This year marks the 50th anniversary of the Macanudo brand. While the brand’s owner, General Cigar Co., could have gone the route of paying homage to a half century, it instead is choosing to push the boundaries and perceptions of one of the most popular names in cigars.
For the first time ever, there will be an infused Macanudo.
The Macanudo M is a coffee-infused cigar using an Indonesian Besuki wrapper, a binder from the Philippines, while the filler contains Nicaraguan leaves “and other fine tobaccos.” It will be offered in three sizes:
- Macanudo M Corona (6 x 44) — $7.49 (Boxes of 20, $149.80)
- Macanudo M Toro (6 x 50) — $7.99 (Boxes of 20, $159.80)
- Macanudo M Belicoso (6 x 54) — $8.49 (Boxes of 20, $169.80)
“With M, we’re once again launching a cigar that defies the conventional notions of what the brand represents,” said Steve Abbot, senior brand manager for Macanudo, in a press release. “This is not your typical flavored cigar. M smokes like a premium Nicaraguan cigar, and the experience is enhanced with just the right amount of coffee flavor. We’re sure that M will be a fast favorite among Macanudo smokers, as it will be for any premium cigar smoker looking to up their game with a dynamic and flavorful smoke.”
It debuts today at the start of the 2018 IPCPR Convention & Trade Show and will ship to retailers later this month.
