Macanudo Gold Label Duke of York cigars are handcrafted with golden, elegantly thin wrapper leaves from the 1st and 2nd primings of a specially-cured Connecticut Shade crop. The smoke is even milder and smoother in flavor than the regular Macanudo cigars with a succulent, natural sweetness.
Good Cigar w/ nice appearance, mild smoke w/ very good draw. Unique nutty flavor that finished a little metallic. Price high for the value. Many better smokes available for less. Score 86
Im new to the world of cigars, so Ive taken more to the mild to medium cigars. Ive tried many and I have to say that I loved and enjoyed the Macanudo gold. Im not sure what all the correct terminology I should be useing but I really enjoyed it, it didnt sting my tounge, every puff was easy and people around me who do not smoke at all told me that my cigar smelled great. I can only afford to buy 2-3 at a time , I only wish it was a little cheaper to buy a box but I can understand why the price is what it is.
Great taste, very consistent.
I don't know what the hype is all about. This cigar bruned well and had good draw but the taste was terrible. Taste is the most important thing to me and this cigar was not smooth and did not have any particular taste other than burning pepper, bad after taste, harsh smoke and no flavor. I like the 54 rings so I went with one of these and left it in the humodor for four months. After smoking it I am glad I didn't buy more than one!
