Nicholas Melillo, of Foundation Cigar Company, has been in the cigar industry for some time. His inaugural release is the El Güegüense, meaning “The Wise Man”. This cigar possesses some serious flavor and body. We’ll just say “full” for both aspects. The blend incorporates Criollo 98 and Corojo 99 tobaccos from Jalapa and Esteli. It features leaves from third, fourth, sixth, and medio tiempo primings. Presented in twenty-five count boxes this cigar is something else. Available in five vitolas this brand has everything going for it.
