Joya de Nicaragua Releases Strong and Mild Brands
Posted: March 2, 2010
Joya de Nicaragua has released two brands to the market, one very mild, and the other excessively strong. The Joya de Nicaragua Cabinetta Serie (right) was blended with mild tobaccos for easy accessibility, while the Joya de Nicaragua Antaño Dark Corojo uses highoctane ligero for power.
The Antaño Dark Corojo was introduced at the 2009 International Premium Cigar & Pipe Retailers trade show and is starting to hit store shelves now, packed in boxes of 20 cigars.
"The filler of this cigar consists basically of more than two-thirds ligero leaves," explained brand owner Alejandro Martinez-Cuenca.
The cigar comes in five ominously named sizes, each created to "prepare the smoker for the full-bodied experience," said Martinez-Cuenca.
If the names of the Antaño Dark Corojo scare you off, you can defer to the Joya de Nicaragua Cabinetta Serie, a more novice-friendly cigar that is made with two wrappers—a dark Nicaraguan Habano seed around the top quarter of the cigar and a light Ecuadoran Connecticut seed wrapper covering the bottom three-quarters, giving the appearance of being cedar wrapped.
