Charter Oak Broadleaf Maduro Cigars were created to exemplify everything incredible about its blender’s home, showcasing the wide varieties it can produce. Brand founder Nick Melillo was inspired by a legendary tree in his home state, the Charter Oak. The Charter Oak was used as a peace symbol by Native Americans before its strategic position turned it into an icon of the American Revolution. As a Connecticut Native, Melillo wanted to spread the word about the state’s sumptuous tobacco far and wide. The result was the Broadleaf Maduro, a ripe display of lavish premium tastes. Built using heartfelt Nicaraguan tobacco from AJ Fernandez’s personal fields, Charter Oak is highlighted by its distinctive Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper that seals in flavor while adding an extra bite of toasted notes. Taste for yourself and see why it’s been lauded by critics everywhere!
