Tasting Note

The oldest cigar factory in Nicaragua decided to take a step away from its traditional flavor profile and packaging and move towards what it believes is more modern blending and presentation. With its glittering silver trim and quilted mesh pattern, the band will certainly get your attention, but what intrigued us most was how the Joya Silver Corona performed. It starts with an earthy core that takes on layers of dried fruit, roasted nuts and coffee bean. Overall, the cigar is medium-to-full bodied without ever losing its sense of balance or harmony and is a pleasure to smoke from first puff to last. Fans of coronas will appreciate how so much flavor can come from such a diminutive size.
