This Macanudo Café Portofino is a nostalgic cigar for me. It brings me back to my first premium cigar experience in Myrtle Beach with my best friend during the Summer of 2004. After a summer full of Philly Blunts, this thing tasted like a piece of heaven and since then, there was no going back. It was a perfect welcome into the world of cigars that I have come to love. The simple light flavor profile is just enough to get you in a good place while you kick back with some Jack Johnson and tune out the world.
