Wise Man


“This cigar is a tribute to Nicaragua, its culture, people, land and the bridge between the old world traditions and the new.”

-Nicholas Melillo, President of Foundation Cigar Company

Foundation Cigar Company President Nicholas Melillo recently released The Wise Man Maduro. The release provides for a line extension to Melillo’s premier brand El Gueguense which was included in Cigar Aficionado’s Top 25 list for 2016.

Melillo blended the The Wise Man Maduro using Nicaraguan filler tobaccos from Condega, Esteli, and Jalapa and covered the cigar with a beautiful, oily, and rich San Andres Mexican Maduro wrapper. “We’ve enjoyed a lot of success with El Gueguense, and it is an honor for people to recognize a project that personally means so much to me.” says Melillo. “I was looking to create a line extension with a whole different level of complexity and the San Andrès wrapper brings just that. The blend encompasses bold flavors of black pepper, dark roast espresso and cacao. Medium plus in body and strength and rounded out with a nutty finish.”

I have always been drawn to San Andrés, Mexico and have been buying tobacco there since 2003. The wrapper is one of my favorites, not to mention one of the oldest seed varieties in the world, which predates even Cuban seed. The combination of this unique capa and Nicaraguan fillers makes for an amazingly flavorful smoke.
