Reinventing and reinvigorating the famous Antano cigar recipe, the Joya de Nicaragua Antano Dark Corojo uses a potent corojo wrapper leaf to create its powerful dark charms. Unmistakably full in body, the Dark Corojo is teeming with heavy notes of spice, cacao, leathery molasses, and more for those who seek the boldest of vibrations.

Joya de Nicaragua Antano Gran Reserva

W – Nicaragua

B – Nicaragua

F – Nicaragua

Strength: Medium-full

Origin: Nicaragua

Putting a vintage twist on the best-selling Antano 1970 blend, the Joya de Nicaragua Antano Gran Reserva uses 5-year-aged Nicaraguan filler leaves under an oily Corojo wrapper to provide a peppery-sweet companion to its full-bodied successor. Although it still carries the hallmark Nicaraguan tasting tones of nuts, cocoa, and woodiness, this elevation of the almighty Antano adds a few extra degrees of smoothness to its toasty flavor profile.

Joya Black

W – Mexico

B – Nicaragua

F – Nicaragua

Strength: Medium

Origin: Nicaragua

Employing a majestic Mexican San Andres wrapper leaf over a balanced grouping of fine Nicaraguan leaves, the medium-bodied Joya Black greets the palate with opulant flavors of dark chocolate, dried fruit, espresso, woody sweetness, and more. Rated 93 by Cigar Aficionado for its engaging complexity and effortless burn performance, the Joya Black cigar stands among the finest to ever emerge from the oldest factory in Nicaragua.

Joya Cabinetta

W – Ecuador/Nicaragua

B – Nicaragua

F – Nicaragua

Strength: Mellow-medium

Origin: Nicaragua

Mellow to medium in strength, the Joya Cabinetta uses a unique combination of two different wrapper leaves to cover its rounded mix of Nicaraguan binder and filler tobaccos. With an Ecuadorian shade wrapper on the body and a Nicaraguan Criollo wrapper at the head, the Cabinetta ignites to reveal smooth tomes of leather, creamy hazelnut, almond, and oak while its two-tone appearance turns heads and piques the interest of those nearby.

Joya Red

W – Nicaragua

B – Nicaragua

F – Nicaragua

Strength: Medium

Origin: Nicaragua

A delicious change of pace from Joya’s signature ligero-heavy blends, the refreshing Joya Red uses visos and lower priming Habano wrapper leaves for a bit more subtlety to accompany its lush, medium-bodied flavor. With its rich and beautifully balanced interior blend of tobaccos spanning the famously fertile soils of Nicaragua’s Estelí, Jalapa and Condega growing regions, the Joya Red is a vibrant smoke full of creamy, earthy, and spicy character.
