Macanudo cigars are produced in Santiago, Dominican Republic using a mild Dominican blend of a binder from the Tuxtla Valley of Mexico, filler and premium Connecticut shade wrapper. The end result is a cigar that always provides a distinctively smooth, mellow taste. Macanudo was originally the name of a frontmark produced in Jamaica by the makers of the Cuban brand of Punch. In 1971, General Cigar Company introduced a new cigar named Macanudo as a brand unto itself. Developed in Jamaica under the creative leadership of Ramon Cifuentes, the legendary Cuban cigar master of Partagas, Macanudo soon became the leading premium cigar and remains so today. No other cigar tastes like a Macanudo because no other cigar is made like a Macanudo. Only the makers of Macanudo spend the time and effort it takes to grow, cure and age their own Connecticut Shade wrappers. And only the makers of Macanudo age all of their tobaccos twice, just as it used to be done in Havana during the golden age of Cuban cigars.
