    Macanudo Cafe


    Literally everyone knows the name. What most folks don’t know is that Macanudo was originally the name of a brand style made in Guatemala by the makers of the Punch Cuban cigars . In 1971, General Cigar, which had acquired rights to the name outside of Cuba, introduced Macanudo as a stand alone brand and the rest is cigar history! It was originally made on the Island of Jamaica under the supervision of Master Blender, Ramón Cifuentes, a veteran of Cuban cigar maker Partagas. Production shifted from Jamaica to the Dominican Republic in October 2000 where it remains.

    It’s hard to believe that a handmade product can remain so well made and impeccably consistent for almost 50 years. The proprietary, selected blend of these cigars is a benchmark for the overused term, mild. Yes, they’re mild but also have a smooth and crispy character that has been universally accepted by millions of smokers. Over the years I have recommended the 8 count box of Glass Tubed Crystal Cafes more times than I can remember.

  • Macanudo Maduro


    I’ve listed the interesting history of this 50 year old iconic brand on the “Cafe” edition review. The Maduro edition arrived over 20 years ago with a dark Broadleaf wrapper encasing the Cafe’s signature blend. The result moved the needle on the taste meter into medium bodied flavor range opening up the brand to new smokers that wanted a more robust smoke while enjoying Macanudos quality and consistency.
