Foundation Cigars El Güegüense

The El Güegüense was Foundation Cigars debut line that is produced in small quantities. The El Güegüense cigar is named after a Nicaraguan folk dance called “The Wise Man,” and is composed entirely of AGANORSA tobacco. The El Güegüense cigar is a Nicaraguan puro that uses a corojo 99 wrapper from Finca Puntalito in Jalapa and a corojo 99 binder from Finca San Jose in Jalapa along with a mixture of corojo and criollo filler tobaccos from Estelí and Jalapa. The El Güegüense cigars are rolled in Nicaragua at Tabacos Valle de Jalapa S.A. (TABSA). These cigars are blended by Nicholas Melillo who is also the founder of Foundation cigars and was the Executive Vice President of International Operations for Drew Estate. Foundation Cigars says that the leaves composing the El Güegüense are from the third, forth, sixth and medio tiempo primings and were used to obtain good strength, aroma and flavor. The flavors Intense with hints of honey, wood and pepper and the aromas are cedary with hints of sweetness.

The Foundation El Guenguense just received 91 rating from Cigar Aficionado in June, 2016 "finely constructed cigar that offers heavy notes of wood and cinnamon. The smoke becomes sweeter, showing elements of chocolate and vanilla bean."
