At this year’s 2018 Tobacconist Association of America (TAA) Convention held at Casa de Campo in the Dominican Republic, Joya de Nicaragua introduced an exclusive 6 3/4 x 50 box-pressed Presidente size of its Antaño Gran Reserva line. That cigar is now en route to retailers.
The Joya de Nicaragua Antaño Gran Reserva Presidente is a 6 1/2 x 50 line extension to Joya de Nicaragua’s Joya de Nicaragua Antaño Gran Reserva line. Like the rest of the Joya de Nicaragua Antaño Gran Reserva, the cigar is 100% Nicaraguan puro. This line was originally released in 2005, but was brought back by Joya de Nicaragua in 2017. This is a line based on the Antaño 1970, but it uses fillers that have been aged up to an additional five years. The idea is it brings a more mature and refined profile to the Antaño 1970.
“I am very happy to hear that my favorite vitola, the one we shared with all our TAA friends at Casa de Campo last month, is finally available for smokers across the US”, said Dr. Alejandro Martinez Cuenca, JDN’s Chairman and CEO.
The Joya de Nicaragua Gran Reserva Presidente is part of the 2018 TAA Exclusive Series, which commemorates the 50th anniversary of Joya de Nicaragua.
It is also the eighth cigar of the 2018 TAA Exclusive Series to be released thus far, joining the CAO Estelí, EIROA 20 Years Diadema, Crowned Heads Angel’s Anvil 2018, Tatuaje TAA 50th, My Father Flor de Las Antillas Lancero, Gurkha Heritage Rosado, and the the Montecristo Artisan Series Batch 1 .
