Macanudo Cafe Hyde Park


Macanudo Cafe Hyde Park

Back in the day, I smoked two or three Macanudo Portofino's a week, but it's probably been 10 years since the last one. I was excited to get this cigar in a sampler a while back. You can grab a single from Cigar.com for $7.00.

I've always been impressed by the amazing wrappers on Macanudo cigars. This shade grown wrapper is oily, seamless and practically vein free. Nice!

Initially there's a big blast of mild bodied sweet cream and spicy cedar. Those flavors are followed by brown sugar, rich tobacco, toast, fruit, nuts and oak with a coffee and cream finish.

Add a 70 minute smoking time into the mix here and we have a pretty nice cigar.
