Foundation Cigar Company, a distinguished name in the cigar industry, proudly presents its latest masterpiece, The Tabernacle Knight Commander, 6 x 3/4 x 52 Perfecto with a Connecticut  Broadleaf Wrapper. Crafted with unparalleled expertise and utilizing the finest premium  tobacco, this exceptional cigar pays homage to the rich Ethiopian heritage and embodies the  spirit of philanthropy.

The inspiration behind Tabernacle Knight Commander derives from a prestigious honour the Ethiopian Crown Council bestowed upon Nicholas Melillo, owner of Foundation Cigar Company. Melillo was humbled to receive the title of Knight Commander of The Ethiopian Star of Honora. The Order was established by Emperor Menelik in 1889 as an order of Knighthood of the Ethiopian Empire to foreign and domestic civilian and military officials and individuals for service to the country. It is with great pride and reverence that the Tabernacle Knight Commander pays tribute to this noble accolade.

Setting Tabernacle Knight Commander apart from the rest is its noble purpose. Foundation Cigar Company has pledged to donate all proceeds from the sales of this remarkable cigar to Ethiopian Charities. The brand aims to contribute to various philanthropic endeavours through this initiative, from scholarships to rebuilding churches.

Nicholas Melillo, the owner of Foundation Cigar Company, remarked, “Receiving the Ethiopian Star of Honora is an extraordinary privilege and an honour of a lifetime. The Knight Commander vitola is my tribute to this esteemed recognition, and I am proud that 100% of all wholesale  proceeds will be contributed directly to charity, making a meaningful difference in the lives of  Ethiopians.”

Tabernacle Knight Commander is meticulously handcrafted, boasting a premium blend of  tobaccos from the world’s most renowned growing regions. Encased in a luscious Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper, the cigar features a San Andrés Mexican Binder and carefully selected fillers  from Estelí and Jalapa, Nicaragua. The cigars have been aged 15 months in cedar before being packed to be shipped. Knight Commander will be introduced at the PCA trade show in Las Vegas and will begin shipping to cigar shops this fall. This cigar will be a limited yearly release of 700 boxes every fall.
