Foundation Cigars Discontinues El Güegüense and Unveils “The Wise Man Corojo & Maduro” Made by Pepin Garcia

Foundation Cigars Discontinues El Güegüense and Unveils “The Wise Man Corojo & Maduro” Made by Pepin Garcia 1600 900 Michel Arlia

The Wise Man Corojo

Foundation Cigars is set to unveil its latest offerings, the Wise Man Corojo and Wise Man Maduro cigar lines. Crafted in collaboration with renowned cigar maker Pepin Garcia and My Father Cigars. The Wise Man Corojo and Wise Man Maduro are the culmination of a lifelong dream for Foundation Cigars owner Nicholas Melillo, who has long admired the work of Pepin Garcia. This collaboration represents a significant milestone for the brand, as it marks the first time that Foundation Cigars has partnered with My Father Cigars. “We are excited to introduce the NEW Wise Man Corojo and Wise Man Maduro to our lineup. Working with Pepín García and his family has been a dream come true, and we believe that cigar enthusiasts will appreciate the craftsmanship and flavor profiles of these new offerings,” said Nicholas Melillo, owner of Foundation Cigars.

The decision to discontinue El Güegüense was made to allow Foundation Cigars to focus on its new releases. This move comes after careful consideration and reflects Foundation Cigars’ commitment to innovation and excellence in the cigar industry. “While it’s bittersweet to say goodbye to the El Güegüense brand, it holds a special place in the history of Foundation Cigars. We believe it will become one of our most collectible and sought-after cigars,” says Melillo.

The Wise Man Maduro

The New Wise Man blends are offered in two distinguished variations, each showcasing the finest tobacco leaves meticulously chosen for their unique characteristics. Aficionados can savor The Wise Man Corojo, an all-Nicaraguan blend with filler tobaccos from Pepin Garcia’s farms in Estelí, Condega, and Jalapa Nicaragua.  Or The Wise Man Maduro with fillers from Estelí, Condega, and Jalapa and covered in a rich San Andrés Mexican wrapper.

Both lines are packaged in 20-ct boxes and are made up of the same four sizes:

  • Corona, 48 × 127 mm (5”), $10.50 per cigar
  • Doble Corona, 54 × 178 mm (7”), $13.50 per cigar
  • Robusto, 50 × 140 mm (5 1/2”), $11.50 per cigar
  • Toro, 52 × 152 mm (6”), $12.50 per cigar

“The Wise Man” will make its debut at the PCA Trade Show this March 2024. The cigars are set to start shipping to authorized retailers and discerning cigar enthusiasts worldwide starting mid-April 2024.
