“A balance of art and science, Macanudo Inspirado Black is part inspiration and part experimentation. Using a new, innovative process, our Connecticut Broadleaf plants underwent special cultural practices, leaving the leaves to ripen on the stalk. Featuring proprietary seeds grown in Estelí, it’s a uniquely fermented blend that produces the utmost in strength and flavor. The result is a beautiful balance of bold, peppery notes intertwined with a subtle undertone of sweet earth.” From the website of Macanudo.

By far my favorite cigar. A subtle but sweet caramel flavor and I swear I get coffee flavor. Blends perfect with a cup of black, dark roast columbian coffee. And a big thanks to Tim for the great customer service! Highly recommend these.

Very tasty from light up. Good even burn. Got some pepper notes in the 2nd third. Love the taste of this dark wrapper. Very smooth finish. Great smoke time and below $6… total winner!
I’ve smoked Macanudos for years, but this was my first time trying this particular cigar. I didn’t care much for this one due to the full bodied flavor, but if you like full bodied cigars, it’s definitely worth picking one up and giving it a whirl. If you tend to like lighter cigars, I’d look at different Macanudos that might be more to your liking.

This cigar is really good. Very dark wrapper, heavy cigar with a moist solid feel to it. I’ve noticed the 5×50 taste slightly different than the 5×54. The 54 has more black pepper and the 50 is a strait up cinnamon stick. I’ve smoke 5 of these and they all needed a tunnel tool because the draw is tight and the smoke output is decreased which does get better half way through. The pepper retro hale lingers in your nostrils. It reminds me of eating really fresh sushi with wasabi. The final third has increased nicotine levels. I like stronger cigars, so I’ve never been much into Macanudo, but this one is now in my favorites list, I’m keeping some in my humidor at all times now. Pretty even burn but did need a couple touch ups in the first third. There’s also a slight chocolate in some of the puffs.

Capped cracked when cut,but was able to fix. Nice aroma from the smoke. Good burn & draw from start to finish with no touch up’s required. Macanudo list this cigar as full bodied,but I found it to be medium body and medium/full by the final 3rd at best. My experience with this cigar was ok. I didn’t like it nor dislike it. You could smoke this cigar anytime of the day and enjoy it.
