El Gueguense Cigars

El Gueguense is the debut cigar from Foundation Cigar Company, making its first appearance in 2015. Led by Nicholas Melillo (formerly of Drew Estate), Foundation Cigar Co. produces El Gueguense in Esteli, Nicaragua at the Tabacos Valle De Jalapa S.A factory and is known for its diverse mix of Nicaraguan tobaccos including a variety of Corojo and Criollo wrappers from Jalapa and Esteli. 'El Gueguense' translates into 'The Wise Man' in Nicaraguan slang, and picking up this cigar sure is wise indeed.

El Gueguense

El Gueguense (pronounced Way-Wen-Say) is the first cigar released by Foundation Cigar Company after founder Nick Melillo left Drew Estate to start his own venture. The cigar is a Nicaraguan puro made in Nicaragua and the unusual name comes from a satirical folkloric character El Gueguense or "Wise Man".

El Gueguense 5 Year Aniversario

To celebrate the fifth anniversary of Foundation Cigars and the launch of the El Gueguense cigar, master blender and founder Nick Melillo created the El Gueguense 5 Year Aniversario. Expertly handmade at the Aganorsa Leaf factory in Nicaragua, the blend for this limited-edition stick uses a completely different blend than the original, which was a Nicaraguan puro. The El Guegunese 5 Year Aniversario sports a Nicaraguan Corojo ‘99 wrapper placed over a Mexican San Andres binder and a filler composed of premium tobaccos from Esteli and Jalapa, Nicaragua. The cigars are placed in a collector’s edition wooden box designed by Foundation’s art director Thief Operandi.

Per  Hi, how does backorder work to Sweden? Do you hold the whole order until its complete or do you ship backorder item(s) afterward? In the later case, will shipping fee be charge to the backorder items?
Posted 7/19/2019   
  • NeptuneCigar.com  Hello, for international shipments, we typically hold the order to send it in 1 parcel. We can of course split the shipment at the buyer's request, but postage fees may apply.
