This April, a new limited edition cigar from Macanudo is set to hit store shelves. The Macanudo Inspirado Tercio Aged is handcrafted at General Cigar Dominicana using the time-honored tradition of tercio aging.
Tercio aging is a laborious and time-consuming process wraps the cigar’s Dominican Piloto Cubano leaves in handmade bales made of royal palm bark that ages the tobacco in a unique environment for six months. The tercios round out the tobacco in a way that is not attainable through other methods, delivering deep nuances and heightened aroma. Those interested in seeing this process in action will be able to do so by scanning a QR code that will be on the Macanudo Inspirado Tercio Aged cigar bands and box, bringing up a video that shows the tercio-aging process.
Macanudo Inspirado Tercio Aged’s four-country blend includes a Mexican San Andreas leaf, an Indonesian binder and Colombian and Dominican filler. These tobaccos combine to create an intriguing medium-bodied smoke with rich, earthy notes, a smooth, white pepper finish and alluring aroma.
This cigar will be available in two sizes: a Toro (6 x 54) and Churchill (7 x 49). The suggested retail price per cigar will range from $10.49 to $10.99. Only 3,400 boxes of this cigar will be released in the U.S.
