Welcome cigar society, to another exciting review brought to you by a cigar I’ve been smoking for 2+ years now. Today, we’ delve into the world of’ll be looking at the Macanudo Cafe cigars, renowned for their impeccable quality, smoothness, and delightful flavor profile. With two years of cigar-smoking experience under my belt, I couldn’t be more thrilled to share my thoughts on this particular blend. Join me as we embark on a journey through the flavors of vanilla, café, and mild tobacco, all wrapped up in an extraordinary smoking experience.

Appearance and Construction


Macanudo Cafe cigars are visually captivating, boasting a pristine Connecticut shade wrapper that offers a light tan color and a smooth, oily texture. The cigar feels firm and well-constructed, indicating the attention to detail that went into its creation. The band, featuring the brand’s iconic crest, adds an elegant touch to the overall presentation. From the moment you hold a Macanudo Cafe cigar in your hand, you know you’re in for a refined smoking experience.

Pre-Light Experience


Before lighting up this beauty, I took a moment to savor the pre-light experience. The aroma was inviting, with subtle hints of vanilla and coffee teasing my senses. You can genuinely smell the coffee leaking out of the cigar even when you put it to your nose before lighting. Also, you can cut it any way you want, I don’t notice too much of a difference on this one (it’s going to be a smooth pull)

Flavor Profile


When you take the first puff you’ll get a mellow yet flavorful smoke. The initial draws unveil the gentlest of vanilla notes, which gracefully danced on my palate. The vanilla was never overpowering, but rather served as a delightful accent to the overall experience. As you keep smoking it, you’ll notice the café flavor emerge, offering a rich and aromatic profile that is reminiscent of freshly brewed coffee. The combination of vanilla and café flavors created a harmonious symphony of taste, elevating the smoking experience to new heights.

Smoothness and Mildness


One of the standout features of the Macanudo Cafe cigar is its extraordinary smoothness. It’s hard to compare this cigar to even other Macanudos cause the smoothness is one of the best I’ve experienced in a starter-cigar. The mild tobacco taste provides a solid foundation, ensuring a gentle smoking experience that is accessible to both seasoned aficionados and newcomers alike. The smoke is incredibly creamy, effortlessly gliding across the palate with each puff. Macanudo has masterfully crafted a blend that strikes a perfect balance between boldness and smoothness, resulting in a cigar that is both intriguing and approachable.

Burn and Draw

A cigar’s burn and draw can make or break the overall enjoyment, and Macanudo Cafe cigars deliver on both fronts. The burn line was razor-sharp, requiring minimal touch-ups throughout the smoke. The ash held firm, showcasing the cigar’s excellent construction. The draw, too, was effortless, allowing for ample smoke production without feeling too loose or too tight. The combination of a perfect burn and draw ensured a consistent and satisfying experience from start to finish.

In my opinion and experience, Macanudo Cafe is one of the best starters. This exceptional cigar delivers the simple flavors expertly, with vanilla and café leading the way, supported by a mild tobacco taste that adds depth to the overall profile. The Macanudo Cafe cigar is perfect for those seeking a refined and smooth smoking experience, whether it’s a casual afternoon or a celebratory occasion. Smoke them on the course or relaxing at home during the day.

Frequently Asked Questions About Macanudo Cafe Cigars

What does Macanudo Cafe cigar taste like?

Smooth and mild, with a solid base of vanilla, bread and sweet spice. A perfect morning or afternoon smoke and a perfect starter cigar. I like to smoke them late afternoon and many even smoke them on the (golf) course. You can find Macanudo cafes in almost any smoke shop or order them online.

What is the difference between Macanudo gold and cafe?

The difference between Macanudo Cafe and Macanudo Gold Label physically is the wrapper: both are mellow-smoking, low priming leaves, but the Gold Label’s shade wrapper is put on the cigar without any fermentation. Flavor wise they have a slightly different profile which will give a bit of a different expereince between the two.
