Antaño is a real piece of cigar history.
As the first brand ever made in Nicaragua, Joya de Nicaragua is a favorite among aficionados who prefer cigars from this region.
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. With political corruption and communism plaguing Nicaragua, production of the Joya de Nicaragua brand ground to a halt.
Joya de Nicaragua's Antaño 1970 is the quintessential Nicaraguan cigar. This Nicaraguan puro was the first Nicaraguan blend ever made and remains the benchmark that all other cigars strive for. Encased inside a dark, oily Habano wrapper, Antaño 1970 packs a wallop. Notes of cedar, earth, and a healthy dose of spice make this the perfect end-of-day cigar, and one that'll keep you coming back for more.
Wow! This cigar is heavenly. I have smoked Arturo Fuentes with Connecticut wrappers for a long time. Way back in the late 70s, I smoked a few Joya de Nicarague cigars and loved them, but they disappeared not long after. I decided to get a few Antanos and Celebracions to see what they are like now. I was afraid this cigar would be more than I could handle, but in many ways it is less "strong" than some so-called light or medium cigars I have smoked. The flavors and aromas are earthy and complex but gentle on the palate. I could get used to this cigar in a hurry.
