Foundation Highclere Castle Victorian cigars harken back to the very first cigars to be imported from Cuba into England in the Victorian era. The cigars are a follow up to the wildly popular Highclere Castle line that was inspired by the award-winning television drama Downtown Abbey. To emulate the style of cigars most popular during Victorian times, the blend features a Ecuadorian Habano wrapper atop binder and filler tobaccos from the Jalapa, Estelí, and Omtepe regions of Nicaragua. This Ecuadorian leaf is a habano varietal with a nice oily sheen and plenty of noticeable oils. To fully capture the era, the cigars are beautifully appointed to 20-count dress boxes that feature gorgeous Victorian artwork on both the boxes and the cigar bands. After lighting a Victorian Castle cigar, you’ll be greeted with a medium to full-bodied smoke that’s brimming with rich notes of chocolate, pepper, leather, oak, and a long- lasting creamy finish. Order a box from JR, and let us fill your humidor with these fabulous cigars from Foundation.
