Foundation Cigar Company is adding a Habano version of it’s Charter Oak line. The original launch of the Charter Oak came in two blends, Connecticut Shade and Connecticut Broadleaf. The line is value priced, but has always been regarded as one of the best inexpensive cigars on the market.
The bands and packing will look very similar to the original featuring the same historic 600-year-old oak central to Connecticut’s legacy of independence and industry. Unique to the Habano blend will be a warm, honey colored box and black corner label. The Habano will also come in the same five sizes in 20 count boxes, but will see the addition of a Torpedo vitola. The original sizes are: Petite Corona – 5 ¼ x 42, Rothschild – 4 ½ x 50, Lonsdale – 6 ¼ x 46, Toro – 6 x 52, and Grande – 6 x 60. The new Torpedo measures 6 x 52. The new torpedo size will come in boxes of 50, not 20.
“There’s nothing like a 50-count cabinet—or a 6×52 Torpedo! Why not put them together in one beautiful package?” – said founder Nicholas Melillo.
“I am happy to have been able to blend a beautiful Habano wrapper into an expansion of the Charter Oak line, filling the profile gap between the CT Shade and the CT Broadleaf,” said Melillo. “This is a medium-bodied, spicy blend with amazing flavor at a great value.”
