Macanudo cigar contest winnerMacanudo cigar contest winner

Beginning earlier this year, Macanudo, among the most recognized premium cigar brands in the world, updated its look for the first time in nearly 50 years! The cigars, originally known for their unique, Jamaican production, have retained their smooth and approachable blends, but now offer a more modern vibe. We especially appreciate the tweaking of the logo’s drapery, now forming a distinct “M” shape (nice touch!).

  • Atlantic Cigar Sale

Among the changes are the classic Macanudo Maduro cigars, featuring updated boxes for the modern smoker – see details below on how you can enter to win these cigars this week!

Grand prize

We will have TWO grand prize winners this week! Both will receive a full box of 25 Macanudo Maduro cigars in the classic 5½ x 49 robusto size. Contrasting from the bolder-is-better strategy of today’s sea of “pepper bomb” smokes, the Macanudo Maduro pulls back on the reins to offer a mild, maduro experience. Perfect for a morning or afternoon smoke, this Maduro makes use of diverse blend, topped with a dark Connecticut Broadleaf maduro wrapper that showcases buttery smooth, subtle, and complex notes that make for the ultimate morning coffee pairing!
