We might be eight years past Joya de Nicaragua’s 45th anniversary, but the Cuatro Cinco is getting a second act.
This summer, Joya de Nicaragua will be releasing the Cuatro Cinco Edición Americana TAA Exclusive, a 6 inch by 54 ring gauge belicoso made just for retail members of the Tobacconists’ Association of America.
The cigar is made with a Nicaraguan Criollo wrapper, Dominican binder and Nicaraguan filler. According to Joya, the cigars are aged for a minimum of one year in oak rum barrels.
Only 500 boxes of 10 will be released.
The bald eagle is displayed across the inner and outer lid of each limited-edition box as a nod to the U.S.
“We have selected the bald eagle because of what it represents to our American friends, an example of stamina, power, and freedom. In 2021, Joya de Nicaragua is celebrating Nicaragua’s independence bicentennial, and what better symbol to connect us both than the symbol of freedom,” said Daniel Barrios, global commercial manager for Joya de Nicaragua.
The Cuatro Cinco Edición Americana comes as a follow-up to last year’s Asian exclusive and is distributed by Drew Estate.
