Foundation The Wise Man Maduro

Corona Gorda/ 5.62 × 46

Foundation The Wise Man Maduro Corona Gorda uses my favorite wrapper, the Mexican Mexican San Andrés, and this gem was as dark and oily as they come. The construction was perfect, the draw was open, and the medium to full body flavors were heavy on chocolate and spicy pepper, with background notes of coffee, sweet leather, and cream. All combined these great flavors made for a very complex smoke that I will definitely be adding to my cigar humidor. Rated No. 3 Cigar of the Year on Cigar Aficionado Top 25 Cigars for 2018!

This is a cigar that has surprised me!!! I checked it out because it had top 3 ranking in 2018 by Cigar Aficionado and strength wise at first it starts out nice and smooth not too strong at all but about half way through it starts to get stronger to create this beautiful flavor packing a peppery kick with hints of coffee and cream!! I highly recommend to anyone looking for new daily smoke!!!


I see why this cigar gets raving reviews and very high ratings! The flavors are very complex, and also very enjoyable! As many others described, you taste berries, like blackberries or blueberries, which are very savory and rich... Also behind that, is a FULL-SPECTRUM of chocolate, including dark chocolate, bakers cocoa, and milk chocolate! All of those combined provide very deep and complex long-lasting flavor notes. Take a bite of your favorite dessert pie, and that is this stick! It deserves a first AND second try!


Nice dark wrapper with strong flavors and smooth profile. Great smoke with a complex taste and nice finish.
