Macanudo Cigars

Macanudo is America’s best-selling and most popular cigar brand. It is known for its mild flavor and body as well as its unparalleled consistency.

Macanudo was originally the name of a frontmark produced in Jamaica by the makers of the Cuban brand of Punch. In 1971, General Cigar, which had acquired rights to the name outside of Cuba, introduced a completely distinct Macanudo as a brand unto itself. Developed in Jamaica under the leadership of Ramón Cifuentes, a veteran of Cuban cigar maker Partagas. Production of the Macanudo line under General Cigar shifted from Jamaica to the Dominican Republic in October 2000.

Combining a Connecticut shade wrapper, Dominican fillers, and a unique binder grown in the San Andres Valley of Mexico, the Macanudo is fairly straight forward and light in flavor with a very short finish. Macanudo is the cigar that put General Cigar Co. on the map and has led to their unprecedented success. Still on top as the best seller, the name Macanudo is one of the most recognizable in world. Nowhere else can such consistency be found in a cigar. This blend is ideal for those enthusiasts who are just getting started or those veterans who don’t like an overwhelming level of flavor or body in a cigar.
