The Joya de Nicaragua Antaño 1970 is a rich dark earthy leathery classic smoke through a perfect draw with pepper spice on the retrohale to let me know who’s the boss.
Strong, bold and rich earthy tobacco flavors as pepper continue to coat my tongue. This is another example of good value and an affordable cigar.
I have several of these classics in my TupperDor. I should pull these out more often.
The more I learn about the Antano 1970 Consul by Joya de Nicaragua, the more I’m Impressed. You’d be surprised to learn what you don’t know… this will be our secret.
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.
