Step into the world of the distinctly Nicaraguan with El Gueguense, a cigar that might leave you wondering how the heck to pronounce its name – it's "el wah-when-say," meaning "the wise man." And here's a fun fact: it's also one of the oldest known Nicaraguan plays. Nicholas Melillo, the man who ventured into the world of Foundation Cigar Company after leaving Drew Estate, brings you his debut blend with a touch of cultural flair. The packaging and bands pay homage to the play and showcase Melillo's love for Nicaragua.

Now, let's dive into the blend of El Gueguense – a Nicaraguan puro dressed in a Corojo '99 wrapper and binder, with a mix of Corojo and Criollo long-fillers from the bountiful years of 2011 and 2012. But that's not all; this blend has been given the VIP treatment with additional aging in cedar before making its debut. The result? An elegant, complex, and well-balanced cigar that's ready to take your palate on a full-bodied dance, with notes of cedar and spice, sprinkled with a touch of sweetness.

If you're still not convinced, let the impressive accolades do the talking – El Gueguense snagged an impressive 92-rating and a spot on the Top 25 Cigars of 2016 list. The review gushed, "The combination of different varietals from different regions makes this an interesting, tasty melange of Nicaraguan tobacco." So, if you're up for a wisdom-filled journey through Nicaraguan flavors, El Gueguense is your sage companion. Get ready to puff wisdom!
