BACKGROUND: “El Güegüense,” or “The Wise Man,” is a Nicaraguan puro using a Corojo 99 wrapper from Jalapa and a Corojo 99 binder from a different farm also in Jalapa. In the filler, there’s a mixture of Corojo and Criollo fillers from Estelí and Jalapa. Tabacos Valle de Jalapa S.A. (TABSA) is producing El Güegüense for Melillo in Nicaragua.
The El Güegüense was released in 2015 with five vitolas. This week’s featured stogie is, the 5 5/8” x 46 ring gauge Corona Gorda.
