Nicaragua is the fastest growing cigar manufacturing country in the world, but that hasn't always been the case. In 1964, the very first cigar factory opened in Nicaragua, which relative to other cigar producing nations is a late start. Joya de Nicaragua was the first real brand made in the factory and in 1970 it was the cigar of choice in the United States, enjoyed by the elite of society and politicians of the day. Today, the brand is still hailed as one of the best-tasting full-bodied premium cigars available.
What separates Fuerte from the rest of the Joya de Nicaragua blends is its super-smooth finish. Even though this blend is still incredibly potent, robust, and full-bodied, the well-aged Nicaraguan tobaccos mellow perfectly to create an enjoyably smooth character that never becomes overwhelming. The smoke is thick and creamy, while the aroma is simply excellent. Expect spice and pepper to intermingle from head to foot while a note of leather remains on your palate for a long, enticing finish.
