Foundation Cigar Company is never one to shy away from its artistic presentations at IPCPR. This year’s display was no different, with the company using its Estelí-based ATOL Colectivo to showcase an all-new layout once more.

Foundation’s new offerings were lead by the highly anticipated Menelik brand, though there were a number of other tweaks, updates, and new entries to go along. Also showcased: Highclere Castle Victorian (maduro variant of original Highclere Castle cigar), The Tabernacle Havana Seed CT No. 142 Lancero, and updated packaging for the company’s infused The Upsetters lineup.

During Cigar Dojo’s interview with company owner, Nicholas Melillo, we presented Nick with his award for claiming the Dojo’s No. 1 Cigar of the Year for 2018, given to The Tabernacle Havana Seed CT No. 142.
