    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 It was originally made on the Island of Jamaica under the supervision of Master Blender, Ramón Cifuentes, a veteran of Cuban cigar maker Partagas.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.
