They also have become notably intriguing and pleasant for the “new smoker” generation. Macanudo Café cigars are created by using a golden silky US Connecticut Shade wrapper that has been aged for 3 years. This process allows for a smooth and creamy smoke. These exquisite wrappers are combined with a Mexican binder and a Dominican-Mexican filler blend to produce a mild body, yet flavorful cigar that can be enjoyed by anyone. At Mike’s Cigars, we are proud to offer the standard Macanudo line, as well as the true Cafe line. Both the standard and café line are produced exclusively by General Cigar, for Mike’s Cigars. Macanudo cigars are recognized as the best selling cigar brand in America. Originated in Jamaica (1968), Macanudos were introduced to the US market by General Cigar in 1971. They have been widely known for their mild flavor and body. Due to unfavorable conditions in Jamaica such as the weather, Macanudo cigars are now produced in the Dominican Republic. All Macanudo cigars are made with the finest Connecticut shade wrappers, mild yet flavorful, twice-aged Dominican fillers, and binders grown in the San Andres Valley of Mexico. These great cigars are perfect for both men and women because of the smooth and robust taste. Also, most importantly they are best known for their consistency. Macanudo was the first cigar to capitulate on the American consumer tendency towards mellow flavors and consistent quality. The General cigar Corp. recognized the need to preserve consistency in order to maintain customer loyalty, and the company established a unique way to guarantee this consistency. The traditional way to achieve this goal until then was to ensure blend uniformity by way of introducing subtle variations in measurement in order to compensate for tobacco produce flavor fluctuations between different year’s crops. This is obviously not an accurate science but if you’re good at it you can mask small mutations by ‘blending’. In the long run you are going to end up chasing and re-chasing the original taste with appreciable customer grief. The solution devised by General Cigar was unprecedented and very expensive! Instead of applying traditional cures for blend variations they decided to go for the bank by securing large quantities of tobacco, procuring multi year harvests at one time, while using their own vast lands in Connecticut to produce the best shade wrapper in the world. This method required very deep pockets and General utilized their size advantage to the limit, creating the most popular cigar in the process.
