Tasting Note

The Macanudo Inspirado line started out as a European exclusive, but eventually made its way to the United States. Once it hit stateside, brand owner General Cigar created two versions: the Black, for catalogs and the Orange, for brick-and-mortar shops. In the context of the Macanudo brand, the Inspirado Orange is far more full bodied than traditional Macanudos. For General, Inspirado Orange is to represent a new chapter in Macanudo's story and an evolution of sorts. Previous attempts to bring new Macanudos to the market haven't always been successful, but this is the most ambitious Macanudo to date. Brand history aside, it's simply a great cigar that produces a rich, buttery smoke enriched by leather and mesquite qualities and a bright finish of almonds and black pepper.
