Quick Smoke: Charter Oak CT Shade Rothchild

29 Jan 2017

Each Saturday and Sunday we’ll post a Quick Smoke: not quite a full review, just our brief verdict on a single cigar of “buy,” “hold,” or “sell.”

Charter-Oak-CT-Shade - 1

In 2016, Nicholas Melillo’s Foundation Cigar Co. expanded beyond its debut offering. Of the new releases, most of the attention (predictably, given Melillo’s history with Drew Estate) was paid to the Broadleaf-wrapped offerings, particularly the premium-priced Tabernacle. More under-the-radar was the Connecticut shade-wrapped version of the value-oriented Charter Oak brand. The Rothchild (4.5 x 50) features classic medium-bodied flavors with cream and roasted notes. Maybe not the most complex cigar, but it’s well-constructed, balanced, and priced right ($4.50).

Verdict = Buy.
