Joya de Nicaragua Clásico Original

Joya de Nicaragua has announced the Joya de Nicaragua Clásico Original will now be available to all U.S. retailers.

Originally called the Joya de Nicaragua Clásico, this is one of the oldest cigars in the Joya De Nicaragua portfolio. Clásico was the first premium cigar to be exported from Nicaragua. It was chosen as 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. It was rebranded Clásico Original in 2021, and last year, it moved back to national distribution through Club de Amigos, Joya de Nicaragua’s preferred retail partner channel. Now, it is available nationally to all retailers.

Clásico Original uses an Ecuadorian Connecticut Shade wrapper over Nicaraguan binder and fillers. It comes in four sizes – each in 25-count boxes: Robusto (5 x 50, SRP $8.75/cigar), Toro (6 x 50, SRP $9.25/cigar), Churchill (6 7/8 x 48, SRP $9.50), and Torpedo (6 x 52, SRP $9.75/cigar)

“Considering the legacy of the Clásico Original and its popularity in America since the 70s and 80s, we’ve decided to open up its sales to all US retailers,” says Juan Martinez, Executive President, in a press release. “This cigar has always belonged to the people. It’s no longer just about our history; it’s about the memories it has created for cigar lovers over the years.”
