Quick Smoke: El Güegüense Corona Gorda

16 Dec 2017

Each Saturday and Sunday we’ll post a Quick Smoke: not quite a full review, just our brief verdict on a single cigar of “buy,” “hold,” or “sell.”

Corona Gorda

Nicholas Melillo has expanded the offerings of his Foundation Cigar Co. to over a half-dozen blends, but my favorite remains the first. A Nicaraguan puro made at the TABSA (Tobaccos Valle de Jalapa) factory in Nicaragua using Aganorsa tobacco, El Güegüense was launched in 2015. (An El Güegüense Maduro with a Mexican wrapper was added later.) The Corona Gorda (5.6 x 46) features balanced, medium- to full-bodied flavors with cedar, bread, coffee, and sweet cream. Well-constructed, complex, and priced fairly (under $10), it is a must-try for fans of Nicaraguan cigars.

Verdict = Buy.
