Foundation Cigar Company Güegüense Maduro
An attractive looking, slightly box pressed cigar that had great hand and eye appeal. Firmly packed with tobacco and heavy in the hand, the draw was smooth and effortless. The texture of the wrapper was smooth to the touch, with some toothiness and an oily sheen. The pre-light nose was earthy, sweet and clean. Once lit there was no doubt that it was going to deliver a full and rich flavor through dense, full-bodied smoke. There were notes of black pepper in the taste with spicy white pepper notes through the nose. Spices continued to linger in the taste and in the nose throughout the duration of the cigar and accentuated the full flavors. More earthy and dark chocolate notes developed. The burn was incredibly even and slow. Overall this was a rich, full flavored, spicy, full bodied cigar that was incredibly well made. Ideal for later in the day, after a meal or with a strong drink. This is a great cigar to kick back with and enjoy.
