Big thank you to Cigar World and Macanudo for the hook up with this beautiful cigar well before its release date. This is a limited edition cigar collection that will be released to commemorate Macanudo’s 45th anniversary. I was so eager to smoke and review these cigars. The wrapper is a stunning Connecticut with barely visible leaf lines. There are bands that make statements, this is one of them. Classy and bold but not overdone. Laced in gold with company logo and edition “Estate Reserve”. There is also a second band under the first that says “Limited Edition”. This cigar smells amazing, sweet and soft and oh so inviting. Cold draw has the same attributes.
Overall this is an absolute stunner. Super creamy and smooth with fantastic wood and spice notes that don’t overpower. Instead they play off each other very well. The construction was bordering on perfection. I highly suggest picking this up when released in October. Price will match the quality for sure. Don’t miss your chance to smoke these as they are limited to 3,000 boxes per size and then they are being discontinued.
