I have yet to smoke a cigar by Foundation that I don’t love. That being said, I haven’t tried any of The Upsetters, but infused cigars aren’t really my thing.
Foundation Cigar Co. The Tabernacle Havana Seed CT No. 142 – First Third
Hickory, cocoa, milk chocolate, BBQ, cream
An inch down I have to touch up the burn, but after that things seem to be evening out. The ash is sturdy and just a bit flaky. The mouthfeel is slightly chalky which has me wanting a stout to pair it with.
Foundation Cigar Co. The Tabernacle Havana Seed CT No. 142 – Middle Third
Cocoa, maple syrup, macadamia nut, cherry
Had to touch up the burn again. The ash holds on a good two inches before needing to be tapped. Flavors are still complex and moving toward the sweet end of the spectrum.
Foundation Cigar Co. The Tabernacle Havana Seed CT No. 142 – Final Third
Maple syrup, macadamia nut, cherry, orange
Just as I enter the final third I need to relight. The sweet notes are still hitting strong and continue through the end.
Overall, this was an enjoyable smoke that has more sweetness than some of Nick's other blends. I generally reach for a smaller ring gauge with these, but my local shop only had the one. Still good stuff for sure.
