There seems to be a big push for larger ring gauges in the cigar industry and cigar manufacturing companies are taking notice.
Macanudo, America’s best-selling premium cigar brand, is adding two new large-ring frontmarks to its lineup.
Making their retail debut this week are Macanudo Café Gigante and Macanudo Maduro Gigante.
Created in response to consumer demand for large-ring offerings, both the Macanudo Café and Macanudo Maduro Gigante cigars measure 6” x 60. Each will be packed in a 20-count box and sold for an SRP per cigar of $7.99, or $159.80, SRP per box.
“Macanudo fans have told us they get more bang for the buck out of large ring cigars, so we came out with the Gigante frontmark to round out the Café and Maduro lines. With so many cigar smokers reaching for large-rings these days, the new Gigantes are sure to become top-sellers,” said Bill Chilian, director of marketing for Macanudo.
