Last year, General Cigar Co. ushered in what it called a new era for Macanudo with the release of M by Macanudo, the first infused Macanudo that incorporated “nuances of gourmet coffee.” This year it expands on that with M Bourbon by Macanudo, the first flavored cigar in the brand’s history.
The cigar uses an Ecuadoran Connecticut shade wrapper, an Ecuadoran binder and a filler from the Dominican Republic. In addition to notes of bourbon, the company says it offers American oak, sweet cherries and earthy, aromatic bitters.
It is being released in three sizes:
- M Bourbon by Macanudo Robusto (5 x 50) – $7.49 (Box of 20, $149.80)
- M Bourbon by Macanudo Toro (6 x 50) – $7.99 (Box of 20, $159.80)
- M Bourbon by Macanudo Churchill (7 x 47) – $8.49 (Box of 20, $169.80)
The cigars are set to begin shipping on Aug. 1.
