Foundation Cigar Company originally released Tabernacle Havana Seed #142 at last year’s IPCPR Show. Offered in four sizes—Toro (6 x 42), Robusto (5 x 50), Corona (5 1/4 x 46) and Double Corona (7 x 54)—the cigars garnered a quick following from consumers who savored its unique combination of spicy and sweet notes and rich flavor.
Foundation Cigar Company is following up on Tabernacle Havana Seed #142’s success by introducing a Lancero (7 x 40) to the line at this year’s IPCPR Show. With its thinner ring gauge and higher wrapper-to-blend ratio, the Tabernacle Havana Seed #142 Lancero highlights the rich oils and wide range of flavors that Connecticut-grown Havana Seed #142 tobacco offers smokers.
“In some circles, it is believed that Lanceros are the best way to truly taste the cigar’s terroir,” says Nicholas Melillo, the founder of Foundation Cigar Company, in a press release announcing the new Lancero size. “As they grow in popularity stateside, Lanceros are increasingly becoming known as the cigar size that cigarmakers smoke themselves.”
