Macanudo Maduro

Thanks to General Cigar for sending me a few of these to review. My first experience with premium cigars was with the Macanudo Vintage lines. They were mild, simple, well refined, but expensive. I do enjoy the Cru Royal from time to time, but for the most part I rarely smoke Macanudo’s. Armed with fine [...]
