El Gueguense or “The Wise Man” is the debut cigar and initial line blended under Master Cigar Maker Nicholas Melillo for Foundation Cigar Company. A true Nicaraguan puro, each bale of tobacco that goes into this cigar is hand selected by Melillo with the filler leaves coming form a special vintage crop from years 2011 and 2012. Melillo is personally overseeing production at the Tobacco Valle de Jalapa (TABSA) facility with production being limited to 225 units per day. El Gueguensa is aged in cedar humidors for 30 days before being shipped from Nicaragua ensuring The Wise Man honors the Nicaraguan people, land, and culture.
El Gueguense is the ultimate homage to the country of Nicaragua: named after a prominent Nicaraguan folk dance with packaging that reflects the indigenous art and symbolism of the culture.
Evenly balanced with notes of cedar and spice.
