Highclere Castle Victorian Robusto Single Cigar



2 in stock


Meet Lord Carnarvon, Adam Von Gootkin, and Nicholas Melillo, the brilliant minds behind Foundation Cigar Company. Driven by their passion for history, attention to detail, and expansive vision, they embarked on a fascinating mission inspired by the Highclere Castle.

Their seemingly impossible goal was refreshingly simple: recreate the 19th-century cigars savored at Highclere Castle. Think of it as capturing the essence of the very first Cuban cigars enjoyed in Great Britain—the kind the 4th Earl celebrated with after founding Canada, the ones young Edward VII indulged in during his visits, and the cigars that graced the lips of royalty, aristocrats, politicians, artists, and musicians during the Victorian era.

The Highclere Castle Victorian is the delightful result of this noble quest.

With a stellar 93 rating from Cigar Aficionado and a spot in their top 25 of 2020, the Highclere Castle Victorian is a uniquely crafted, delicately balanced, and refined smoke. Picture the finest upper priming Ecuadorian Habano wrapper, elegantly presented in a rosado colorado shade, a rare Mata Fina binder, and fillers featuring astounding corojo and criollo from Nicaragua’s Estelli, Jalapa, and Ometepe. This masterpiece from Nick Melillo of Foundation Cigar Company pays homage to the exacting standards of Highclere Castle Cigar. It's not just a smoke; it's a groundbreaking blend that captures the spirit of an era.
