08 Sep Menelik by Foundation Gets A Second Size
When Nick Melillo, owner of Foundation Cigar Co., introduced Menelik in 2016, it was as a single Robusto size available only at special events, but in 2019 he turned the cigar into a limited-production release. Now, it’s coming in a Toro size, which will be available for preorder next month at the PCA trade show.
Topped with a pigtail cap, the softly box-pressed Menelik Toro measures 6 inches by 52 ring gauge. The blend consists of a dark, San Andrés wrapper from Mexico, a Nicaraguan Corojo ’99 binder from Jalapa and a mix of Nicaraguan fillers from Estelí, Condega and Jalapa.
