The debut cigar and initial line blended under Master Cigar Maker Nicholas Melillo for Foundation Cigars. A true Nicaraguan puro, each bale of tobacco that goes into this cigar is hand selected by Melillo with the filler leaves coming from a special vintage crop from years 2011 and 2012. Melillo is personally overseeing production at the Tobacco Valle de Jalapa (TABSA) facility with production being limited to 225 units per day. El Giiegiiense is aged in cedar humidors for 30 days before being shipped from Nicaragua, ensuring The Wise Man celebrates the Nicaraguan people, land, and culture.
