Pronounced El Whey-When-Say, Foundation Cigars' El Gueguense translates to The Wiseman in Nicaraguan culture. Handcrafted by AJ Fernandez, these cigars were the initial foray into the cigar market for Nick Melillo. Its Maduro Robusto size earned to #3 spot on Cigar Aficionado's 2018 top 25 list, and that's no doubt thanks to its cast of hand selected tobaccos. Whether you choose the San Andres Maduro, with its sweet finish and coffee-esque appeal, or the Corojo Natural with a spicy sweet flavor and aroma, you're in for a treat of legendary proportions.

Nick Melilo s Cigar Foundation staple El Gueguense is life changing along with his highclere and tabernacle. Beautiful, tasty, creamy smoke. One of the best, if not the best. should be a staple in your humidor.
This cigar is great...as a matter of fact anything from foundation is great...if you haven t tried this cigar...what are you waiting for??? And the good folks at famous always have deals on them...
Extremely good cigar. If you want a top shelf cigar at a reasonable price this cigar is in that category. Full flavored and tasty! 5 star all the way
I love Padron. The 1926 and 1964 and the special this and special thats but the Foundation cigars have become my go-to. You cant beat them and El GueGeunese Robusto is so good. All the Wise Guys are great. So are the Highclare castle ? not sure if thats the name. But theyre like candy. The best Nicaraguans you will smoke by far. I promise.
I have a passion for collecting Lanceros and this was a must have in my collection
This cigar is from Eduardo Fernández not AJ
Just got back from Cuba where I had some incredible smokes. Stopped in a smoke shop on the way home, while my cigars are still luggage and had a Wise Man. Great smoke as I m sitting at the beach in Ft Lauderdale. Well deserving of the high rating.
A masterful blend pleasing to the pallet.
Nice slow burn with a consistent burn throughout.If you are wise you?ll pick some of these sticks up. Great deal.
