Quick Cigar Review: Foundation | Menelik

Draw, burn, and construction were spot on and should be a mile marker what the quality of how a cigar should be rolled and constructed. The flavor profiles of chocolate, coffee, and leather appeared to be the dominate flavor profiles throughout the cigar which provided a nice relaxing experience. While I did not pair it with anything, a mocha latte or hot chocolate would pair wonderfully with this cigar as they would compliment each other immensely. Complexity was not in full force, however the profile was enjoyable enough to keep me happy throughout the duration of the session. Definitely something you should pick up if ever given the chance to attend a Foundation event!

“This was a not a flavor profile that fit my wheelhouse. Having said that, for someone who likes hazelnut and some black licorice this will be a decent cigar for them. I didn’t like the bitterness of the cigar but it did progress into a tartness that wasn’t distasteful to me. I would have thought the cigar would be stronger than it was given the types of flavors but it remained a medium to full, on the more medium side for me. A decent smoke for a specific palette.” –Diana (ArmyRN)

“I really enjoyed this cigar and would definitely add it to my routine repertoire. I’m not a big pepper fan but the amount of pepper in this cigar was perfect. Not overpowering but well balanced with the other flavors to create a cigar that consistently kept my attention but was also relaxing and smooth. This is a great cigar for either an intermediate or experienced cigar smoker.” -Diana (ArmyRN)

“I enjoyed this cigar very much. The woody and nutty flavors were fantastic and the performance showed off the high quality tobacco and expertise of the roller. The nice white ash was a great contrast to the dark wrapper and looked fantastic while smoking. I will pick up a few more of these in the future. Definitely recommend trying this cigar if you like a full flavored smoke with a good transition from start to finish. ” -Adam B. (Bushboy)

“Really good cigar. Solid core flavors, great initial flavor blast from the closed foot, and some interesting transitions along the way. There were a few minor construction issues, it wasn’t tremendously nuanced and it got a little flat toward the end, but there’s still good stuff happening here. I’d smoke a ton of these. ” -John I.
