Macanudo Inspirado White cigars are one of two "inspired" blends released in 2017 that marked another milestone in the creative evolution of this internationally-acclaimed cigar brand. Although the original Macanudo Café selection is still considered one of the best mild introductory cigars for new cigar smokers, the brand has reached out to cigar smokers of every breed with a number of more multifaceted cigars, and according to the fine folks at General Cigar, "Cigar lovers who now see Macanudo in a new light should be prepared to be wowed yet again."
Macanudo White moves away from its traditional past by using a recipe of Nicaraguan Condega and Mexican San Andres long-filler leaves, each aged for 4 years to deliver sweetness and strength, plus a two-year-aged Nicaraguan Jalapa leaf for some extra earthy-spicy depth, while an Indonesian binder supplies an enticing aroma. The topper is a lustrous, proprietary Ecuadoran Connecticut wrapper aged six years and refined to a buttery shade of gold. The final result is a Macanudo cigar that's not only striking in appearance, but fully engages the palate in perfect balance.
