M by MACANUDO
The evolution of Macanudo continues with M, the brand’s first flavor-infused cigar.
With sophisticated nuances of single origin coffee, M by Macanudo is a rich and aromatic cigar brimming with tobacco flavor.
Steve Abbot, senior brand manager for Macanudo said, “With M, we’re once again launching a cigar that defies the conventional notions of what the brand represents. This is not your typical flavored cigar. M smokes like a premium Nicaraguan cigar, and the experience is enhanced with just the right amount of coffee flavor. We’re sure that M will be a fast favorite among Macanudo smokers, as it will be for any premium cigar smoker looking to up their game with a dynamic and flavorful smoke.”
As M is handcrafted according to Macanudo’s exacting standards, only the finest, hand-selected leaves are chosen. A silky Indonesian Besuki wrapper and a binder from the Philippines are peppered with a blend of Nicaraguan and other fine tobaccos, yet this intriguing cigar still retains a medium-bodied edge.
Notes of cedar, earth and spice are intertwined with hints of gourmet coffee for a creamy cigar that smokes like the best café con leche you’ve ever tasted.
M by Macanudo will debut in July, shipping to retailers after the IPCPR trade show. The collection will launch with these three sizes, each packed in boxes containing 20 cigars:
Corona (6” x 44); SRP per cigar $7.49
Toro (6” x 50); SRP per cigar $7.99
Belicoso (6” x 54); SRP per cigar $8.49
