Macanudo introduced a new regular line this year at the PCA trade show in Las Vegas called the Macanudo Emissary España.  The Macanudo Emissary‘s first run is called the España and features a special tobacco grown in Spain for this cigar. Here is what Macanudo had to say about the tobacco:

Macanudo Emissary España uses a harmonious five-country blend highlighted by a Havana seed grown near the town of Riolobos, Spain. The region’s rocky soil and Mediterranean climate yield a rich tobacco that cannot be replicated. Grown near olive trees and pepper fields used for paprika, the tobacco is characterized by thick, oily leaves from the warm, dry summer days and mild nights. When combined with the rocky soil, the result is tobacco with intensity and complexity.

This new blend contains many well aged tobaccos including tobaccos for the filler with 5 year aged Dominican Piloto, 6 year aged Nicaraguan, and 5 year aged Colombian tobacco.  The binder uses a 6 year aged Nicaraguan tobacco from Condega and a wrapper that is a 5 year aged Connecticut Broadleaf Claro grown in Connecticut.  The blend is constructed to deliver a smoking experience that Europeans cigar smokers prefer.
