Scandinavian Tobacco Group (STG) is coming out with a limited edition of their Macanudo Inspirado to commemorate The Chinese New Year which begins on January 22, 2023. The new cigar, dubbed Macanudo Inspirado “Year of the Rabbit,” will be sold exclusively in select markets in Europe and Asia.
While Lunar New Year celebrations are gaining in popularity, the demand for Macanudo Inspirado continues to grow globally as the blends are particularly appealing to a range of palates. With Macanudo Inspirado Year of the Rabbit, we are unifying the Lunar New Year celebrations with a unique blend that will be enjoyed by our clients in European and Asia who have requested a cigar for this important occasion. As the Year of the Rabbit embodies elegance, peace and luck, we extend those wishes to our clients across the world.
