Reap the benefits of Cuenca and Blanco cigars.
Cuenca y Blanco cigars hail from the legendary Joya de Nicaragua factory located in the Esteli-based JdN factory. These exquisite cigars are a labor of love, and a collaborative effort of two amazing minds: Joya de Nicaragua President Dr. Alejandro Martínez Cuenca and José Blanco, formerly of Aurora fame.
Each Cuenca y Blanco will have you at hello, thanks to its gorgeous Ecuador Habano wrapper primed with tooth and glistening with oils. Beneath the hood, a complex blend of Nicaraguan long-fillers from Ometepe and Esteli marry with Peruvian long-leaf tobaccos, inside a Piloto Cubano binder from the Dominican. Snip, light, and sit back to enjoy a supremely complex cigar with a strong focus on eventful flavors, rather than outright strength. Throughout the slow, cool burn, your taste buds are soothed by deep notes of oak, earth, and espresso bean. A touch of leather and dark cocoa enters the fray midway through, while each puff is complemented by a sweet, black pepper nuance that lingers long on the finish. Cuenca y Blanco, a uniquely complex cigar showcasing a wide range of satisfying flavors within a refreshing, medium-bodied profile. Something to be enjoyed early and often, and something to make some time for....and savor the blending talents of two top-notch minds in the industry.
Cuenca y Blanco received two 90-point ratings, one of which noted: "A dark and well-made corona, this full-bodied cigar delivers a chewy, toasty smoke that is sweet and nutty on each puff."
