Aging tobacco is quite common and a normal part of making cigars. Many blends will feature leaf that’s been aged for several months to a couple of years. Some companies, like Padrón, take things even further. They’re famous for having shelves on shelves of rare tobaccos locked away in their vaults, waiting to be made part of special blends.
The Macanudo Vintage 2006 is a cigar like this, but the twist is that the tobacco has been developing for over 15 years.
Most people can barely plan ahead to next month, let alone keep something carefully stored away for over a decade, so this is a special blend. The centerpiece is the Connecticut shade wrapper, which has been carefully maturing since harvesting in 2006. This type of tobacco has been a Macanudo specialty for ages, so you can expect outstanding mellow and subtle flavor from it. If you’re a fan of smooth and mild cigars, this is the wrapper you’ve been waiting for.
But wait, there’s more!
The Macanudo Vintage 2006 also features a Mexican San Andrés binder from 2006! Not only did the farmers up in Connecticut pack their vaults, but the team down in Mexico also has been squirreling away tobacco for a special occasion like this. The long-filler blend is then completed with Dominican (Piloto Cubano) and Mexican leaf.
Light up the Macanudo Vintage 2006 and you’ll be treated to an incredibly easygoing and delicious smoke. Gentle sweet hay, creamy coffee, and vanilla notes define the profile of the blend. Instead of building around maximum potency, Macanudo aimed to create a more subtle and satisfying stick, and the result is quite enjoyable.
Also, note the band. It’s metal! A fitting memento of commitment – one you can wear while you burn this cigar to the nub.
