I’ve had these Joya de Nicaragua, Antano 1970 since last May, so they’ve been resting for five months.
Strong, Bold and Spicy with a Perfect Draw and I’m happy.
I did some research: from Cigar Aficionado
“Joya de Nicaragua, known as Nicaragua’s oldest premium cigar brand, was first established in 1968.”
I’m a half-inch into this Joya De Nicaragua Antano 1970 and my tongue has a hole burned in it from the spiciness; rich and full of flavor and spice with a long lasting finish.
At the last third, I think I taste something sweet… figs or sweet raisins?
Anyway, I’m digging this very affordable cigar. It is firm to the touch and I would almost venture to say that it reminds me of one of my expensive Drew Estate Liga blends with a little more spicy kick. That’s all I will say today.
This was the first time with this. I smoked it in the car; probably not the best way to discover anything meaningful, but I did get the tremendous amount of pepper spice.
This cigar is full of flavor, but my eyes were almost watering and I think I it had burned a hole in my tongue. I need to have another one of these when I can concentrate better.
I’m the meantime, I’m enjoying my ride.
