This month Foundation Cigar Company is releasing a new house blend for Ligero Tobacco House in Buford, Georgia – home of the only Foundation Cigar branded lounge in the U.S.
“This project is long overdue and has been in the works for almost 2 years. The blend is very unique, elegant, and unlike anything I have worked on,” commented Nicholas Melillo, owner of Foundation Cigar Company.
The blend consists of a Habano Ecuador wrapper over a San Andres Mexican binder and fillers from Estelí, Jalapa, and Ometepe. The cigar comes in one size – a 6 1/4 x 46 Lonsdale. Pricing is set at $12 per cigar and $240 for a 20-count box.
“Nick definitely worked his magic with this blend… The aroma from the Habano wrapper and the flavor profile on this cigar was simply amazing,” added Adam Tirado, owner of Ligero and long-time friend of Melillo.
