El Gueguense (el-wah-when-say) is the initial offering from the Foundation Cigar Company, created by Nicholas Melillo after leaving Drew Estate, and what a way to get started.
El Gueguense means "the wise man", which is the oldest Nicaraguan play. The namesake cigar is a Nicaraguan puro, which is perfectly fitting. The wrapper is a Nicaraguan Corojo '99 with a silky russet-colored sheen. The core is a combination of Corojo and Criollo long-fillers, all contributing to a full-bodied experience. This is a bold, complex and rich blend, delivering notes of cedar, dark fruit, coffee, earth. sweet spice and pepper. If you're a fan of Nicaraguan cigars (and who isn't?), you absolutely have to try El Gueguense.
