Macanudo is the world's most popular premium cigar. Always aromatic, flavorful, and easy to draw, many of their cigar blends are made with triple-fermented tobaccos for extra smoothness. Whether you like silky Connecticut wrapped cigars or heavy hitting maduros, Macanudo has exactly what you are looking for in a premium cigar, for sale at prices anyone can afford. Macanudo Cigars are manufactured in Santiago, Dominican Republic. Currently the Macanudo brand is under the production umbrella of General Cigars at the Tabacalera de Garcia factory. These handmade beauties have been created in the Dominican Republic since 2000.
Before General Cigar became the official manufacturer of Macanudo Cigars, it helps to go back a little further to the Cullman family. The Cullman's cigar-making history starts with Ferdinand Cullman who immigrated to the U.S. in 1848. Ferdinand began making cigars, and eventually Ferdinand's son Joseph joined him. Ironically, their cigars did not fare as well as the cigars that Joseph's son, Joseph Cullman Jr. made after he began planting Cuban-seed tobacco on his Connecticut plantation. Though his father was cynical about growing tobacco in Connecticut, Joseph Cullman Jr. had great success. The result was a shade-grown wrapper leaf with a light brown color, silky feel and a marvelously mild flavor and aroma. This rare, Connecticut wrapper leaf changed everything. However, the man who really took Macanudo cigars to true heights of popularity was Joseph Jr.'s son, Edgar Cullman. Edgar learned the business literally from the ground up. He studied everything from the planting and cultivation of tobacco to rolling cigars. Now all Edgar needed was a partner to make the cigars and a company to market them. So, in 1960 Edgar bought General Cigar Company, and in 1968 he purchased Macanudo cigars, which at that time were being made by a small tabacalera in Jamaica.
The cigars would be blended with two to three year-aged Dominican and Jamaican tobaccos bound in a San Andres-grown Mexican leaf and rolled in the exceptional Connecticut shade leaf that Edgar's father had developed. To make sure the cigars were top-grade, Cullman hired Ramon Cifuentes of Cuban Partagas cigars fame who had left Cuba after the Revolution. The cigars were finally introduced to the market in 1971, and three years later, Ramon's protégé and future president of General Cigar Corp., Daniel Nuñez came onboard. Nuñez eventually became responsible for creating a number of line extensions for the company such as the Vintage Series, Maduro, and Robust among others.
Macanudo cigars are no longer made in Jamaica nor with Jamaican tobaccos. Instead, they now have multiple lines in their repertoire. With such a rich history, massive popularity, and a lineup of modern blends mixed with their traditional offerings, no one can deny why Macanudo is the industry's leader. Each cigar is loved by millions and the brand is known by every stogie head around the world. The only question that remains is why haven't you picked up yours yet?
As mentioned above Macanudo’s deep history in the cigar world is extensive. These classic lines are what built the MAC brand to what it is today: perfectly aged tobacco rolled to perfection with pride by the industry’s top cigar master blenders.
