At the 2018 IPCPR Trade Show, General Cigar Company introduced a tubo frontmark to be available in both its Macanudo Inspirado White and Macanudo Inspirado. Both tubo offerings are in the same robusto size as the standard parejo offerings. The Macanudo Inspirado White Tubo Robusto is a classic 5 x 50 size. Meanwhile, the Macanudo Black Tubo Robusto is slightly smaller, measuring 4 7/8 x 48.

The Macanudo Inspirado White features a proprietary Ecuadorian Connecticut Shade wrapper developed by General Cigar’s agronomists that has been aged six years. The blend also features an Indonesian binder. The fillers consist of Mexican San Andres and Nicaraguan Condega leaves aged four years as well as a Nicaraguan Jalapa leaf aged two years.

Meanwhile the new Macanudo Inspirado Black features a Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper over an Ecuadorian Sumatra binder and Nicaraguan filler featuring tobacco from proprietary seeds grown in Estelí that were uniquely fermented.

Both Tubo offerings come in 20-count boxes.
