Historical Roots

Drawing inspiration from biblical tales, the David and Goliath cigars mirror the story of an underdog’s triumph over an overpowering force. Just as David took on Goliath with just a sling and a stone, Foundation Cigar Co. reminds us of the importance of belief, perseverance, and the beauty of overcoming challenges. The cigar itself is a manifestation of this spirit, showcasing a blend of carefully selected tobaccos and impeccable construction.

Blend Profile

The David and Goliath cigars share a blend but vary in their vitolas, allowing for unique smoking experiences:

- Wrapper: Connecticut Broadleaf

- Binder:Mexican San Andrés

- Filler: Nicaraguan and Honduran tobaccos

This combination brings forth a balanced yet intense flavor profile that is robust and captivating. The Connecticut Broadleaf, known for its earthy and chocolatey notes, pairs exquisitely with the spicy undertones of the Nicaraguan filler. The Mexican San Andrés binder adds a touch of sweetness that complements the profile.
