The Tabernacle by Foundation Cigar Company is a super premium cigar with a Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper and filler and binder tobaccos from Nicaragua. It's a fusion of flavors inspired by founder Nicholas Melillo's roots in the Connecticut River Valley as well as his work with Nicaragua's finest artisanal tobacco batches.
This cigar was blended at AJ Fernandez's factory in Esteli, Nicaragua, using some of the best tobacco Nick could find. This blend is made up of San Andreas Mexican binders and fillers from Honduras' Jamastran Valley, as well as Nicaragua's Esteli and Jalapa Valleys. The Tabernacle box explains how the cigar got its name. The artwork depicts Haile Selassie, the 225th King of Abyssinia, whose ancestors can be traced back to King Solomon and the Queen of Sheba. The term "tabernacle" refers to a container for the Ark of the Covenant."
