation Cigars The Tabernacle

Foundation Cigars The Tabernacle

Anthony’s Cigar Emporium is getting the Foundation Cigars The Tabernacle.  The Foundation Cigars The Tabernacle is Foundation Cigar Company’s newest super premium cigar, boasting a Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper and some of Nicaragua’s finest fillers. It is a combination of tastes that calls on founder Nicholas Melillo’s roots in the Connecticut River Valley and also his work with the finest artisanal tobacco batches in Nicaragua. “I want to show my love for Connecticut Broadleaf,” says Melillo. “I was born in New Haven where, at the turn of the century, there were many cigar factories.” Beneath the Connecticut Broadlef wrapper, The Tabernacle uses a San Andreas Mexico binder and filler from Jamastran Valley in Honduras and the Esteli and Jalapa Valley in Nicaragua.

Also wanting to continue showcasing the flavors of northern Nicaragua, Melillo blended The Tabernacle at AJ Fernandez’s factory in Estelí. “AJ grows some of his tobacco on the farm, La Soledad, where I lived on when I first moved to Estelí in 2003. I know firsthand that AJ’s farm is blessed with the perfect location for growing filler tobaccos. He has incredible tobacco inventories and gave me full access to some of his best leaf for this project.”

The Foundation Cigars The Tabernacle box tells the story of the cigar’s name. The artwork features an image of none other than Haile Selassie, 225th King of Abyssinia, whose lineage traces directly to King Solomon and the Queen of Sheba. The reference to “tabernacle” is as a container for the Ark of the Covenant.” The Tabernacle cigars are rolled in Nicaragua at Tabacos Valle de Jalapa S.A. (TABSA).

 

 

Winston Churchill The Late Hour

Winston Churchill The Late Hour – Arriving Soon!

Anthony’s Cigar Emporium, a Davidoff Appointed Merchant, has leaned that the new Winston Churchill The Late Hour is arriving soon.

Davidoff has amped up its popular Winston Churchill blend by adding Nicaraguan Condega tobaccos that are fermented six months in single malt Sacotch whisky barrels. The new blend is called Winston Churchill The Late Hour. The Winston Churchill The Late Hour has a shiny and oily Habano Ecuador wrapper, and Nicaraguan filler tobaccos that are grown in the mineral rich volcanic soils of Condega and Estelì, adding spiciness and depth of character to the cigar.

The Nicaraguan Condega Visus tobaccos are aged in Scotch single malt whisky casks and give a mysterious sweetness and depth of flavor. The leaves are firmly pressed inside the casks. As the temperature in the closed casks rises, the tobacco enters a fermentation process. For the next six months the tobacco absorbs the aromas of the cask and whisky. The cask aging is responsible for the sweet tones and the full flavor.

The Nicaraguan (Estelì Visus and Condega Visus) and Dominican (San Vicente Mejorado Visus, Piloto Seco and Olor Visus) filler tobaccos, the dark Mexican San Andrés binder, combined with the dark chocolate wrapper, provide very complex and robust flavors in the Winston Churchill The Late Hour. The Late Hour’s aromas tantalize the palate with varying layers of black pepper, dark coffee, sweetness, old leather, wood and spiciness.

Davidoff Winston Churchill The Late Hour are packaged in 20 count black boxes.
