08 Sep Foundation’s El Güegüense and Wise Man Maduro Getting Thick Perfectos
Nick Melillo, founder of Foundation Cigar Co., is expanding his El Güegüense and The Wise Man Maduro lines by adding a thick perfecto to both of these Nicaraguan brands. The cigars will be on display at next month’s PCA trade show in Las Vegas and are expected to arrive at retail later this summer.
Measuring 4 3/4 inches by 60 ring gauge, the tapered perfectos are called Macho Raton. The name comes from the main character in the El Güegüense Nicaraguan folk tale which inspired both the cigar line of the same name, and its darker counterpart, The Wise Man Maduro.
