The evolution of Macanudo continues with Macanudo Inspirado Red, a new addition to the Inspirado portfolio.
José de Castro, vice president of marketing for General Cigar’s Macanudo brand said: “As we celebrate the 50th anniversary of Macanudo, we created Macanudo Inspirado Red to speak to the brand’s unique ability to adapt to the preferences of today’s cigar lovers. Nicaraguan cigars are hot right now. With Inspirado Red, we show how nimble the brand can be by introducing a unique, Nicaraguan-forward blend to the line, while highlighting the expertise of the torcederos from our cigar factory in Estelí.”
Dressed in Ecuadoran Habano ligero and blended with tobaccos including twelve-year aged Nicaraguan Ometepe, ten-year aged Honduran Jamastran and five-year-aged Nicaraguan Estelí, Macanudo Inspirado Red has a Nicaraguan Jalapa binder.
Macanudo Inspirado Red is handcrafted at STG Estelí in Nicaragua and will be available throughout the U.S. in all channels beginning in late March. The line will debut with three frontmarks, each presented in 20-count boxes:
Robusto: 5 x 50 (box pressed) – SRP per cigar is $6.49
Toro: 6 x 50 – SRP per cigar is $6.99
Gigante: 6 x 60 – SRP per cigar is $7.49
