Macanudo Inspirado Tercio Aged, a two-size line centered around Dominican piloto fillers that were aged in tercios for six months.
Tercios are a way of wrapping raw tobacco leaves inside of royal palm leaves as a method of aging the tobacco. The end result looks like a crudely wrapped present with the plan leaves tightly bound against the tobacco leaves. General Cigar Co. and E.P. Carrillo are the only two companies that consistently talk about using tercios, so it’s unclear how prevalent their usage is. Ernesto Perez-Carrillo Jr. worked for General for a decade before launching E.P. Carrillo.
In addition to the piloto cubano, the filler blend uses tobaccos from Colombia and the Dominican Republic. It’s wrapped in a Mexican San Andrés wrapper over an Indonesian binder. Like most Macanudos, it is made at General Cigar Dominicana
