If you are old enough to remember when Macanudos were made in Jamaica, then this year, the newest Macanudo is a true throwback.  Once Cuban tobacco became verboten, companies looked to tobaccos from other countries and Jamaica was one of them.  For 30 years, Macanudo was made in Jamaica but that factory closed in 2000.  This year, as an homage to its roots, the Macanudo Estate Reserve is coming out using a special Jamaican aged tobacco.  The wrapper is a 10-year-old Connecticut leaf with a Mexican binder delivering a creamy medium-bodied smoke.  This is not your typical Macanudo in that it is a super premium and carries that type of price tag.  Each cigar comes in a wooden coffin and there will only be 1800 boxes of ten for each of the three sizes – Belicoso at 6” x 57 for $18, Churchill 7” x 50 for $17 and the Robusto at 5” x 50 for $16.  They should be in stock any day now.
