I’m not sure what to exactly make of Foundry. The premise of it is pretty creative and the cigar looks very good. I’m just not sure how I feel about the gear ring thing and the half cellophane sleeve. The aesthetics are unique, interesting, crazy and odd all at the same time. Wasn’t there a Macanudo a few years ago that had some hefty ring that depending on the conditions caused problems? If the cigar was too wet you couldn’t get the band off, if it was too dry it would slide off too easily? Also not something I can easily transport in my travel humidor…unless I remove the gear first I guess. All in all it is definitely an interesting cigar with lots of creativity behind it. Once my palate recovers I look forward to giving it a try. I’m also interested in finding out why I should save these gears. I hope I don’t lose them in the abyss known as my change box. Time will tell…
