With new brands and new blends coming to market each year, it’s easy to forget the classics. The Joya de Nicaragua Antaño 1970 Churchill is one such example, and the cigar is classic in every sense: It comes from the oldest producer of handmade cigars in Nicaragua. It’s made in a traditional size. And the blend is what brand owner Alejandro Martínez-Cuenca regards as a quintessential Nicaraguan cigar. By quintessential, he means that the tobacco represents the country’s most important growing regions in a cohesive way, giving us a sense of place and origin. The cigar’s steady balance of earth, sweetness and power also remind us of why the house of Joya de Nicaragua has been standing for so long.
