El Gueguense Corona Gorda, The Wise Man by Foundation Cigars

Corojo, El Güegüense, Foundation Cigars, Mick Melillio, Nicaraguan Corojo 99, The Wise ManWow, another Fantastic cigar that I’ve somehow ignored for a better part of a year, the El Gueguense (The Wise Man) in Corona Gorda, by Foundation Cigars

Creamy chewy smoke! Just the way I like it. Again, I can’t believe that it’s been so long since I’ve smoked this magnificent cigar.

Creamy earthy tobaccos with a touch of cocoa with a very mild retrohale through a perfect draw via my new V-Cutter are what this cigar delivers.

At the second third a bit of leather joins the party while chewy smoke pours freely making way for my autopilot cigar smoking as I just want to relax with this cigar.

At the last third, almonds or almond paste enters the mix with chewy earthy leather laden smoke. The retrohale is still on the mild side; not quite what I was expecting… and I’m good with that.

I’m lovin’ El Gueguense (The Wise Man) in Corona Gorda, by Foundation Cigars and I want more please!

A Nicaraguan Corojo 99 Puro along with a mixture of Corojo and Criollo filler tobaccos from Estelí and Jalapa; what could be bad.

This cigar delivered some sweetness on the cold draw that after blazed produced a perfect draw with a razor burn and lots of smoke. Big flavors to start of pepper and wood that mellowed at the first 3rd. The rest was a creamy smooth ride until the final 3rd. the Pepper Spice started to pick up so I decided to take my time with this… Sure enough, everything smoothed out…

I’m learning…
