Joya de Nicaragua Clasico

At the 2023 Premium Cigar Association (PCA) Trade Show, Joya de Nicaragua will relaunch one of its oldest cigars, the Joya de Nicaragua Clásico Original. The relaunch is part of the 55th-anniversary celebration of Joya de Nicaragua.

The Joya de Nicaragua Clásico Original was the first premium cigar to be exported from Nicaragua. It was chosen to be the official cigar of the White House by President Richard Nixon. In 2018, the Joya de Nicaragua Clásico became an exclusive to Casa de Montecristo and JR Cigars. Now it is back being distributed by Joya de Nicaragua via Drew Estate. It will be available through Club de Amigos, Joya de Nicaragua’s preferred retail partner channel.

“If a new smoker asks me ‘What cigar should I start with?’ I always suggest the Clásico,” says Juan Martinez, Executive President of Joya de Nicaragua in a press release. “It’s a cigar that welcomes you to this incredible world in the most delicate way. In fact, this was the first cigar I ever tried. In that vein, this is a gift to America’s new generation of cigar smokers, so they can begin to understand the legacy that this very special Nicaraguan cigar carries with it.”

In 2021, the Joya de Nicaragua Clásico was rebranded as the Joya de Nicaragua Clásico Original. The blend remains the same as it features an Ecuadorian Connecticut Shade wrapper over Nicaraguan binder and fillers. It will be relaunched in four sizes – each in 25-count boxes: Robusto (5 x 50, SRP $8.00/cigar), Toro (6 x 50, SRP $9.00/cigar), Churchill (6 7/8 x 48, SRP $9.00), and Torpedo (6 x 52, SRP $9.00/cigar)

The 2023 PCA Trade Show opens July 7, 2023, in Las Vegas, Nevada. While Drew Estate will not be exhibiting at the 2023 PCA Trade Show, Joya de Nicaragua will be there and taking orders. The Clásico Original will also be presented at Intertabac 2023 in Dortmund, Germany in September.
