Joya de Nicaragua has announced a new extension to its Cinco Décadas line known as El Embargo. The Joya de Nicaragua Cinco Décadas is the fifth size in the blend that was launched in 2018 to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the oldest cigar factory in Nicaragua.

The Cinco Décadas line pays homage to the people and events that have shaped Joya de Nicaragua throughout its history. In the case of El Embargo, it remembers the resiliency of Joya de Nicaragua thirty-five years ago when the U.S. Nicaraguan Embargo took place.

As for the cigar, it’s described as a limited edition 60 x 152mm (6 x 60) box-pressed Gigante. A total of 500 ten-count boxes are being released. After an initial release to Cigaragua in Amsterdam, they will be made available to select European markets. A small number of boxes have been allocated for Asia and Latin America Joya de Nicaragua has said.

“Cinco Décadas pays tribute to our milestones as a company; the events that have made and shaped who we are today. But not all of the occasions were positive, some of them were paramount challenges. The embargo was one of those hard situations we confronted, but one that in retrospect allowed Joya de Nicaragua to establish itself as a truly global brand. Another great example of how the tough moments in life can actually make us better and stronger. With El Embargo, we bring to our European friends a token of gratitude for opening their arms to us during those years,” said Dr. Alejandro Martínez Cuenca, Chairman of Joya de Nicaragua S.A., in a press release.
