Foundation Cigar may be one of the new kids on the block of premium cigars, but that shouldn’t scare you away. The newer cigar company was founded by Nicholas Melillo just over five years ago and has been producing some exceptional cigars since its launch. If that name sounds familiar, Nick was the man at Drew Estate responsible for sourcing the quality leaf used in Drew Estate’s traditional cigar offerings and implementing quality control standards that transformed his former employer into the behemoth it is today. He credits his passion for tobacco to his grandfather who gave him his 1st cigar when he was 18. From there, Nick devoured knowledge on tobacco and turned his passion into a career. With 20 years of experience at his back, he launched Foundation and quickly established a reputation for creating outstanding cigars under his own banner.

Foundation Cigar Co.’s Olmec is a tribute to the world’s first known cigar smokers, the Olmec civilization. The center of the Olmec empire was located in modern day San Andrés Tuxtla, Mexico. Today, some of the finest San Andrès Negro wrapper tobacco (one of the oldest seed varieties in the world) is grown there. Olmec cigars feature a blend of the finest Nicaraguan filler and binder tobacco along with this special wrapper leaf. Tasting notes include flavors of cacao, dark espresso, and pepper along with hints of charred woods, toasted breads, and a stone-fruit sweetness. This full flavored masterpiece is a fitting tribute to the original cigar smokers and testament to the blending skills of Nicholas Melillo.
