“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.

This thing is one of my new favorite cigars. Great burn and construction. I got notes of black pepper (Not overpowering though like you might think because of the CT broadleaf) cocoa, cedar, coffee and a little bit of anise. The coffee note is almost as sweet as Kahlua on the retrohale. It also leaves a nice tingling sensation on the tongue. Great stick!

Always have 5 in my humidor along with the red. One of my go to smoke for nighttime.
I like the flavor of this one. Dark and flavorful but not overwhelming. Would buy more.
This is my favorite out of this series. It has a nice pepper or spice to it. Burns evenly down to the last third. Notes of coffee and cedar. Paired great with a glass of wild turkey.

This macanudo is full of cinnamon from the start to the end. Coffee and a slight pepper, unique flavor profile. If you’re looking for nicotine, this cigar packs a punch. Fairly even burn, good construction, slightly tight draw on some. Heavy weight to it, and solid like a rock. One of my new favorites.
