A good cigar in an aluminum tube is a hard treat to beat, and having a box of twenty-five of them at your disposal? Well, it just can’t get much better than that.
Macanudo cigars are not a new thing in the United States. In fact, they are the best-selling brand in the United States, and have been for quite some time, and their sales around the world are very good as well. Of course, they were always a cigar company with an eye toward the future, toward making sure that they would be able to get a large portion of the market in Europe, so this just makes sense.
After the fall of Cuba to the communists, the cigar companies operating there were either nationalized or they were forced to go out of business, and Macanudo was one of the nationalized brands. However, the real owners of the brand fled, and the brand was reformed outside, with an eye toward making great cigars that the America public in particular would enjoy.
The Macanudo Gold line, of which Hampton Court tubos are just one offering, is one that is delicious to say the least. It begins with a specially grown crop of Connecticut shade, into which is placed filler and binder that compliment the natural sweetness of the wrapper well, and it ends with a cigar that you will want to try again and again.
