Macanudo Inspirado…The Evolution Continues

Macanudo’s acclaimed international blends will soon be available to cigar lovers in the U.S., with the release of two channel-exclusive collections.

Macanudo Inspirado debuted in Europe in 2014 and quickly became a global success, selling in more than 40 countries worldwide. Beginning this month, Macanudo Inspirado Orange and Macanudo Inspirado Black will be full-time additions to the Macanudo portfolio.

“The launch of Macanudo Inspirado marks another exciting milestone for this iconic brand,” said Alan Willner, vice president of marketing. By bringing this global brand extension stateside, we are continuing to evolve Macanudo by expanding the line with fuller-flavored offerings. We are confident that Macanudo Inspirado will be a welcome addition to the repertoires of tenured smokers who seek expertly blended, proprietary tobaccos from a variety of origins.”

Macanudo Inspirado Orange will be available only through brick and mortar cigar shops, and Macanudo Inspirado Black will be available through internet and catalog retailers exclusively. The collections are presented in 20 count boxes. Additional details appear below.
