Smoking Some Assorted Foundry and Michael Giannini Cigars

After hearing the news last week of Sam Leccia joining General Cigar Co., and his lines being absorbed into the Foundry Tobacco division, and having spent some time with Michael Giannini at the Rocky Mountain Cigar Festival, I decided  to spend the first part of the week, at least, smoking some cigars from the Foundry line. I started out Sunday afternoon with a Compounds, Elements and Musings Titanium Torpedo that I bought a few months back on clearance at a local shop.  I’m not kicking myself for not buying more of them, as I found it to be a really enjoyable cigar. The blend is listed simply as Nicaraguan and “Smoke it”, so there’s not a lot of information about this cigar. I can almost guarantee that the wrapper is a Connecticut shade wrapper of some sort, my guess is Ecuadoran.  This was a nice, smooth cigar, on the mild side, but loaded with creamy flavors. The construction was perfect, and it really was a nice, mellow, Sunday afternoon smoke. I don’t know how many of these are still in circulation, but these are not to be avoided!

No offense to Giannini because he seams to be a great guy but I am not a fan of his smokes at all. I have tried 3 of the elements and his first blends from Foundry and didnt like any of them at all. I think his concept is kinda cool but I want my Nica tobacco or Cuban tobacco....I dont want to smoke something that has never been used before lol Kinda weird.
