Highclere Castle Victorian Toro
If you won’t admit to having watched the period drama “Downton Abbey,” then at least fess up to sitting through an episode or two with your significant other. Highclere Castle serves as the setting for the PBS television series, and the estate is owned by George Carnarvon, the eighth Earl of Carnarvon, who commissioned Foundation Cigar Co. to create a cigar named after his breathtaking English country home. All Highclere Castle cigars are made by A.J. Fernandez. The Victorian is a darker, stronger sequel to the original, and the Toro size, with its dignified espresso character and regal hints of caramel, black pepper and graham cracker, proves itself to be a cigar fit for a lord.
