El Güegüense 5 Year Aniversario by Foundation Cigars


COVID-19 Day 300:
 Aganorsa Corojo, El Goegoense, El Güegüense 5 Year Aniversario, Foundation Cigars, Mexican San Andres, Nicaraguan Corojo 99, Perfecto, Wise Man I don’t know if I can keep a steady diet of these outstanding El Güegüense (Wise Man) 5-Year Aniversario cigars by Foundation Cigars at $15.00 a pop, but I’ll have this smoking experience etched in my mind and taste buds… I just wanted 15 minutes more with this delicious 5-Year Anniversary cigar by Foundation Cigars.

I would have liked a different Vitola as these over-sized stubby cigars aren’t in my wheelhouse, but the tobacco blend did have an enduring experience for me.

As soon as I figured out that I had to cut enough of the Perfecto Cap off, whoosh… the deep rich Corojo tobacco flavors came rushing in… all the way down to the smoky Nub!

I’m glad I have another one resting for a “Special” time… I hope soon.
