2023 brings Joya de Nicaragua’s 55th anniversary and to mark the occasion, Nicaragua’s first cigar factory launches Cinco de Cinco, the latest edition to the ultra-premium Obras Maestras line.
“This cigar was made with the people, by the people and for the people. Our past is all about tobacco. Our bright future is all about tobacco. We are here, stronger than ever thanks to our wonderful community of amigos.” – Juan Ignacio Martínez, Executive President of Joya de Nicaragua.
Joya de Nicaragua was one of the first to host private cigar blending sessions in its factory in Estelí, offering a fun and fascinating insight into blend creation. The JDN master blenders have since reviewed hundreds of blending records to build the perfect scoring recipe.
Cinco de Cinco is made from ultra-vintage tobaccos, including a Mexican San Andres wrapper and Nicaraguan fillers and binders in a soft-pressed format. It is a five out of five in profile and complexity; full bodied and medium strength, with deep, rich, earthy flavors, it offers hints of cocoa and dark chocolate. The cigar shines bright in emerald green. “An emerald symbolizes love, wisdom, growth and prosperity – values very much embodied in this blend,” says Martinez. “It is indeed a rare and mystical jewel.”
Cinco de Cinco will be unveiled this July at the PCA Convention and Trade Show in Las Vegas, catering to all retailers, and at InterTabac in Dortmund in September 2023. The handcrafted masterpiece will be on US shelves from September, followed by a global release in October.
Cinco de Cinco comes in 10-count boxes, with five distinct, semi-box pressed vitolas, three of which will be available in the USA and two exclusive for international markets.
