Macanudo Gold Label is an annual release for General Cigar, and this time there will be a new limited edition parejo vitola, Gigante. The Gold Label has been around since 2002 and was blended around a special Connecticut Shade wrapper leaf.
Year after year, anticipation for the annual release of Macanudo Gold Label continues to build. The brand boldly bucks the trend for powerhouse smokes with its alluringly mellow, creamy notes, offering cigar lovers the opportunity to create indulgent, memorable moments. I’m looking forward to enjoying this amazing smoke with cigar lovers across the country.

Macanudo Gold Label 2021 will start shipping to retailers immediately and will be available through July 30, 2021 or until this year’s allotment has been depleted. A total of eight sizes will be available, including the new “Gigante,” a 6 x 60.
Macanudo Gold Label cigars are named for the brand’s golden wrapper leaves harvested from the first and second primings of the Connecticut Shade tobacco plant. Exposed to less sunlight which allows more natural sugars to remain, each leaf is extremely thin and remarkably supple with barely visible veins. The result is a texture that is especially smooth and silky, and a subtle hint of sweetness on the palate.
The wrapper is combined with the first and second primings of Mexican San Andreas tobacco for the binder, and uses a Dominican Piloto Cubano and Mexican tobaccos for fillers. Boxes come with gold foil accents and in 8 sizes:
