Joya de Nicaragua Cinco de Cinco Corona Extra

Team Cigar Review: Joya de Nicaragua Cinco de Cinco Corona Extra

This Joya de Nicaragua Cinco de Cinco Corona Extra was a nice Mexican wrapper offering. I don't think it was needed by the company for the Maestros portfolio, but it was good. Lots of other Mexican releases have been busts recently. The Corona Extra was not my favorite size in the portfolio in terms of blend performance, but it is a great size and an enjoyable flavor profile that I will come back to this offering.

Team Cigar Review: Joya de Nicaragua Cinco de Cinco Robusto Gordo

I enjoyed the Joya de Nicaragua Cinco de Cinco Robusto Gordo, and have enjoyed all the releases in the Obras Maestras portfolio. I would not say this is my favorite, but it is definitely a nice Mexican release and solid medium-full maduro offering. One of the better Mexican releases of late as well. I do appreciate that Joya has kept things different with each of these releases. I look forward to 60 years.

Team Cigar Review: Joya de Nicaragua Dos Cientos

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!

Team Cigar Review: Joya de Nicaragua Número Uno L’Ambassadeur

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.

Team Cigar Review: Joya de Nicaragua Añtano CT Toro

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.

Team Cigar Review: Joya de Nicaragua Selección de Torcedor 2019

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.

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.
