General Cigar Foundry


General Cigar is proud to introduce FOUNDRY, a new boutique collection created to amplify the artistry and romanticism of premium cigars.

FOUNDRY is a stark juxtaposition between the old and the new.  This visually-arresting collection was inspired by the art form of “steampunk,” which is both a retrospective and futuristic interpretation of innovation.

FOUNDRY is the brainchild of Michael Giannini who led the team that created the breakthrough brand. “Innovation comes from many sources,” he notes. “It is a pleasure and an honor to be able to call upon our greatest resources: the collective talent of cigar masters, our expertise in tobacco cultivation, processing and blending and the creativity of our artisan cigar rollers and box makers to bring FOUNDRY to fruition.”

Through a groundbreaking approach previously unseen in the premium cigar category, FOUNDRY entices the premium cigar connoisseur to take a bold step back in time and a quantum leap into the future to envision the artistry of handmade cigars through the lens of unbridled innovation.

Visual considerations aside, FOUNDRY’s avant-garde approach extends to its masterfully balanced synthesis of flavors. Featuring an indulgent collection of five proprietary tobaccos from four different countries, each aged between three and six years, Foundry’s foundation is amplified through an eight year old wrapper developed by General Cigar. Called H-47 Pleno Sol, the lustrous wrapper imparts a deeply complex, layered smoking experience like no other.

The four-cigar collection is accessibly-priced, and will make its mark on tobacco retail starting in late-October. Foundry features these new cigars: Wells (6”x 50, SRP per cigar is $7.95); Lovelace (6 ¼ ” x 54, SRP per cigar is $8.45); Talbot (5” x 60, SRP per cigar is $8.95) and Cayley (6  ½” x 60 x 56 x 43, SRP per cigar is $9.45). Each frontmark is presented with a unique box design and features both a traditional paper band and a steampunk-inspired metal gear band.

Foundry is a product of General Cigar Co. Inc., a division of Scandinavian Tobacco Group, which manufactures and markets handcrafted cigars for the premium market.

    Like the pricing just wish cigar stores would honor them and nor charge 3 to 5 dollars more wich they do in Long Island, New York

  • irratebass

    This is one I am curious about, wouldn’t that band make it heavy?

  • Kevin

    Yes, it does make it heavy. However it is a unique cigar. The Vintage Maduro 97 and new Vintage 2006 have those metal bands on them that make them a little awkward but still unique for the occasional smoke.

    @090da9a66cb66b449a24251ad5aec2d0:disqus As a cigar store owner, I understand your frustration. However these prices are usually given by the company before state tax is includided in the purchase price. New York has a very high tax rate, and that is why it is so much more expensive than the official “retail” price.


    I think that the foundary cigar is a great smokr but,
    can you tell me why during the last 3 inches of the smoke the wraper starts to peel and un ravel?

    A real smooth, yet tasty smoke. So far, the only mid-priced cigar I’d happily buy a box of. As a matter of fact, I’m going to grab a box now.

    I’ve found that to usually be a hydration issue. Try bumping your humidor to 72-5% for a few days. If that doesn’t cure it, you might want to contact your vendor.
