Foundry War Of Currents Shoreham Cigar Review

This 5.5×56 stick features a dark brown oily satin textured slightly toothy wrapper with minimal veins, tight invisible seams, triple cap, firm even pack and rich tobacco and pepper aroma. First light reveals a light draw with airy smoke showing mil-medium flavors of a slightly bitter tobacco and long finish. The first third quickly drops the bitterness going to a sweet slightly caramel oily nut with a gritty tobacco core, up to a medium body. Hitting the 1/2 way point just 20 minutes in the 2nd third adds a touch of cream to the draw and some pepper on the finish carrying over the other core flavors and going to a mild-medium body at most. Ending at 50 minutes the last third changes everything up, going to a medium-full body with a mild-medium strength showing a creamy textured nut and cinnamon on the draw followed by a long smooth finish of the same. Thank you very much to Foundry Cigars for providing this for review!

    Sounds ok I guess it would depend on price

    Sounds great! interesting cigar.
    the cennamon taste was dominant cennamon taste or just a lightly taste of cennamon?
    I realy want to find a cigar that have a dominant taste of cennamon from the beggining to the end.

    Great review Bryan!

    Really enjoyed the original foundry with the gear. Will be looking for this one.

  • phaedron

    What?! There’s no gear or cog or lever included? How am I going to finish my steam-powered robot?!

    • gtclark

      Ha! It’s a steam-punk clock, isn’t it? I can’t remember…

    • Derek

      The cog is used as a key to open the new Foundry humidor.

    Thanks dor another good review

  • lazyboy

    Thunderstorm??? Thought that was the construction noise from the dome being built. Either way, what a great name for a cigar. War of Currents. Don’t know what it means, but I like it.

  • Christopher

    Damn! That sounds like a nice cigar.

    First review I’ve been able to watch, with me being busy and broke for a while. Wanted to check this one out as I was pretty interested in the whole Foundry thing. This sounds ok, nothing amazing, but like a pretty pleasant smoke. Shame there’s no fun steampunk gimmick item with it. I liked the original thought about the line, it was fun and a good conversation starter. Not to mention I like the 3 I have sitting in my humidor as tiny little decoration.
