This medium-bodied cigar is a bold and complex yet smooth cigar that was rated one of the Top 25 Cigars of the Year thanks to its delightful and rich flavors that are somewhat a departure from Macanudo's typical mild cigars.
Wrapped in a dark, oily Ecuadorian Habano leaf and filled with a beautifully complex bouquet of Nicaraguan, Dominican, and Brazilian long-fillers, you're sure to fall in love with this cigar from the first pull of its delicious smoke.
The Cru Royale Experience
You'll be sure to take note of the somewhat oily, deep brown wrapper. This Cru Royale cigar is nothing like the lighter-toned Cafe line-up by Macanudo. With near perfect construction, Macanudo's Cru Royale is an easy burn with sturdy ash and just the slightest hint of resistance in the draw. Once lit, you're likely to feel flavors of chocolate and cedar spice as well as some earthy flavors and possibly even espresso.
This cigar is a distinct member of the Macanudo line-up. It's not what you'd expect from the mostly mild-mannered product line-up and is definitely a reason for experience smokers who feel they've moved on to more complex flavors to come back to Macanudo and revisit a best selling brand that may have been the manufacturer of the cigars that got them into cigar smoking in the first place.
