Foundry Rare Air ET-P2

Posted by Jack | in Foundry | on 30 Dec 2014 | at 12:34 PM | 1488 views

I have reviewed a few Foundry cigars over the past couple of years and they continue to surprise me.  Every cigar from their rather hush-hush catalog has been unique and enjoyable.  This year saw a slew of new releases from General Cigar's boutique arm, and the subject of this review is one of their best.  I am too anxious to talk, so let's get smoking.... Construction: So dark an oily you can see yourself in the wrapper leaf, slightly lumpy, with a few veins, the ET-P2 is actually a pretty cigar with a rustic feel.  Since the tobacco was grown from 1960 seed, that makes some sense. Pre-light Aroma and Draw: Out of the cellophane, I get a very powerful musty leather, malt, and minty... Continue reading »»

 


 

Foundry 1964 Blend Expect

Posted by Jack | in Foundry | on 10 Oct 2014 | at 12:01 PM | 1579 views

The year was 1964 - The Cleveland Browns were Superbowl champs, the Sharpie Marker was new, The Beatles were the biggest thing anywhere, and Goldfinger was in theaters.  The makers of Foundry cigars are offering up a taste of the past in their usual enigmatic way with their Past, Present, Future line.   And today, I am fortunate enough to be smoking their piece of the past.   I have admitted it before but I am a nut for anything vintage.   TV shows, music, movies, clothes, you name it.   So, needless to say, I am excited to see what the Past tastes like according to Foundry. Construction:  Kind of lumpy and mildly veiny with a nice soft toothiness to the milk chocolate colored... Continue reading »»

 


 

Foundry Elements Carbon

Posted by Jack | in Foundry | on 19 Apr 2014 | at 5:22 PM | 2643 views

Carbon.  The building block of all life.  Cigars as a way of life for many of us, so maybe the name has a deeper meaning?  Foundry Cigars has put some of the coolest and strangest ideas into their cigars over the past couple of years.  The steampunk series was unusual though plagued with wrapper explosions, and the Laboratories series West Orange was terrific.  The elements line is a rotating line based on the periodic table.  Thankfully, after reading this review you will agree, the Carbon is one of the full time releases they intend.  I have almost tried the Plutonium but the big 7 x 70 is a bit much for me.  The Carbon is just right at 60 and seeing as this was the...

Foundry W. Orange Pre-release

Posted by Jack | in Foundry | on 08 Aug 2013 | at 10:43 AM | 1839 views

Jordan at The Wharf just gave me what I consider my Birthday present from the store.  A fistful of new samples.  The one I selected first is a pre-release from the IPCPR this year.  The Foundry W. Orange.  Named for the town in New Jersey where Thomas Edison worked, the W. Orange is part of the War of Currents - The Laboratories line that Foundry cigars is adding to the brand.  They have a small batch series based on various inventions coming soon as well.  The core line contains a nifty metal gear to go along with the steampunk theme.  These new Lab-based ones will ship with a metal ring shaped like a fuse.  Should be loads of fun. Now, if you have read my... Continue reading »»

 


 

Foundry Talbot

Posted by Jack | in Foundry | on 04 Nov 2012 | at 2:33 PM | 1719 views

Shhhh....this cigar is top secret!  Okay, not really.  However, the binder and filler ingredients are undisclosed as of this review.  The Foundry is labeled a " Steampunk" homage with each size being named after a famous Steampunk personality like H.G. Wells, for example.  As soon as I walked into the humidor at The Market my eyes went right to the display of these cigars.  After some deliberation I selected the Talbot.  How did it smoke?  Let''s see.... Construction: The Talbot is a massive 60 ring gauge monster with few veins and a gorgeous wrapper that looks like African Cameroon although it isn't.  Coupled with the awesome presentation the Foundry brand really stands out in the crowd.  As you read the review you will notice a...
