An ode to Nicaragua...

Pronounced el-wah-when-say, the initial release from Foundation Cigar Company helmed by former Drew Estate vice president Nicholas Melillo is a love song to Nicaragua. Meaning “the wise man,” El Gueguense is the oldest Nicaraguan play, and the bands of the cigar pay tribute to the theatrical work.

A Nicaragua puro, El Gueguense features a Corojo ’99 wrapper in the starring role. Rounding out the cast are vintage Nicaragua Corojo and Criollo long-leaves imparting a full-bodied flavor profile. Additional aging in cedar before its release, this blend is hearty and complex. Expect to be met with flavors of cedar, baking spice, dried fruit, pepper, espresso, and earthy tobacco notes. El Gueguense is a fantastic debut from Foundation Cigar Company and truly reflects the depth, richness, and complexity of Nicaraguan tobacco. If you’ve been searching for a perfect example of a Nicaraguan puro, El Gueguense will have you at hello.
