Foundation Cigar - Highclere Castle Victorian Corona
Highclere Castle is best-known today as the backdrop for the phenomenon that has become Downtown Abbey, yet it also serves as the longtime official seat of the Earl of Carnarvon. Most famously, it was the 5th Earl of Carnarvon who sponsored the discovery of King Tut’s tomb. And so, Highclere Castle has indeed seen its fair share of treasures, yet none have perhaps brought as much sheer delight as the Highclere Castle Victorian series from the 8th Earl of Carnarvon, George Herbert and Foundation Cigar Company’s Nick Melillo.
The tantalizing Highclere Castle Victorian Corona is a crowd-pleasing 5 ½” x 46 cigar constructed around a superbly balanced mixture of Criollo and Corojo filler tobaccos from Nicaragua’s famed Esteli, Jalapa and Ometepe regions. These tobaccos are tucked inside of a Brazilian Mata Fina binder and luxuriously dark upper priming Ecuadorian Habano wrapper.
The Highclere Castle Victorian Corona’s tobaccos beautifully meld together to deliver a sumptuous full-bodied affair with plush cedar, pepper, earth, nougat, coffee, and spice flavors enveloping the senses from start to everlasting finish.
With an unparalleled lineage and prestige to spare, the Highclere Castle Victorian Corona is a cigar connoisseur’s dream that will prove an opulent start to the day and a most rewarding after-dinner companion. A sophisticated smoke for the most discerning of aficionados.
