Macassar— A truly Different Type of Cohiba Cigar
General Cigar Company, one of the largest manufacturers of premium cigars in the world, and home to such famous brands as Macanudo, Partagas, Punch, and Hoyo de Monterrey, just to name a few, proudly introduces Cohiba Macassar, an ultra-premium masterpiece that draws its inspiration from the rare, hard to procure Indonesian ebony wood that bears the same name. General says that all the premium tobaccos featured in the Cohiba Macassar blend are proprietary to the company and have undergone an extensive aging process.
Macassar comes dressed in a Connecticut Havano wrapper that cloaks a Connecticut broadleaf binder and a combination of Dominican and Nicaraguan fillers that have been aged four years, except for the broadleaf binder, which was aged for six years. To complete this gourmet cigar recipe, the tobaccos spend their final year in fragrant rum barrels
The wrapper of Cohiba Macassar is also grown in a specific area of the fertile Connecticut River Valley, which imparts a unique spicy sweetness into the tobacco leaf. The wrapper leaves from this region then undergo additional sorting and grading to make sure that every leaf displays the perfect shade and even color before being selected for the blend.
Cohiba Macassar is available in three popular big ring sizes sizes: Toro Grande, at 6 inches by 52 ring Gigante, at 6 by 60, and Double Corona at 7.25 x 54. Each vitola ships in a stunning, 10-count box that’s crafted with layers of this fine Macassar Ebony wood.
The finished product is a medium body blend that displays a slow even burn and an effortless draw while providing the cigar aficionado with tantalizing flavors of wood, white pepper, cedar, and coffee, backed by a smoky vanilla sweetness imparted from the deeply fermented rum barrels
To assure that you won’t be deprived of this exceptional line of ultra-premium cigars, this is not a limited-edition release, but rather a regular-production addition to the renowned Cohiba brand portfolio.
