Macanudo is the name of a cigar brand produced by the General Cigar Company in the Dominican Republic. It is noted for its mild flavor and light Connecticut shade wrapper, but is also available in a darker maduro wrapper.

History[edit]

Macanudo was originally the name of a frontmark produced in Jamaica by the makers of the Cuban brand of Punch. In 1971, General Cigar, which had acquired rights to the name outside of Cuba, introduced a completely distinct Macanudo as a brand unto itself. Developed in Jamaica under the leadership of Ramón Cifuentes, a veteran of Cuban cigar maker Partagas. Production of the Macanudo line under General Cigar shifted from Jamaica to the Dominican Republic in October 2000.
