Macanudo cigars were originally a Jamaican brand from the makers of the Cuban Punch. In 1971, General Cigar Company introduced a new cigar named Macanudo as a brand unto itself. Developed in Jamaica under the creative leadership of Ramon Cifuentes, the legendary Cuban cigar master of Partagas, Macanudo soon became the leading premium cigar and remains so today.

A quick Macanudo history lesson:
The Macanudo brand was launched in Jamaica in 1968 by the Fernando Palicio family, makers of the Cuban Punch brand. Macanudo cigars were originally made in Jamaica using a blend that included Jamaican tobaccos, right up until 2000, when General Cigar closed the Temple Hall cigar factory where the Macanudo line had been produced and moved production to the Dominican Republic. The Jamaican leaves were slowly phased out of the blend beginning in the 1990s, due to an increasing scarcity of quality Jamaican tobaccos. The Macanudo cigars of today are made using carefully cultivated Dominican tobaccos for the ultimate in smooth and creamy flavor.
