The Tabernacle is a dark, Connecticut broadleaf cigar made in Nicaragua at A.J. Fernandez's namesake factory Tabacalera A.J. Fernandez Cigars de Nicaragua. Under the broadleaf wrapper is a Mexican San Andrés binder and filler tobaccos from Honduras and Nicaragua, most notably tobacco from La Soledad, a farm in Nicaragua owned by Fernandez. The packaging for The Tabernacle is emblazoned with an image of Haile Selassie, the 225th emperor of Ethiopia (and regarded as a deity by the Rastafari movement). In 2018, brand owner Nick Melillo launched The Tabernacle Havana Seed CT #142, a line extension that wears a different wrapper leaf grown in the Connecticut River Valley.
