Created using tobacco derived from the same seed types used in original Macanudos from the 1960s, the Mao gives you a taste of the past. Using heirloom seeds over half a century old crossed with a new seed to resist disease, three acres were planted to provide just enough for this limited edition cigar. The Mao has a Connecticut Shade wrapper and Mexican binder with tobacco from Columbia and Nicaragua along with the exclusive Dominican tobacco that was nurtured in the fertile Mao region. The No. 10 is a sturdy Robusto that measures 5 inches by 50 rings and each one is individually coffined.
