Top 25 of 2005 | Rank: 20

Tasting Note: The 2002 release of the Joya de Nicaragua Antaño line energized the slumbering Joya de Nicaragua brand. The success of that moderately priced cigar led its makers to set aside some of the component tobaccos for extra aging, resulting in this special release. The filler is aged for five years and the wrappers are the most select from the Nicaraguan criollo seed used to wrap the line. The 5 1/2 by 52 Robusto Grande is woody and earthy, with a long finish smacking of spice, leather and wood.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado, Apr 01, 2007
Score: 89
Dark and pressed, this cigar exudes a substantial chocolate aroma while it burns. Brawny pepper, cocoa and leather flavors mix well on the palate, as do some earthy licorice notes.

Issue: Cigar Insider, Oct 18, 2005
Score: 91
This slightly pressed cigar has an even draw and rich aroma. A nice range of woody and earthy notes leads to a long finish, complex with spice, leather and wood.
