Two years after the launch of the Highclere Castle line, a collaboration between Foundation Cigars and Highclere Castle, in 2017, the new Highclere Castle Victorian was introduced.
The blend for the Victorian has been updated to be a stronger version of the regular line. It comes in the same five size.
The wrapper is of a Colorado Maduro shade, that has some tooth to it. Construction is even, with a perfect draw.

Highclere Castle Victorian Corona: the cold draw brings notes of leather, wood and pepper to the palate. The opening is peppery, mainly black pepper, with wood and leather following right behind it.
Overall, the Highclere Castle Victorian Corona is not just a stronger version of the regular Highclere Castle. It takes the similar flavor profile of the regular line and ampes it up, while still remaining a well balanced and complex smoke with a flawless construction.
