CigarCraig’s 12 Spectacular Days of Cigar Giveaways 2014 Day 8: Foundry Cigars

Happy Thursday everyone!  I have two days of work and a holiday party to get through this week then I have two weeks off to celebrate the holidays and try to get some things done around the house (including getting packages shipped and perhaps delivered). I’m really looking forward to the time off!  I smoked an Arandoza White Label robusto last night and it was really good, a little spice, great burn, a real winner. Speaking of winners, the winner of the box of Arandoza White Doble Coronas is Rich M! Please send me your shipping info so so I can get this out to you. It’s going to be a White Christmas for Rich (someone left that in a comment, well done!). Today we have another personal favorite of mine, so let’s get on with it!



Foundry Tobacco Company


Day 8 brings us an oldie but goodie!  Foundry Tobacco Company is a boutique within General Cigar Co., headed up by Michael Giannini. Their original release is the steam punk themed Foundry, which featured rarely used tobaccos, none of which come from the Dominican Republic, Honduras, Nicaragua or Mexico. The wrapper is an eight year old tobacco called H-47 Pleno Sol, developed by General Cigar. It’s a unique and complex cigar, and the Cayley is a unique shape. It’s a figurado listed at 6½” x 60 x 56 x 43.  This is a box of 24 cigars. Many have said this was a gimmicky cigar but I really love everything from the Foundry line, it’s different and innovative.  Many thanks to Victoria at General Cigar Co. for providing this excellent box of cigars.



All you have to do to enter is to leave a comment on that day’s post and if you like, in one sentence tell us what comes to mind when you think of Foundry Cigars.  It’s not a condition to win, but I’d like for the folks who make this all possible to come away with some consumer feedback.  Also, be sure to visit the links for each item. Comments on Facebook, Twitter, or anywhere else will not count, but feel free to spread the word!


Until tomorrow,

    I either think of the steam-punk Foundry, or Michael, and the cool names he comes up with. I especially like the name “wormhole”. I would love to get my chopper-covered fists on that box of steam-punks.
