Macanudo Cru Royale

macanudo

As any smart company would, General Cigar Co. apparently listens to the market. When General Cigar held a poll amongst a group of premium cigar shop tobacconists, they noticed that the overwhelming majority of them expressed that medium-bodied cigars were by far the most popular in terms of sales. Representatives from General Cigar took note of this important trend, and then glanced at their Macanudo brand.

While Macanudo already filled the mild and full-bodied markets with their Cafe and 1968 lines, there was a void that needed attention in the medium-bodied category. After combining that noticeable void with the polling results from the various tobacconists, General Cigar decided it was time that Macanudo received its own medium-bodied stick. The process to achieve such a cigar was rather arduous, and it spanned a period of approximately 18 months. A plethora of blends were created and tested by members of General Cigar until they narrowed them down to some finalists. Those final blends were tested by consumers, and the Macanudo Cru Royale was finally born.

The winning recipe for the Cru Royale features a filler blend of Dominican, Nicaraguan, and Brazilian Mata Fina tobaccos. The binder is of the Dominican La Vega Especial variety. Finally, an Ecuadorian Habano Seed wrapper tops it all off. The use of an Ecuadorian wrapper is something new for a Macanudo, as the brand usually employs Connecticut wrappers. The Cru Royale will be offered in four sizes: the 5 x 50 Robusto, the 6 x 54 Toro, the 6 x 60 Gigante, and the 6 1/2x 42 Lonsdale.

It should be quite interesting to see how General Cigar did in their venture into new territory for Macanudo. Luckily, the line is set to be priced at a rather reasonable rate, with the following prices: $5.79 for a Robusto, $6.49 for a Toro, $6.99 for a Gigante, and $5.79 for a Lonsdale. If you are a Macanudo fan and can't wait to try this medium-bodied line, you will not have to wait long, as it is set to hit stores sometime in October.

That is all the new releases we have for today, but make sure to keep checking back in the future for more. Have a great weekend!
