“El Gueguense” was just too hard to say, so they simply went with the English translation for this Maduro-wrapped version, and called it the Wiseman.
The Foundation Wiseman earned a stunning 95 rating, and was named the #3 cigar of 2018 by Cigar Aficionado. The Mexican San Andrés Maduro wrapper and rich Nicaraguan filler blend put out smoke with the delicious flavors of cocoa powder, vanilla, rich coffee, seared beef, and black pepper. Nick Melillo, owner of Foundation, has clearly come into his own as a blender after breaking away from Drew Estate!
The Wiseman Maduro has been praised for its artful balance: strong without being overpowering, and full-bodied without stuffing the mouth – it stays enjoyable from beginning to end. It’s sweet, savory, and luxuriously earthy.
The cigar is named for one of the oldest dramatic works of the Americas – a Nicaraguan “play” called “El Gueguense.” In it, lies and deceit are used to advance agendas, and annual audiences come away shaking their heads at the lengths people will go to when they want to rise to the top. Fortunately for us and for cigar smokers all around the world, Foundation didn’t take the same approach when making the cigar itself. It’s exquisitely satisfying and one of the finest smokes you can get today.
You may not be familiar with the theatrical version, but if you manage to snag this stick when it’s in stock, you’re surely a wise man (or woman).
