The Joya de Nicaragua Dos Cientos is a balanced cigar that is complex from beginning to end. Nice bit of depth with wonderful flavors. A fantastic multi-nation blend that one may not think Joya would or could create. They continue to produce fantastic new blends when released, great vitola expansions, and keep the quality up on their existing brands. Job well done!
The Joya de Nicaragua Número Uno L'Ambassadeur is simply fantastic. It is a tremendous Connecticut release and is complex from beginning to end. There is great transitioning taking place and it is always balanced. Releasing this cigar for the general cigar smoking world was a brilliant move by the company and I know I will turn to it quite frequently as my cigar of choice.
I was impressed with the Joya de Nicaragua Añtano CT Toro for the entire smoking experience. The blend managed to stay in the confines of a traditional Connecticut profile, while bringing some barbecue and bready notes which are components you wouldn't typically expect. Balanced from start to finish, I think Joya de Nicaragua is going to have a solid performance with this release.
Overall, I liked the flavor profile (sans the last third) of the Joya de Nicaragua Selección de Torcedor 2019. There were more softer and smoother notes to the cigar (creamy bread, cherry soft candy with trailing baking spices). That, coupled with perfection in burn and draw performance, creates an experience worth visiting.
This blend comes in only one vitola, L’Ambassadeur, a parejo 6 5/8 x 44 tailed lonsdale. In the United States, it will be available only at DDRP brick and mortar stores, in 25 count boxes, with an MSRP of $15.00 per stick. Número Uno uses a silky and delicate Ecuadorian Connecticut shade wrapper over a Nicaraguan binder and Nicaraguan fillers.
Antaño CT, with its Ecuadorian Connecticut Shade wrapper, and Nicaraguan fillers and binder, delivers a medium to full body and strength, with dynamic creaminess and intense spicy notes. Intentionally pungent to showcase the contrasts between the expected subtleties of the CT shade, and the rich and potent flavors of Nicaraguan tobacco.
The Joya de Nicaragua JOYA Silver Toro rounds out the portfolio neatly between the Red and Black. It delivers medium-full flavors while keeping the strength level locked at a maximum of medium. The Joya Silver is going to have broad market appeal.
