Foundation Cigars The Wise Man Maduro
Wrapper: San Andres Mexico
Binder: Corojo 99 jalapa
95 rating from Cigar Aficionado
The Wise Man Maduro is an offshoot of the original El Güegüense, which loosely translates to “The Wise Man” and is named for a folkloric dance in Nicaragua. This Maduro has all the qualities of a stand-out cigar: assertive without being aggressive, full-bodied without being too strong and interesting from first puff to last. It’s a flavorful blend that oscillates between the sweet and the savory. Cocoa and vanilla notes play off the tobacco’s meaty, beef-stock qualities, all integrated by an ever-present earthiness. The Wise Man Maduro has received numerous accolades including a 95 rating from Cigar Aficionado, a 93 rating from Cigar Dojo, winning Halfwheel’s Consensus, as well as being included in various Top 25 lists.
