Macanudo Inspirado Green
This is a cigar review of a Macanudo Inspirado Green by Macanudo Cigars. The size chosen for this review is the robusto. This cigar is composed of a Brazilian Arapirica wrapper followed by a blend of tobaccos from Indonesia, Columbia and the Dominican Republic. This is a full bodied smoke that retails for $5.52. They make these in 3 sizes (Robusto, Toro, Churchill) and they will be on sale beginning June 2020!
This Macanudo Inspirado Green has marbled milk chocolate colored wrapper followed by a few minor veins and visible yet tight seams. The band is green and silver and follows the same Inspirado branding.
Aroma – Smoked Wood and Sweet Cocoa
Type of Cut – Straight
Cold Draw – Earth and Wood
First third – Earth, pepper and wood all start this stick off nicely on the palate. As this warms up the pepper and earth become the dominant notes. Some smoky wood notes develop about halfway through the third with the pepper and earth pounding the palate on the finish. The cigar is full bodied with a sharp burn and solid ash that holds through the third.
Second Third – The Wood, earth and spice all develop in this third. There is a dark chocolate like note that integrates in here as well, which is a welcome change from the first third. The ash falls at the beginning of the third. The body remains full and burn sharp.
Final Third – The cocoa mixes with the spice and earth here as the primary notes with the pepper dying off turning this into a medium plus bodied smoke. The burn remains sharp.
- Bourbon – Woodford Reserve
- Scotch – Laphroaig
- Irish Whiskey – Jameson
This Macanudo Inspirado Green had a nice blend of secondary notes as the primaries here such as earth and pepper. The smoked woody notes became the underlying theme of the smoke, but that first third was definitely a different experience from what I was expecting. I liked the cocoa and spice intertwined in giving this cigar a nice complexity level. I would have this smoke again and think any cigar lover would enjoy this.
