Two years after the Highclere Castle Cigar release, the Foundation Cigar Company is preparing to present the Highclere Castle Victorian at the IPCPR in Las Vegas.
Highclere Castle Cigar was born from a collaboration between the Foundation Cigar Company and Highclere Castle Cigar Co. In the creation of the blend they wanted to recreate an flavor profile and a style to that of the fourteenth century. According to Highclere Castle tradition, it was usual, that after dinner they would retire to the library to enjoy a cigar, in combination with a whisky.
Highclere Castle Victorian reflects the flavor profile of the Victorian era, nougat, cedar, cinnamon and leather are the main notes to be found in the smoke, to which roasted coffee beans and spices are added. The new cigar is made up of a Ecuadorian Habano wrapper, a Brazilian Mata Fina binder over Nicaraguan fillers.
