Joya de Nicaragua Cuatro Cinco

COVID-19 Day 904:
 Cuatro Cinco, Joya De Nicaragua, Nicaragua, Nicaragua Jalapa
Today was my first time with this Joya de Nicaragua Cuatro Cinco. I figured since this has been hanging out in the TupperDor for at least a couple of years it might be time to spark this thing.

Once lit, earthy coffee, and cocoa come to me. The retrohale has a nice pepper blast with some fruity citrus notes to go along with it.

Overall, this was a very enjoyable cigar and beautifully constructed offering no burn issues the cigar coming apart… a common challenge these days in 2022 I’m guessing because of the labor shortages that seem to plague the whole world these days.

Anyway, this didn’t know my socks off, but if it were offered to me… you bet! I’d smoke it again.
