Macanudo Gold Label Ascot (10) cigars are limited-edition premium cigars made with the smoothest, fairest Connecticut Shade Grown wrappers for a lighter, more mellow flavor. Using only the 1st & 2nd priming leaves, the wrappers ripen to golden patina with a naturally sweet taste. The Dominican Piloto Cubano & Mexican fillers are 1998 vintage, and the Mexican San Andrean binder is also from the 2 lowest primings. Absolutely the sweetest and mildest Macanudo cigars ever blended. Perfect for that first cigar of the day!
Too Mild. I prefer a mild cigar like the Ascot but this Gold one is too mild. It does taste like grass when there is any flavor at all. Might be OK for infusing with flavor or for a lady starting out...01
