Charter Oak is the brainchild of Nick Melillo, Drew Estate’s former head blender and one of the geniuses behind the acclaimed Liga Privada cigars (the other being Steve Saka). Nick started the Foundation Cigar Company in 2015, producing award-winning super-premium blends such as El Gueguense and The Tabernacle. He then decided to create an affordable cigar sharing the same characteristics as his top-of-the-line smokes. He named the brand Charter Oak after Connecticut’s historic tree, an early symbol of independence.
The Charter Oak Connecticut Broadleaf uses a dark, toothy broadleaf maduro wrapper grown especially for Nick by the Thrall family, one of the oldest tobacco growers in the Connecticut River Valley. It covers a Nicaraguan Habano binder and Nicaraguan filler leaves from Esteli and Jalapa, which are expertly rolled by the AJ Fernandez factory in Esteli, Nicaragua. The result is a very flavourful, balanced and slow-burning medium-full-bodied cigar with a sweet, lingering finish.

Video Review: Cigar Federation
The Charter Oak Connecticut Broadleaf is a ruggedly handsome looking cigar with a closed foot. The smoke is thick and creamy with a nice molasses sweetness. It begins with a blast of black pepper, which fades to be followed by distinct flavours of plums, raisins, dark chocolate, nuts, cedar, earth and baking spices, with espresso and leather joining in about halfway. If you like Liga Privadas and your wallet doesn’t, this should be a permanent fixture in your humidor. As the Allen brothers say in their review, “the Charter Oak Maduro is arguably the best value cigar on the market!“
