Foundation Cigars offer limited quarterly production sizes to specially select tobacconists worldwide. These sizes come in unique boxes and packaging to compliment the core portfolio. In addition, they are allocated to accounts that support all of Foundation’s brands. The latest line extensions are the Macho Raton perfectos in both the El Güegüense Corojo and Wise Man Maduro. Medium to full-bodied blends, these short perfectos pack a ton of flavor. They are offered in 12ct boxes.
The newest to the Menelik line is the 6×52 Toro. Additionally, Menelik has a San Andres Wrapper, Corojo 99 binder & Nicaragua filler. The Menelik also translates to son of the Wise Man. The biblical victory of David over Goliath has particular resonance with Ethiopia’s proud history as the only African nation to fend off colonial conquest. The Tabernacle blend delivers depth, complexity, body, and flavor in these two sizes.
"I wanted to create a unique blend in limited quantities for those tobacconists that support all of our brands. It started as an event-only blend and has now become its own line." Nicholas Melillo, owner and master blender crafted the new Menelik Toro in a similar limited production.
