A new size to the Joya Red line is heading to the U.S. markets. Today Joya de Nicaragua announced that the 3 1/2 x 46 Joya Red Half Corona will now be available in the U.S. market. This was a line extension that was introduced by Joya de Nicaragua at the Inter-Tabac 2015 in Dortmund, Germany and had previously only been available in the European market.

The new Half Corona will be available in two packaging options – a five count “grab and go” box or a more traditional 20 count box.


Joya Red made its debut in 2014. Joya de Nicaragua had built a reputation for bolder and more powerful smokes. Joya Red maked a change by introducing a more dialed back offering into the Joya de Nicaragua portfolio.
