Scandinavian Tobacco Group in January will release the Macanudo Inspirado Year of the Rabbit to commemorate the Chinese New Year, which begins on January 22. The limited-edition release will be sold exclusively in select markets in Europe and Asia, including France, Spain, the United Arab Emirates and Macau, China.
The Year of the Rabbit features a Connecticut Shade wrapper with Mexican binder and filler from the Dominican Republic and Mexico. The 6 x 50 toro comes in 10-count boxes and carries an expected retail price of 18-20 Euros, or around $20.
The cigars are produced at General Cigar Dominicana in Santiago, Dominican Republic.
“While Lunar New Year celebrations are gaining in popularity, the demand for Macanudo Inspirado continues to grow globally as the blends are particularly appealing to a range of palates,” Mark Renard, international marketing manager for STG, said in a press release.
