A name fit for a King – or the Son of a King at least. Menelik – Son to King Soloman and Queen of Sheba – ruler of Ethiopia – whos name translates to Son of the Wise. If you are a fan of Nick Melillo and Foundation Cigars, it is not a stretch to see how their names and blends are intermingled.
Sporting a pigtail cap, the San Andres wrapper holds together a Jalapa Corojo 99 binder and a mixture of Nicaraguan tobaccos from Condega, Esteli and Jalapa. Full bodied and full of flavor – Menelik offers flavor notes of leather, oak, earth and hay with a solid peppery backbone.
Production is limited and the availability of these cigars get smaller each day.
