Macanudo is releasing a sequel to their successful collaboration with Flint Knoll Winery. Macanudo is continuing their collaboration with Napa Valley’s Flint Knoll Winery to produce Macanudo Estate Reserve Flint Knoll No 2. The limited-edition expression of Macanudo uses proprietary tobacco aged in wine barrels to create a one-of-a-kind smoking experience.
"Overall, this was an excellent cigar. The flavors were excellent, and the texture of the smoke was perfect. The draw could have been a little better, but still very good. All in all, I would most definitely smoke this cigar again, and I’m curious to see what it turns out to be." -Angel M. (Angel)
General Cigar has a new Macanudo cigar coming out next month, and it's a new addition to their Inspirado line. The name for Macanudo Inspirado Tercio Aged comes from the technique of tercio aging.
"This is one of those cigars that might create problems with some smokers. The flowery ash and uneven burn might cause some to relight it too many times. This would change the flavor profile for most. If they can get past all of this they might enjoy the smoking experience. All that being said, this cigar is a “Don’t judge a book by its cover” kind of cigar. You should try it out and see what you think." -Estevan Z. (TheRealBanzi)
Macanudo and Flint Knoll, a Napa Valley-based boutique winery that crafts limited production wines, have collaborated to create Macanudo Estate Reserve Flint Knoll. This cigar is meant to highlight the similarities between two crafts, cigars and wine.
"While the flavors weren't mindblowing or unique, they were very enjoyable when judged as a whole. A wide range of flavors including milk chocolate, leather, oaky woodiness, and earth really hit my palate right in the sweet spot. I'd love to smoke this again, perhaps in a smaller vitola to really get the flavors from the wrapper to shine." -Kevin J. (maninblack77)
