Macanudo is a brand that you know if you know anything about cigars. You cannot go anywhere in the country, it seems, without finding the cigars, and every humidor and online cigar shop that I have ever perused, whether I was looking for them or not, seems to have a Macanudo cigar there. And more often, quite a few of them.
The first thing that you’ll need to know about Maduro is that they are the most popular brand of cigar in the United States. They sell amazingly well, and they are very common. This gives you a cigar that you can find consistently, anywhere you go, and the fact is that they’re a very approachable cigar that are good for the novice and the professional smoker alike. This cigar is one of the lightest-bodied and mildest Maduro cigars that I have ever seen, but to be fair, when I want a dark cigar, I normally stay in the ‘My Father’ area.
This cigar begins with a dark Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper, which is oily and rich in earthy tones. The filler is Mexican and Dominican long leaf tobaccos, and the binder is Mexican, leaving you with a cigar that has dark, earthy notes, chocolate and coffee tones, and a cigar that you will be happy to enjoy again and again. If you’re looking to try cigars that are a bit on the darker side, you’re going to find that a Macanudo Hyde Park Maduro cigar is a great introduction, and a box of them allows you to both enjoy the cigars and to have more to enjoy .
