Brand owner Nicholas Melillo’s latest release, called Foundation Olmec, is a line of premium cigars that pays tribute to Mexico and its ancient Mesoamerican people, who once inhabited the San Andrés Valley in Veracruz, where cigar tobacco is grown. As such, the Olmec blend uses two different Mexican San Andrés wrappers, one blend uses a lighter claro wrapper and the other a darker and bolder maduro varietal. Both versions are produced by famous cigarmaker AJ Fernandez using the finest fully aged Nicaraguan binder and long filler tobacco from the country’s fertile Estelí and Jalapa Valley regions. The blend delivers a full-bodied smoking experience with rich flavors of leather, espresso, spice, chocolate, cream, and more, depending on which wrapper style that you choose. Order your favorite blend online from JR Cigar in boxes of 12, and enjoy a smooth and savory smoke that’s laced with the best tobacco that Mexico and Nicaragua have to offer.
