Pre-light Experience

The Macanudo Inspirado Jamao Toro comes in cellophane and has a UPC sticker with the cigar information which tears in half when the cellophane is opened. The cigar has a single Macanudo Inspirado band. I weighed the cigar at 17.3 grams and the humidity as measured by the HumidiMeter Pro was 65.7%. Aromas from the wrapper included sweet bread and wood. From the foot, I could detect sweet hay and wood.

First Third

The first third gets going with wood that carries into the post draw. After a few puffs, some light baking spices are established through the retrohale. A delayed pepper comes into the post draw, moving up to medium strength as the cigar continues. Some time later, vegetal notes are present in the center of the retrohale. The pepper fades to a background note as dry hay joins the post draw. A mild chocolate is present on the retrohale approaching the halfway point.

Second Third

Spicy wood leads off the second third, followed by sweet tobacco and finishing with wood. As the second third settles in, creamy bread and spices define the retrohale, with wood and mild spices in the post draw. The profile remains stable for the remainder of the third.

Final Third

The last third begins with creamy wood and an astringent wood into the post draw. As the final third settles in, sweet tobacco makes up the center of the retrohale, as baking spices come back on the finish, lingering through the post draw. The profile remains consistent for the remainder of the third.


The burn started wavy in the first third, continuing into the second third. As the burn became lopsided in the second third. I performed a touch-up. The burn continued to be wavy for the remainder of the review with no more interventions required.

The draw was perfect, right in the ideal zone between open and resistant. I cut the cap with a v cutter.


The Macanudo Inspirado Jamao Toro was an overall pleasant flavor delivery which will likely satisfy many light to medium cigar smokers. I found the best combination of flavors to be through the second third with the first and last thirds being pleasant but not as dynamic. The draw was perfect while the burn was wavy through the review, requiring a single touch-up to correct. I find the price point on the Macanudo Inspirado Jamao Toro to be attractive, and I would likely smoke it again, but I don’t think the flavor profile did enough to make me actively seek it out in the future. Total smoking time was a value forward 2 hours and 40 minutes.
