Long before it was known as the mild “everyday smoke” value brand, Macanudo wasn’t a brand at all; it was the name of a cigar size produced by the Cuban half of Punch Cigars. Then a Jamaican cigar maker named Temple Hall took control, and Macanudo was produced in Jamaica exclusively for British smokers. In 1969 General Cigar purchased the Kingston Temple Hall factory and got to work recreating Macanudo to launch as its own brand in 1971.
Macanudo has never used any gimmicks, parlor tricks, or bells and whistles. Traditionally, their cigars are mild and straightforward with very little complexity. They are smooth, creamy, and among the best-selling cigars globally. The traditional Macanudo blueprint is certainly pressing the right palate buttons with their loyal following. Also, Macanudo has always been the ideal brand for new smokers learning the noble path of cigar enthusiasts.
But with Macanudo Inspirado Black cigars, all of these changes, and these full-strength sticks are not messing around. They can make even the most experienced enthusiast take a seat as the buzz signals their legs that standing is no longer an option.
Yes, Macanudo Inspirado Black cigars are complex and full-bodied, but they remain balanced and retain the signature smoothness Macanudo lovers know so well. The filler blend is Nicaraguan tobaccos grown in Estelí. The binder is Ecuadorian Sumatra from the mid and upper-priming leaves. These leaves add more strength and flavor to the Macanudo Inspirado Black cigars. Expect flavors of spice, dark chocolate, and coffee. The cigar has a huge smoke output and exceptional burn line.
