Foundation Cigar is shipping its new core line, Olmec, with retailers in its home state of Connecticut and the brand’s Georgia lounge, Ligero Tobacco House in Buford, getting first shipments, which then move along to the rest of the U.S.
Olmec cigars come in 12-count boxes and two wrapper shades, San Andrés Maduro and Claro. The sizes are the 5.5 x 48 Corona Gorda ($12.50), the 5 x 50 Robusto ($13.50), the 6 x 52 Toro ($14.50), the 6 x 60 Grande ($15.50) and the 7 x 52 Double Corona ($16).
The cigar is named after an early civilization in the tropical lowlands of Mexico.
Olmec is produced by AJ Fernandez in Nicaragua. Foundation has posted a video for the Olmec release.
