Wrapper: Connecticut Broadleaf. Filler: Dominican (Piloto Cubano), Mexican. Binder: Connecticut. Country of Manufacture: Dominican Republic. Factory Name: General Cigar Dominicana. -- The History: Introduced in the 1970s, Macanudo Maduro cigars were made with the choicest wrapper leaves grown in the San Andrés Tuxtla Valley of Mexico. In response to the growing demand for full-flavored cigars, an even richer Macanudo Maduro was developed and introduced in 1999. The cigar: Today, Macanudo Maduro cigars are crafted in the Dominican Republic with the very best Connecticut Broadleaf wrappers. Even grainier, oilier and more flavorful than the Maduro wrapper leaves that were grown for Macanudo in the San Andrés Tuxtla Valley, the Maduro wrappers now used by Macanudo are truly exceptional. In fact, only two of the many tobacco farms in the Connecticut River Valley yield Broadleaf tobacco leaves that meet the high standards for Macanudo Maduro. The experience: Like a rare port wine, a Macanudo Maduro has a lingering, rich flavor that lends itself to moments of the most tasteful relaxation.
