Macanudo Hyde Park Café


Consider the greatness of the Macanudo Hyde Park Café. Nearly a million are made every year, yet they are the very model of consistency. Always smooth, always mild, with a flavor profile smacking of vanilla, bread and sweet spice. A perfect morning smoke and a perfect starter cigar. You can find Macanudos in most smoke shops, even in many convenience stores that have expanded into cigars. The Hyde Park is among the thicker sizes in the brand, measuring 5 1/2 by 49, with a reasonable price.
