Macanudo Crü Royale Toro

When this cigar was introduced, I was hesitant to even bother getting one. I have smoke Macanudo cigars, but they are not my cup of tea, than I found out that they were made by Benji Menendez. Menendez is such an important figure in General Cigars, and cigars in general, that I thought I should give it a try. The Macanudo Crü Royale comes covered in a dark oily Ecuadorian Habano wrapper, with a Dominican binder, and fillers from the Dominican Republic, Brazil, and Nicaragua.

The cigar itself is made incredibly well and the aroma is of earth and cedar. From the beginning to the end of the smoke, the flavor profile remains consistent with notes of chocolate, espresso, cedar, and earth, but is really pleasant. When I got done with this cigars, I was actually surprised and felt I should apologize to General Cigars for my lack of faith. I wouldn’t ever put this cigar in my humidor, but I am glad I tried it. I give this cigar an 87, and if offered it by someone, I would truly enjoy it. I will say, this is the best new release Macanudo has had since I have been following cigars.
