Macanudo Gold Label is a limited edition line of cigars featuring golden Connecticut Shade wrapper leaves from the first and second primings. Exposed to less sunlight allowing more natural sugars to remain, each leaf is extremely thin and remarkably supple with barely visible veins. This "Capa Especial" (special wrapper) has been combined with a Macanudo San Andrés binder, along with Piloto Cubano and Mexican filler tobaccos, also from the first and second primings. The result is a unique cigar with the traditional smoothness of Macanudo and an amazing natural sweetness rarely found in any other cigar in the marketplace. Certainly perfect for both novices and aficionados alike.
Macanudo is Latin American Spanish for "great" or "extraordinary." In fact, it began as a front mark or size by the makers of Punch Cuban cigars. Later, it became a distinct brand in Jamaica under the leadership of Ramón Cifuentes, the veteran maker of Partagas Cuban cigars. Then, acquired by General Cigar Company in 1969, makers of world-renowned premium brands CAO, La Gloria Cubana, Cohiba, and Partagas. Macanudo Cigars is the largest premium handmade brand in the US in terms of sales volumes. So try Macanudo Gold Labe cigars if you're lucky enough to find them in stock!
