The overall conclusion of the Inspirado Red Robusto is that this is a well priced cigar delivering flavors some Equadorian Habano cigars much pricier simply cannot compete with. Given the $6 price point, this is worth at least a fiver to start with.
Dressed in Ecuadoran Habano ligero and blended with rarefied tobaccos including twelve-year aged Nicaraguan Ometepe, ten-year aged Honduran Jamastran and five-year-aged Nicaraguan Esteli, Macanudo Inspirado Red has a hearty Nicaraguan Jalapa binder. Enticing notes of pepper and spice reign, transcending the experience of Central American tobaccos to the point of sublime.
I feel like the Macanudo Inspirado White Robusto truly stood out as an interesting cigar with great flavor complexity. I would not hesitate to recommend this cigar to a wide array of cigar smokers, and will be adding it to my purchase list for 2018.
2018 marks a major milestone for Macanudo, as the brand commemorates its 50th anniversary. Throughout the year, the brand will unleash a flurry of activity to usher in its next 50 years. Exciting and unexpected new product launches, special events and retail promotions are set to kick off this month, under the banner of The 50 Days of Macanudo.
The flavor profile was direct and in a way, as expected of a good tasting broadleaf cigar. In my opinion, General Cigar's shift in bolder marketing and cigar flavor profile of Macanudo is a win, as this will most likely gain popularity of most American smokers who enjoys fuller body and flavors.
Macanudo Inspirado Orange will be available only through brick and mortar cigar shops, and Macanudo Inspirado Black will be available through internet and catalog retailers exclusively. The collections are presented in 20 count boxes.
