It is Nick Melillo, in pursuit of perfection, for Tabernacle CT Havana Seed No. 142, he traveled home to the Connecticut River Valley to develop of this special Cuban seed wrapper. While many growers claim that their leaves are unlike any other, this varietal actually does stand alone. The extensive amount of oil produced by the tobacco plant requires a fermenting the leaf for a period of three years; once complete, it's paired with a Mexican San Andres binder and Nicaragua fillers to manifest into a spectacular result: nuances of creamy cedar, earth, and exotic spices are accented by sweet and savory pepper on the finish and retrohale.
Full-bodied, aromatic, and masterfully constructed, Tabernacle Connecticut is worthy of every penny. Scoop up a box today from Famous Smoke Shop!

This cigar surprised me ! Take your time and enjoy the whole cigar. Nice burn, easy draw and you will notice flavor profile changes from start to finish. Love this smoke. !!
65% ad these are 5*. Any higher and they lose their taste and have terrible burn issues. But when they are good, they are great!
Fantastic cigar. Full flavor, medium to full strength. Love the quality, construction, deep dark wrapper and thick beautiful plumes of smoke. One of my favorite cigars.
Tried this new version because I loved the original Tabernacle. I ll just say I still love the original Tabernacle. CT#142? Disappointed.
Great smoke. Not too strong, but full taste.
Very enjoyable smoke. After 2 boxes of cedar wrapped R&J were returned due to mold, I decided to splurge a little and buy a box of these. Great little stick with just over an hour of smoke time. Appearance was nice -- dark brown, toothy and oily with a great aroma. I m no aficionado but the flavors of this stick is not the same old flavor profile that so many premium sticks seem to now have. Although slight at times, I tasted some cocoa, a little coffee on the finish, a bready flavor I couldn t quite pinpoint and even a citrus that I also couldn t put my finger on as well as pepper spice. The sweetness went from a cocoa to a bit of a creme brulee as it progressed. I should point out that the sweetness was not to the level that I would call this a dessert stick. Strength was a solid medium to me with a full body and plenty of smoke output. Draw was a little snug throughout but not a problem. Wrapper was quite thick but still burned evenly. I did not need to relight or touch up at all. Overall very happy with this stick as it kept me interested. Hoping a little rest in the Humi will make it even better.
These high dollar sticks are the worst I have ever had. Constant plugging and extremely bitter. Thanks Insomniac for the You tube tip on this crap.
