Foundation Cigar Company announced the release of The Wise Man (El Güegüense) Maduro, for IPCPR 2017 in Las Vegas, NV. The release provides for a line extension to Foundation’s premier brand released during IPCPR 2015.
The cigars will be available in twenty-five count boxes in five box pressed sizes and are being produced at TABSA in Esteli, Nicaragua. The varieties will include a 5 ½ x 50 Robusto, a 5 5/8 x 46 Corona Gorda, a 6 x 56 Toro Huaco, a 7 x 48 Churchill, and a 6 ¼ x 52 Torpedo. The cigars will be priced in the retail range of $9-$13.-.
Foundation Cigar Company President and master blender, Nicholas Melillo, blended The Wise Man (El Güegüense) Maduro using Nicaraguan filler tobaccos from Condega, Esteli, and Jalapa and a dark San Andrés Mexican Maduro wrapper. “I was looking to create a line extension with a whole different level of complexity and the San Andrès wrapper brings just that,” Melillo commented. “This cigar is a tribute to Nicaragua, its culture, its people, its land and the bridge between old world traditions and the new.”
