From Foundation Cigars, makers of the 92-rated Wiseman Maduro, Highclere Castle cigars were created by former Drew Estate blend-smith Nicholas Melillo to pay tribute to the fine handmades enjoyed at the historic English castle during the 19th and early 20th centuries.
These brilliant medium-bodied morsels are handcrafted in Esteli, Nicaragua using
Smooth and flavorful Connecticut Shade wrappers over a dark Brazilian binder, Criollo and Corojo tobaccos from the volcanic soils of the Jalapa Valley, and an exclusive hybrid varietal known as Nicadán. The resulting smoke is exceptionally creamy and elegant, bursting with tones of pepper, citrus, leather and fireplace.
This quite possibly might be the first release to excite both lovers of the greatest cigars available and fans of the hit television series Downton Abbey. If you don’t know the show (which uses Highclere Castle as its backdrop), no worries - all you really need to know is that this is another tasty home-run hit from the one they call “Nick-R-Agua.”
