The Tabernacle is Foundation Cigar Company’s newest super premium cigar, boasting a Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper and some of Nicaragua’s finest fillers. On the outside, this cigar uses a CT Broadleaf wrapper, selected by Nick Melillo for this project two years ago. The Tabernacle also uses a San Andreas Mexico binder and filler from Jamastran Valley in Honduras, plus the Esteli and Jalapa Valley in Nicaragua.
“They call me ‘Chief of the Broadleafs’ for a reason,” Melillo says. “I have been working closely with farmers in Connecticut for over ten years. Broadleaf is more than tobacco for me. It is something sacred.”
