Foundation Cigars Charter Oak Toro
An homage to the rich history of Foundation Cigar Company's home state of Connecticut, and to Nicholas Melillo's grandfather who, while earning a modest salary at the Winchester Factory after WWII, smoked exclusively Connecticut Broadleaf Cigars.
Long before Dutch settlers landed on American shores, the Native Americans cultivated tobacco and held councils beneath the massive branches of the Charter Oak tree. It is a sacred tree and is a long-standing symbol of independence. Charter Oak cigars hail from the same fertile valley in Connecticut that native son Nicholas Melillo was born and raised in, and through this ancient lineage these cigars preserve and celebrate that lesser-known element, that sacred element, of Connecticut tobacco's rich and storied history.
