El Gueguense

by Foundation Cigar Company

Description

A wise choice.

If you’re anything like me, your first thought is how in the hell do you say this cigar’s name. It’s pronounced - el wah-when-say - meaning “the wise man,” and it’s also one of the oldest known Nicaraguan plays. El Gueguense is the debut blend for Foundation Cigar Company, which was begun by Nicholas Melillo after he left Drew Estate. The cigar’s packaging and bands pay tribute to the play and reflect Melillo’s love for Nicaragua.

El Gueguense is a Nicaraguan puro outfitted with a Corojo ’99 wrapper and binder, and a blend of Corojo and Criollo long-fillers from 2011 and 2012. The blend has been additionally aged in cedar before release and is an elegant, complex, and well-balanced cigar. Expect a full-bodied treat with your palate dancing to notes of cedar and spice with a touch of sweetness.

El Gueguense received an impressive 92-rating and Top 25 Cigars of 2016 honors. The review noted, "The combination of different varietals from diferent regions make this an interesting, tasty melange of Nicaraguan tobacco."

I wanted to order the Wise Man with the red band, but they were out of stock. So I thought these might be just as good. They were a big disappointment. I had trouble keeping it lit. It didn’t burn evenly. The taste started out good but got progressively worse.
