Macanudo cigars are not an unknown entity in the cigar world. If you’ve ever smoked a cigar in a cigar lounge or had to shop through your local humidor, or if you’ve ever even spent a bit of time shopping for cigars at a cigar shop online, you probably know their boxes, their logo, and even the look of some of their bands. It’s not an easy cigar to escape; it is, after all, the best-selling cigar in the United States, and one of the best-selling cigars in the world. It’s a cigar that you can find almost everywhere, and there’s a reason for it.
Before the Cuban revolution, Macanudo cigars were well-known. They were not really aimed at American audiences, but rather at the audiences of the European nations, and more specifically, they were targeted to those who were in the English market. This may explain why so many of the cigars have names that are references to England in one way or another.
But is this cigar a good one? Well, that depends on what you like. If you’re looking for a mellow cigar, one that is light in body and delicious still, one that has creamy notes to it and a bit of pepper in the flavor, then you will love this Macanudo Café offering. If you’re looking for a cigar that is complex and light, this is a great cigar for you. If, on the other hand, you’re looking for a cigar that is dark and heavy? Then you may want to look elsewhere.
