The Wise Man Maduro

by Foundation Cigar Company

Description

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."

Great flavor and a buttery finish. The construction, burn, and draw are excellent. Occasionally one or 2 cigars in the box will burn unevenly or have issues going out. But I always want to have some of these cigars in my humidor.

I almost never give a cigar a perfect score. I am 62yrs old and have puffing away since I was 21. This is one of the best cigars I have ever experienced. Smooth, organic with a wonderful smell, perfect construction/burn and delightful flavor. I never try to tell someone what I taste when I smoke a cigar as it is different for everyone. Cigar ratings are so inflated these days, it seems the only way a brand can survive is an absolutely meaningless score by so-called experts. In a sea of cigars flooded by mediocre wraps, this stands way out on the pack in a league with Opus X, Padron 1926 etc.
