Nicholas Melillo was Drew Estate's chief tobacco buyer for over 12 years and was responsible for sourcing the company's large tobacco inventories for its famous lines like Liga Privada and Herrera Esteli. He left the company before the Swisher buyout and created Foundation Cigar Company. His first line underscores his love of the country he has called home for all these years.

The inaugural brand is called El Güegüense and is a nod to Nicaragua's oldest folktale. Meaning 'the wise man", El Güegüense is an all-Nicaraguan blend made at TABSA and uses the famous Aganorsa tobacco. Production is capped at 200 boxes of each vitola per month so it is a small-batch production. It features a Corojo '99 wrapper and binder from Jalapa, and a filler blend of Corojo '99 and Criollo '98 from Jalapa and Estelí. The flavor profile includes spice, cream, coffee and cedar.

El Güegüense Torpedo cigar measures 6 1/4 inches by 52rg and will smoke about 55 minutes.
