Foundation Cigars El Gueguense - Lancero
For five centuries, Nicaragua has stood as a convergence point of diverse cultures, harking back to a historic event when indigenous inhabitants cleverly satirized the arrival of Spanish Conquistadors through the vibrant and theatrical masterpiece known as El Gueguense. This dance has endured through time, surmounting cultural, social, and political divides. For Nicaraguans, El Gueguense represents a profound connection to their roots, encapsulating genuine national harmony within those cherished moments of timeless art and wit.
Inspired by this remarkable legacy, Nick Melillo founded the El Gueguense brand in 2015, paying homage to the rich history of Nicaragua—a country that has warmly embraced him for over two decades. As a Nicaraguan Puro, a blend notoriously challenging to perfect, El Gueguense stands as a genuine tribute to its homeland. Drawing from a lifetime of experience on the cutting edge of the cigar industry, Melillo skillfully crafted this series, exemplifying the pioneering spirit he is renowned for.
Consistently defying conventions, El Gueguense has proven to be a trailblazing collection, pushing boundaries and catapulting this ancient dance into the modern era of the 21st Century.
