You can’t drop by the General Cigar booth without stopping by the Macanudo section. This year we talked to Laurel Tilley the new and very limited, brick and mortar-only Macanudo Inspirado Palladium which features more of the tercio-aged tobacco like the kind that goes into the Cohiba Spectre. Next we check out the M Bourbon […]

Steve Abbot introduces us to the new M by Macanudo as we enter into Macanudo territory. It’s the first flavored Macanudo General has produced, and that flavor is coffee. Apparently there have been a lot of requests for an infused Macanudo, but until this year they just didn’t have the right blend for it. They […]
I think the last Macanudo we reviewed here on Stogie Review was the Macanudo Mao back at the end of 2016. It’s been even longer since I reviewed one. So when these samples of the new Macanudo Inspirado Red showed up at my door a few days ago, I decided on the spot I’d review […]
At long last, the marathon of IPCPR 2017 coverage is complete. It took a little longer than expected to get them all posted, but then, we filmed a few more interviews than we did last year. About a dozen more, in fact. That included a big expansion of videos covering products (and topics) related to, […]
We get started on our 2017 IPCPR tour of General Cigar’s offering with Steve Abbot, Brand Manager for Macanudo. He tells us about the new Macanudo Inspirado Black and Inspirado White, which follow after the Inspirado Orange with was launched in Europe back in 2015, and then last year in the U.S. The Orange is […]
In the cigar community, there is a phenomenon known as Macanudo. The Macanudo brand is one of the best sellers in the country, despite the fact that you probably know few people that smoke them. I suspect that the magic lies in name recognition and branding. Think about it, when a non-smoker wants to celebrate […]
And our IPCPR 2016 coverage is complete. It took us a little longer to get everything posted, due in large part to our decision to switch our gear and software out all at once. But it all worked out in the end. We didn’t talk to everyone we wanted to interview, but we never do. […]
In this video Ben talks to Victoria McKee Jaworski about the latest Macanudo, the Macanudo Mao. General Cigars has been keeping their tobacco scientists busy, because like the new Partagás Ramón y Ramón, the Mao uses Dominican tobacco from “regenerated” vintage 1960’s seeds. In addition to that the blend also includes Nicaraguan and Colombian leaf. […]
