Today Brian and I are reviewing the Macanudo 1968. This cigar was introduced in 2008 as Macanudo’s first real attempt at producing a full-bodied cigar. To help get the word out about this cigar Macanudo hosted hundreds of events nationwide where free samples of the 1968 were given out free. According to my Perelman’s Pocket Cyclopedia of Cigars over 60,000 samples were handed out at these events. So let’s see what our take is on this cigar.
Overall we’d have to say that the Macanudo 1968 was a fairly enjoyable cigar. However, we feel they are a bit overpriced. Both samples burned pretty well, provided an enjoyable medium-bodied smoke with some nice flavors. We’d both recommend you try this cigar, but we don’t think you’ll find this cigar to be overly impressive.
Since Macanudo cigars are commonly described as being mild and having little flavor, the 1968 is an interesting departure. We’d both like to hear your comments on this cigar, as we’ve both seen some mixed reviews on this stick.
