Reading Time: 2 minutes

Limited Edition “Vintage” and “M” Samplers Featured

As the holiday gift season approaches, Macanudo Cigars has announced its holiday gift collection for 2023. The iconic cigar brand is releasing two limited-edition samplers this year which are shipping this week.

The Macanudo Vintage Four Pack boasts releases from Macanudo’s 2010 and 2013 Vintage cigar series. Presented in a wooden slide-top box, the gift set includes two Macanudo Vintage 2010 cigars, the Toro Grande (6 5/8” x 54) and the Torpedo (6½” x 52). Both cigars are rolled in a proprietary 2010 Connecticut Shade wrapper, Honduran binder, and Honduran, Nicaraguan, and Dominican Piloto Cubano 94 fillers. The blend is described as “creamy with indulgent notes of wood and vanilla and a lightly herbaceous finish.”

The two Macanudo Vintage Maduro 2013 cigars included are the Toro Grande (6” x 54) and the Churchill (7” x 49). Rolled in a Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper from a 2013 crop, a Honduran OSA binder, and Dominican Piloto Cubano, Brazilian Mata Fina, and Nicaraguan Jalapa long fillers, the blend is described as “notes of leather and earth against a backdrop of wood and espresso.”

The Perfect Sampler features Macanudo’s top-selling flavor-infused smokes. The special 5-pack comes with three M by Macanudo Coffee and two M by Macanudo Espresso cigars in 6” x 50 Toro sizes. Blended with Indonesian wrappers, Philippine binder, and long-filler Nicaraguan tobaccos, M by Macanudo is described as “an aromatic smoke with notes of cedar, earth and spice with hints of single origin coffee,” while the Espresso issues “luscious flavors of café con leche and café macchiato.”
