The Tabernacle Toro Cigars were made to provide a steadfast and delectable smoke with a zeal that could only come from a genuinely passionate aficionado. Nick Melillo has spent years building his brand to showcase the natural flavors of Connecticut tobacco, and the Tabernacle is all the proof smokers need that he’s right. Constructed from a prime blend of Nicaraguan tobacco from AJ Fernandez’s own crop, all of it is cradled in a deep, abiding Maduro Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper. Lighting it up releases the perfectly balanced notes of cocoa, leather, salt, pepper, and toasted oak. At six inches, and a fifty-two ring gauge, this Toro is decadent fifty-minute smoke.
