There seems to be a big push for larger ring gauges in the cigar industry and cigar manufacturing companies are taking notice.
Macanudo, Americaâ€™s best-selling premium cigar brand, is adding two new large-ring frontmarks to its lineup.
Making their retail debut this week are Macanudo CafÃ© Gigante and Macanudo Maduro Gigante.
Created in response to consumer demand for large-ring offerings, both the Macanudo CafÃ© and Macanudo Maduro Gigante cigars measure 6â€ x 60.Â 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.
â€œMacanudo 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 CafÃ© and Maduro lines.Â With so many cigar smokers reaching for large-rings these days, the new Gigantes are sure to become top-sellers,â€ said Bill Chilian, director of marketing for Macanudo.
