The name comes from a drama by the indigenous inhabitants that mocked the arriving Spanish conquistadors . The satirical masterpiece is called “El Güegüense” (Gwe-gwe-nse), which means “The Wise Man”. “El Güegüense” is an expression of Nicaragua’s unique history and culture. The blend was Nick Melillo’s first cigar he released under his brand Foundation Cigars. Nick is well regarded as an incredible blender, and wealth of knowledge on tobacco. He is responsible for the success of the Liga Privada blends and with the El Gueguense he brought something new to the table. He brought a cigar that pays homage to Nicaragua and the people who he has entwined his life with. This blend uses a heavy blend of Corojo tobaccos showing off the nuance and diversity of tobacco in Nicaragua. Sourdough, brown sugar, sweet coffee, and a signature cedar that comes from the 60 days of aging in cedar boxes before the cigars are ready to be shipped.
