The two newest vitolas for Foundation Cigar Co.’s The Tabernacle Havana Seed CT No.142 have begun arriving at retailers, as Nicholas Melillo told halfwheel that he began sending out the first shipments last week, with more heading out this week.
Those are the 5 x 54 David and 5 x 58 Goliath, a pair of thick perfectos which have MSRPs of $12 and $14, respectively, and which will both be offered in 25-count boxes. The Tabernacle Havana Seed CT No.142 line, which debuted in 2018, features a wrapper grown in the Connecticut River Valley, with the specific seed varietal giving the line its name. The binder is a Mexican San Andrés leaf while the fillers come from Nicaragua’s Estelí and Jalapa regions along with Honduras’s Jamastran Valley. The cigars are made at Tabacalera AJ Fernandez Cigars de Nicaragua S.A.
If the names sound familiar, it is because Foundation Cigar Co. added the same two sizes to its original The Tabernacle line in October 2020.
