The Wise Man Maduro is a rich blend of specially selected Nicaraguan fillers and carefully sourced aged San Andres Capa. The blend encompasses bold flavors of black pepper, dark roast espresso and cacao. It is medium plus in body and strength, rounded out with a nutty finish.
Melillo blended The Wise Man (El Güegüense) Maduro using Nicaraguan filler tobaccos from Condega, Esteli, and Jalapa and covered the cigar with a beautiful, oily, and rich San Andres Mexican Maduro wrapper. “We’ve enjoyed a lot of success with El Güegüense, and it is an honor for people to recognize a project that personally means so much to me.” says Melillo. “I was looking to create a line extension with a whole different level of complexity and the San Andrès wrapper brings just that. The blend encompasses bold flavors of black pepper, dark roast espresso, and cacao. Medium-plus in body and strength and rounded out with a nutty finish.”
“I have always been drawn to San Andrés, Mexico, and have been buying tobacco there since 2003. The wrapper is one of my favorites, not to mention one of the oldest seed varieties in the world, which predates even Cuban seed. The combination of this unique capa and Nicaraguan fillers makes for amazingly flavorful smoke.” says Melillo
The follow up to El Güegënse is The Wise Man Maduro. With no sophomore slump, Cigar Aficionado gave The Wise Man Maduro a rating of 95 and #3 Cigar of the Year.
The cigar shares the same Corojo binder found on the El Güegënse & has specially sourced Nicaraguan fillers. However, the wrapper is a Mexican San Andrés Maduro that Nick personally helped develop for this blend.
The Wise Man Maduro comes in 6 sizes. The result is a medium to full bodied smoke with notes of spice, espresso and cacao.
