Foundation Cigar Company have announced Charter Oak Pegnataro-CT Shade and Pasquale-CT Broadleaf. The new blends serve as a tribute to Nicholas Melillo’s grandfathers.
“My love for handmade cigars exists only because of my grandfather’s. One was an avid CT Broadleaf smoker and the other loved CT shade. These blends are completely different than the core line of Charter Oak. They are richer and more complex.”
In a press release released today Nic Melilio described the two new releases as follows:
Charter Oak CT Broadleaf Pasquale is a cigar that revolves around the renowned Connecticut Broadleaf seed, resulting in a captivating Maduro wrapper with a dark, rich complexion. This full-bodied blend embraces the senses with deep, earthy undertones, balanced by notes of sweetness and strength. It is a bold and flavorful choice for those seeking an indulgent smoking experience with robust character.
In contrast, Charter Oak CT Shade Pegnataro features a golden-brown Connecticut Shade wrapper, exuding elegance and refinement. Despite its milder profile, this medium-bodied cigar showcases a depth of flavor that surprises the palate. With delicate hints of cedar, almond, and a subtle sweetness, Charter Oak CT Shade Pegnataro presents a harmonious balance that appeals to aficionados seeking a more nuanced and flavorful smoke.
“The Charter Oak core line would have been their everyday cigar and these new blends would be for the weekend or a special occasion.” shared Nicholas Melillo. “These blends are deeply personal to me, as they honor the legacies of my grandfathers. The CT Broadleaf and CT Shade wrappers represent their distinct personalities, allowing me to celebrate their individuality through exceptional cigars that bear their names.”
The “Charter Oak Pegnataro and Pasquale” cigars will be available at select retailers nationwide starting in early Fall 2023 and will be sold at the PCA industry trade show in Las Vegas come July 2023. Cigars will retail at $13.00 per cigar and $156 per 12 count boxes. This is a limited quarterly release of 500 boxes.
