General Cigar Co. has begun shipping two new sizes of its Macanudo Inspirado White line.

While both are smaller sizes, the larger of the two is the Inspirado White Corona (5 1/2 x 42), which has an MSRP of $5.49 per cigar and is sold in boxes of 20. There is also the new Macanudo Inspirado White Cigarillo (4 3/16 x 32) which has an MSRP of $15.99 per tin of 10 cigarillos. Despite the Cigarillo’s petite size, General already sells an even smaller version of Inspirado White, the 3 x 20 Minis.

The Inspirado White blend—which debuted in 2017—uses a six-year-old Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper over an Indonesian binder and fillers from the Condega and Jalapa regions of Nicaragua as well as Mexico’s San Andrés Valley.

Interestingly, the two cigars are made at two different factories. The Inspirado White Cigarillo is being produced at General Cigar Dominicana in the Dominican Republic while the Inspirado White Corona is being made at STG Danlí in Honduras.
