The Wise Man Maduro

95-Rated: #3 Cigar of 2018

A Most Wise Decision

If there’s two things that Foundation Cigar Co. founder Nick Melillo loves in this world, its premium cigars and Scrabble. Well, the second one is just a guess. But when you name a cigar something like “Gueguense Maduro,” I’ve gotta assume you have a love of words. Spanish for “The Wise Man,” Gueguense is actually pronounced similar to “way-when-say.” But enough about that, let’s talk tobacco. 

The wrapper leaf here is a toothy beast, utilizing a San Andres Mexican Maduro wrapper to the fullest extent. Melillo selected this leaf specifically to create a line that offered a whole different level of complexity, and he most certainly achieves that goal. Lighting up The Wise Man Maduro, you’ll find sharp notes of black pepper, soft cocoa, and rich coffee. If you’re a fan of rich maduros, you better try Wise Man Maduro today. 

The Wise Man Maduro has earned an impressive 95-point rating and was named the #3 Cigar of 2018, noting "It’s a flavorful blend that oscillates between the sweet and the savory. Cocoa and vanilla notes, for example, play off the tobacco’s meaty, beef-stock qualities, all integrated by an ever-present earthiness."

Good but strong.
Fantastic taste, burn, and draw. But beware... I hit the final 3rd and had to eat some candy and lay down for about 10 minutes. It is a strong cigar.

Stronger than expected/reported
I'm ave an affinity for maduros so it was a no brainer that I chose THIS version over the other wrapper. Ok, now this stick is 'graded/rated' as a MEDIUM flavor/intensity but to ME, while quite enjoyable, DEFINITELY was more than a BUT stronger than a medium. Lots of flavor, nice burn, plumes of smoke but (and maybe this was in part due to the fact that it was my FIRST CIGAR of the day, and a little EARLIER than I tend to smoke) it was EASILY a full flavor TO ME. Again, not a bad choice by any means but IF I try one again, I'll probably make it an EVENING SMOKE and pair it with some club soda or dark coffee.

You owe it to yourself to try this cigar!
A Christmas gift from my favorite oldest daughter. My first try of this brand and it definitely will not be the last. I don’t have enough superlatives to do this cigar justice. Try will not be disappointed. Wow...just wow.
