MACANUDO INSPIRADO TO LAUNCH BRAZILIAN SHADE.
MACANUDO INSPIRADO TO LAUNCH BRAZILIAN SHADE
Macanudo will soon debut a new Inspirado collection featuring a rare Brazilian wrapper and a proprietary Cuban-seed filler, marking the first time these tobaccos have been used with Macanudo. Called Macanudo Inspirado Brazilian Shade, the limited-edition line brings together masterful blending with expert agronomy for a one-of-a-kind smoking experience.
Steve Abbot, senior brand manager of Macanudo said, “Macanudo Inspirado Brazilian Shade required a significant investment in agronomy, spanning Central and South America. This blend speaks to the lengths that we as a brand will go to in order to bring excitement to premium cigar smokers, and we’re confident that cigar lovers will be drawn to the singular experience this blend delivers.”
Grown in the lush tropical Bahia region of Brazil according to the exact specifications of Macanudo’s agronomists, the proprietary Connecticut Shade wrapper is golden with a silky sheen. It crowns a Mexican San Andrean binder and a blend that features “Dominican Cubita,” a unique and proprietary sungrown tobacco cultivated on a one-acre plot in the bucolic region of Mao, Dominican Republic. This special tobacco lends a unique aroma and spicy notes to the smoking experience. When surrounded by Brazilian tobacco, Dominican Piloto Cubano and Nicaraguan Jalapa, the tobaccos come together to deliver a layered, medium-bodied smoke that hints of toasted nuts, cocoa and sweet earth.
Handmade by artisans at the General Cigar Dominicana factory in Santiago, Dominican Republic, Macanudo Inspirado Brazilian Shade will ship to retailers on May 4th and will be available in two sizes. The cigars will be presented in ten-count boxes designed to pay homage to the Brazilian flag.
