Macanudo Unveils Limited Edition Vintage Maduro 2013: A Testament to Ideal Growing Conditions
Temperature, sun hours and rainfall all play a part in growing tobacco. In 2013, the Connecticut River Valley had higher temperatures and more rainfall than other years. This resulted in the ideal climate for broadleaf tobacco. Macanudo is now using some of the harvest for a limited edition release.
The Macanudo Vintage Maduro 2013 comes in three sizes, a robusto, toro grande and Churchill with this special Connecticut Broadleaf as a wrapper over an Honduran OSA binder. The filler is Brazilian Mata Fina, Dominican Piloto Cubano and Nicaraguan tobacco from Jalapa.
“The growing season in 2013 was one of the best I’ve ever seen,” said Ernest Gocaj, director of tobacco procurement for General Cigar Co., in a press release. “The crop was exceptional at harvest, which meant that we had to be obsessive when it came to monitoring the tobacco during the eight-week curing process. That’s how important curing is. Our hard work paid off because we ultimately brought the tobacco’s very best attributes to life.”
