Cigar Aficionado 2018 #3 Cigar Of The Year - Rated 95

 

Changing the name around to make it easier to say doesn’t alter the fact that The Wise Man Maduro Robusto cigar from Foundation is a seriously delicious smoke. The adventurous and wise among you might remember the Corojo-wrapped and 93-rated ‘El Gueguense’ (pronounced el-way-when-say and meaning, yes, ‘The Wise Man’) from just a couple of years ago, and if you do you know why we’re so excited for this updated version. Coated in a toothy and robust Mexican San Andres wrapper, the complex filler blend of longleaf Corojo and Criollo achieves a whole new level of sophistication and flavor.

 

In counterpoint to the original, the band on a The Wise Man Maduro Robusto is now primarily red with gold highlights and has swapped ‘The Wise Man’ and ‘El Gueguense’ as the headlining front mark name, but the mottled brown and black San Andres wrapper leaf is the true showpiece of this exquisite 5 1/2” X 50 vitola. Smelling and tasting of rich sweet cocoa before lighting, you’ll also notice hints of maple syrup and pungent earth that carry forward into the flavor profile once the foot is properly lit. Loaded with a hefty dose of red and black pepper plus a meaty char, there’s still room during the first half of the smoke to layer in coffee, dark fruit, and cream. The second half of this medium-full strength delight provides welcome waves of sweetness, namely dark chocolate and cherries reminiscent of a Black Forest cake.

 

Being granted a 95 rating is no small achievement, so a comparison to any cigar that may have come before does a disservice to a Foundation The Wise Man Maduro Robusto. Crafted by former Drew Estate mastermind Nicholas Melillo, you can’t go wrong in adding a few singles or a box to your humidor. The fact that we have them priced starting in the single digits is just icing on the cake. Pick up a 5-Pack today!
