José de Castro, vice president of marketing for General Cigar’s Macanudo brand said, “As we celebrate the 50th anniversary of Macanudo, we created Macanudo Inspirado Red to speak to the brand’s unique ability to adapt to the preferences of today’s cigar lovers. Nicaraguan cigars are hot right now. With ‘Inspirado Red,’ we show how nimble the brand can be by introducing a unique, Nicaraguan-forward blend to the line, while highlighting the expertise of the torcederos from our cigar factory in Esteli.”
The blend features an Ecuadoran Habano ligero wrapper and blended with Nicaraguan fillers including twelve-year aged Nicaraguan Ometepe, ten-year aged Honduran Jamastran and five-year-aged Nicaraguan Esteli, and a Jalapa binder.
Macanudo Inspirado Red is rolled at STG Esteli in Nicaragua and will be available throughout the U.S. March 26th. The cigar will be aviailable in three vitolas presented in 20-count boxes: Robusto: 5 by 50 (box pressed) – SRP per cigar is $6.49, Toro: 6 by 50 – SRP per cigar is $6.99, Gigante: 6 by 60 – SRP per cigar is $7.49.
