|The Cusano brandâ€™s initial mission was to start a value-driven business that could compete with other over-priced cigar brands. To say they succeeded would be an understatement. In the growth and development process Cusanoâ€™s Celebrity series sprung up â€“ and from it the M1. The famed line is rolled at the renowned Tabadom Factory in the Dominican Republic and strives to compete with such giants as Macanudo and Partagas. In fact the Cusano M1 is blended to model Macanudoâ€™s famous quality and taste; a seamless combination of Dominican fillers nestled inside a Connecticut wrapper leaf. Cusano went on the mild side with this one but as always they managed to offer a premium cigar at a very affordable price. Featuring mellow Dominican fillers and a Dominican binder the M1 is dressed in a blonde-hued Ecuadorian Connecticut-seed wrapper. For extra Cuban-style gusto the Cusano M1 uses a double binder process that uniquely reinforces its overall construction. Altogether the mild M1 creates a creamy and smooth taste sure to satisfy any aficionadoâ€™s palette.
