Macanudo Gold Label

A wonderful seasonal cigar from the biggest name in cigars.

Macanudo Gold Label is a limited-edition line of Macanudo cigars that adds a new taste to America’s best-selling premium cigar brand. The wrapper is Golden Connecticut shade, culled from the first and second primings, the filler is Cuban-seed Dominican and Mexican. Smooth, consistent, and an unusual lemony sweetness that’s hard to describe.

Customer Reviews of “Macanudo Gold Label”
Picked up a tubo or two (Macanudo Gold Label) to take on vacation in a 42 ring gauge. LOVED them. Mild, sweet, tasty, intoxicating, in short....a perfect cigar if you love mild. Then went out and bought some 50 or 52 ring gauge to continue my love affair and it just was not the same. Still good, but not the same. Obviously it must be the beautiful golden wrapper that gives more flavor in the smaller gauge. I recommend the smaller ring gauges unequivocally-- simply magnificent.

The Mac Crystal (Macanudo Gold Label) is great. Very mild and typical of the Mac Gold Label.

The Macanudo Gold Label reminded me why I began smoking cigars in the first place.
DM of Adrian, GA
Picked one up today and I really enjoyed this cigar. Nice and mild and towards the end became a little peppery. Nothing crazy though. Very enjoyable.

Couldn't be happier macanudo gold label are one of my favorite mild cigars out there and not to mention the deal makes this a no brainier...Plus the shipping was extremely fast just in time for the holidays thanks so much cigar international will continue to be the only place on the web where my family and I purchase cigars
JB of Silver Creek, NY
Very easy to light despite the large ring gauge. Excellent construction, draw and burn. Very easy draw with voluminous smoke output. Medium weight smoke with a slight creamy texture on the palate. Mild strength with medium flavors. Flavors of sweet cream, biscuit and icing with lingering hints of honey, cedar and hay on the short finish. No spice and no bitterness. Despite it's mild profile, the smooth blending and flavors involved make this a very enjoyable and engaging experience. Cigar remains consistent from beginning to end.

I have to say up front I had never smoked a Macanudo until recently. I got a freebie with a purchase I made of other cigars. It was as I expected. A thoroughly mild cigar. I am just not a fan of mild cigars and I found it weak for my taste...
DM of ETTERS, PA
I recently bought a tin of the Ascots. They are nice little cigars. Good for when I don't have a lot of time. Smooth with a nice flavor. A little pricey, but worth it.
BW of Pomona, CA
After I let it set for a couple of days it had a very interesting taste. Pleasant in aroma and very smooth. I enjoyed it.
EW of Virginia Beach, VA
The gold label is a great stick. I've always been a fan of the Macanudo brand as a 'go-to' cigar when I'm looking for something mild. The gold label is sweeter and creamier than the original and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys a mild cigar.
PS of Columbus, OH
This is one of my favorite go to cigars. It always has a nice even pull and the right flavor to compliment any drink or after dinner smoke.
KB of FORT HOOD, TX
Consistent and mild. Never disappoints.

Macanudo Gold

Posted by Steve R
I got back to my apartment around 9pm last night and headed straight for the laundry room to do a few loads of wash. Wouldn’t you know it, somebody got there 1 minute before I did and managed to monopolize both washers before I could get a glimpse of his or her face. ONE LOUSY MINUTE! So, I had some time to spare and decided to sit outside with a cigar and glass of lemonade. The smoke of choice, Macanudo Gold Lord Nelson, a sweet smelling churchill that I picked up at a dinner with General Cigar 2 weeks ago (the Cohiba XV box was empty…) Having never tried a Mac Gold, this one piqued my interest.

The name Macanudo Gold fits this cigar to the ‘T’. The wrapper is a golden Connecticut shade leaf with a burl-like gradient and a pleasantly mild aroma. With a snip and a quick, easy light I was ready to go. First impression: smooth. Very smooth in fact, but very mellow. An extremely loose draw made it difficult to pick up any definitive flavors, but I did find one unique characteristic that seemed quite unusual. Ever add a ton of salt and pepper to your plain white rice to make it not so plain? Well, it seems like that’s what was done with this cigar. There was a sweet saltiness to it, a flavor I find common in most candelas. Also, each puff ended with a slight pepperiness, almost like freshly cracked black pepper. These flavors were pleasant, but I wanted more, and so I puffed on into the night. Aside from the flavor, the loose draw also affected the production of smoke. Normally, I feel like I am sitting in a thick, fluffy smoke cloud, I love that. Instead, I felt like I was simply seeing my breath on a cold winter day. After breaking the midway point, I decided to check the washers. I returned to my cigar just shy of 10 minutes later, two loads of laundry are in and my cigar is amazingly still lit. To my delight, the existing sweetness mingled with a twist that I can only explain as citrusy. This didn’t last long, but considering how straightforward and one-dimensional this Churchill has been since lighting, it was a welcome change, no matter how short. On the upside, the ash was light grey and held strong for a good 1.5 inches before I helped it off the cigar each time. Also, the burn was slow and even, and despite my furious ‘puffing pace’, the flavor did not turn bitter or harsh toward the end. In the end, I wanted to nub this cigar, but didn’t see the point. The flavor showed no sign of building or changing, so I decided to put it down with about 2 inches to go and head inside.

That’s about it. Despite the overly loose draw, Macanudo Gold is a good cigar. Consistent in flavor, slow burning, super mild and buttery smooth…one that would appeal to most. That’s why Macanudo is the number one selling cigar in America. However, it doesn’t meet my personal (critical) tastes and I don’t see myself craving one in the immediate future. Gimme gusto…rich, robust layers of flavor complemented by a subtle buzz. Now we’re talking.
