Macanudo Vintage 2006 Robusto Cigar Review

This 5.5×50 stick features a dark tan wrapper with a soft smooth feel, minimal veins, tight invisible seams, triple cap and a gorgeous heavy, metal band along with a foot band, with a soapy aroma. First light reveals a slightly snug raw with good smoke output giving medium-full bodied flavors of a smooth, creamy textured leather with a pepper coming through on the long finish. The first third develops to a sweet caramel and cedar, carrying through the finish dropping most of the pepper, still with a smooth creamy texture. Draw is perfect, burn is good and smoke output is excellent. The 1/2 way point comes at 40 minutes, dropping the ash in a solid chunk and continuing the same great performance and flavor profile. Ending at 1:20 with an inch remaining, the whole cigar proved to be very consistent. Thank you very much to General Cigar for sending this for review!

    Weird, I just finished smoking a Vintage 1997 Maduro. Didn’t know they were going to put out a natural Vintage series. Great review!

    I have seen these on several sites, all “Out of Stock” or back-ordered and have not been able to find them at any brick-and-mortars near me, been waiting to try one. I noticed today that several sites have them in, I will be getting a 5-pack, smoke one or two now and hold the rest till maybe the summer. If they’re REALLY good, I will get some more as long as they are available. Was going to get one or two singles, but the review sold me on 5 at least. Thanks again for a great review!

    Wow. I guess I have the “mild macanudo” stereotype in my head- I would never think to try these, but they sound really good. Might give them a shot. Excellent review, as always.

    The first cigar I ever bought was the maduro vintage 1997 and now this one is the only macanudo I have yet to smoke.
