08 Sep FOUNDATION CIGAR CO. BEGINS SHIPPING EL GÜEGÜENSE & THE WISE MAN MADURO MACHO RATON, MENELIK TORO
Three new cigars from Foundation Cigar Co. are on their way to retailers today, as Nicholas Melillo, Foundation’s founder, told halfwheel that he has the first shipments of the El Güegüense Macho Raton, The Wise Man Maduro Macho Raton, and the Menelik Toro ready to begin shipping to stores.
The Macho Raton is a 4 3/4 x 60 figurado vitola that is being added to the El Güegüense and The Wise Man Maduro lines. The two lines have similar blends, as both use fillers from Nicaragua’s Estelí and Jalapa regions, with the El Güegüense line using a Nicaraguan corojo 99 wrapper and a Mexican San Andrés binder. The Wise Man Maduro reversers the placement of those leaves, with a Mexican San Andrés wrapper and a Nicaraguan corojo 99 binder.
