Macanudo and Flint Knoll, a Napa Valley-based, boutique winery, have collaborated to create Macanudo Estate Reserve Flint Knoll, a limited-edition expression, which is being shipped now.
Produced at General Cigar Dominicana, the blend is made with a selection of six tobaccos that span five countries. The Macanudo Estate Reserve Flint Knoll features an Ecuadorian-grown Connecticut Shade wrapper over Connecticut Broadleaf binder with a filler blend of Brazilian Mata Fina, Dominican Olor, Nicaraguan Jalapa and Dominican Piloto Cubano.
Macanudo Estate Reserve Flint Knoll will be released in a 6 x 54 Toro ($19.99) and a 7 x 52 Churchill ($21.99). The cigars have white bands with deep embossing, accented in copper filigree and are packaged in handmade wooden boxes containing ten cigars each.
“The collaboration with Flint Knoll is the first of its kind for Macanudo and gives us the opportunity to explore the synergies between cigar and winemaking,” Steve Abbot, director of marketing for Macanudo said in a press release.
