General Cigar Company will soon be shipping the Macanudo Vintage 2010. The tobaccos used for the cigars are considered exceptional tobaccos due to the optimal growing conditions the crops experienced that harvest. The record high temperatures in the Connecticut River Valley were the main ingredient for such a great crop. The tobacco grown in such conditions produced a golden brown Connecticut shade wrapper. The Connecticut wrapper has been aged for 10 years. The cigars binder is a Nicaraguan leaf, with a three-country filler from Dominican Piloto Cubano 94 ( General Cigar says it’s their proprietary tobacco), Nicaraguan, and Honduras. The fillers have all been aged for three to five years. The Cigars are then wrapped in cedar to keep the golden wrappers safe and to keep in the flavor.
The Macanudo Vintage 2010 will be available in three sizes. A 52 by 158mm (6.25″) Torpedo, a 54 by 168mm (6.625″) Toro Grande, and the 48 by 184mm (7.25″) Churchill. All three sizes will come packaged in 20-count boxes. MSRP will range between $11.99-$12.29 per stick, depending on size. The Vintage 2010 is scheduled for August 2021.
