Complex, Bold, and Totally Satisfying.
Macanudo is well-known to aficionados near and far, and is the best-selling brand in the United States. The entire Macanudo portfolio can be accurately described as consistent, flavorful, and complex, yet accessible to enthusiasts with a wide range of palates.
Inspirado Black got its start years ago, as an alternative for enthusiasts seeking a bolder, more intense blend. Macanudo has revamped this classic to offer a new option for today's aficionados seeking more from their cigar experience.
A dark Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper encases an Ecuador Sumatra binder and Nicaraguan long-fillers for a rich aroma and truly unique flavor profile. Notes of spice, dried fruit, and sweet earth envelop the palate, making this cigar enjoyable from head to foot. Full-bodied and brimming with luxurious nuances, Inspirado Black is exactly the cigar you’ve been looking for.
A Bold Blend From Macanudo
You’d be hard pressed to find an enthusiast who hasn’t sampled one of Macanudo’s many blends. You’d be even more hard pressed to find one who hasn’t at least heard of the brand during its nearly 50 year run. The brand started out in Jamaica in the late 60s, but moved to the Dominican Republic a few years later where it set down permanent roots. At first, the cigars were mellow and packed with flavor, making them accessible to a wide variety of palates. But as time progressed, so did enthusiasts Tastes. And, to keep up with demand, Macanudo began blending fuller-bodied cigars with bolder tasting notes.
Macanudo’s latest creation may be one of its most innovative to date. Inspirado Black comes dressed in a dark and oily Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper which was ripened on the stalk. At the cigar’s core you’ll find a proprietary blend of fermented tobaccos grown in Estelí, Nicaragua. Well-constructed, this cigar has a rustic quality to it. But what really grabs me is the aroma coming from the tobaccos in this premium. They have an intoxicating smell of molasses and earth, reminding me of dried cherries. As soon as the cigar is lit, the flavor profile is striking, with notes of pepper, hay, and dried fruit at the finish. As the cigar progresses, the pepper nuances intensify, but they’re not overwhelming and the finish is nice and long. This may be my new favorite blend from Macanudo, simply because it offers so much complexity and spice. I would urge everyone to try Inspirado Black, but do so after a good meal. This cigar’s boldness took me a little off guard, but that’s not to say I didn’t enjoy the hell out of it.
