Spotlight Brand: Joya de Nicaragua Antaño Dark Corojo Quickview Decadent & Delicious.As the first brand ever produced in Nicaragua, the Antaño line is a true piece of cigar history. Ten years after its initial release, the makers of Joya de Nicaragua produced Dark Corojo, 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—smoked by the elites of society and politicians of the day.Antaño Dark Corojo sports a fully-fermented Corojo wrapper that gives it an incredibly dark appearance. Inside you'll find a blend of premium Nicaraguan long leaf tobaccos, all aged at least three years to create a smooth, creamy balance. Due to the wrapper's extra-fermentation, this potent Joya offers a semi-sweet finish, which is a departure from the original Antaño blend. A fantastic after-dinner selection.
