General Cigar is bringing back the limited edition Macanudo Estate Reserve for another run. At the 2014 IPCPR Trade Show, Macanudo unveiled its Macanudo Estate Reserve 2014 – Limited Edition Jamaica. As the name indicates, this edition of the Estate Reserve pays homage to the Macanudo brand’s roots in Jamaica. While this marks the second consecutive year for the Macanudo Estate Reserve, the 2014 edition brings forward an entirely new blend.
The history of Macanudo can be traced to Jamaica where for the first 30 years, the brand was produced at a dedicated factory in Kingston until the year 2000. Paying homage to these roots, the Macanudo Estate Reserve prominently features what General Cigar calls a rare Jamaican leaf.
According to Alan Willner, vice president of marketing for General Cigar said, “To experience Macanudo Estate Reserve is to savor a tradition that spans nearly half a century, for this exceptional cigar offers a glimpse into the flavor and aroma that ignited the passion for one of the world’s most beloved cigars.”
Like last year’s Macanudo Estate Reserve 2014, each cigar will be housed in an individual coffin. There will be ten coffins per box and a total production of 1,800 boxes per vitola, which is less than 3,000 boxes per vitola for last year’s edition.
