The Foundation Upsetters Original Rude Boy pays homage to Jamaica's history and the term "rude boy," which evolved to symbolize the rebellious spirit of Jamaica's newly-independent youth. These individuals, often from impoverished neighborhoods, took matters into their own hands, challenging corrupt power structures or channeling their energy into reggae music, which served as both entertainment and a call to societal awakening. This cigar, a robust 6x60 with a rich Maduro wrapper, features a unique blend of Nicaraguan filler and Jamaican cow tongue tobacco, infused using Caribbean atmospheric herbs. While the infusion process remains a mystery, Nick Melillo, the owner of Foundation Cigars, may have gleaned techniques from his time at Drew Estate, known for ACID cigars. The result is a cigar with flavors reminiscent of Nicaraguan tobacco, Turkish coffee, caramel, and allspice—a captivating mix for those seeking something distinctive in their humidors. Jamaica's history of tobacco cultivation and cigar-making is revived through Foundation's Upsetters cigars, showcasing an ancient Jamaican tobacco strain. The Original Rude Boy is the perfect messenger for this flavorful journey. Bless up!
