On the heels of the success of the 5-Year Aniversario blend comes this chubby little pile of flavor, the Foundation El Güegüense Macho Raton cigar. This is a 4.75 x 60 perfecto that will probably remind many of Drew Estate's flying pigs. It’s perfect when you need a breaktime smoke that won’t set you back two hours of hardcore puffing.

But how did we get here?

Well, Foundation is a fairly new company (at least at the time of this writing), and El Güegüense is one of its standout smokes. The fast rise of the company, founded by Connecticut native Nicholas Melillo, is due in large part to this delicious blend. Not only has the standard version earned 92 points from Cigar Aficionado, the Maduro was rated 95 and almost won Cigar of the Year, charting at #3.

So this one’s a banger.

Macho Raton is the main character of the Nicaraguan folk play, El Güegüense. The play was written during the colonial era when natives were struggling to combat Spanish rule. It tells of a clever merchant who evades royal taxation and resists colonial domination in other ways. It should warm our red, white, and blue hearts – what born American doesn’t love a story of sticking it to European colonial authorities? Anyhow, the main character’s name is Macho Raton, and so this extension of the line is named in his honor.

Foundation El Güegüense Macho Raton cigars are beautifully constructed, drawing you in with a syrupy brown Corojo 99 wrapper from Jalapa and the irresistible aroma of cocoa dust. Inside, there’s a binder of Mexican San Andrés leaf, cradling high-quality Nicaraguan long-filler from Estelí and Jalapa. This tobacco comes right from the same soil that gave us the songs, the story, the costumes, and the lively performance that is still carried on each year under the name of El Güegüense.

Light this perfecto and draw in the core flavors of leather and coffee, touched with bright apricot and smooth caramel on the finish. This blend is still getting it done, and shows no signs of slowing down! Macho Raton is a delightful way to enjoy a Nicaraguan stogie that pays homage to an ancient heritage of intelligence and loyalty to the ground in which your native roots run deep.

This Foundation Cigar Co El Gueguense Macho Raton cigar is made in Nicaragua. Outside, you'll find a Corojo wrapper. Inside, the binder is Corojo, and the filler is Nicaraguan. This is a Perfecto cigar with a length of 4.75 and a ring gauge of 60.
