Say hello to Antano’s new brother, Celebracion!
Joya de Nicaragua Celebracion is the latest premium from the makers of Joya de Nicaragua Antano 1970 – one of the hottest, strongest smokes on the market. Using the same Nicaraguan grown Habana-seed fillers and binders utilized by Antano, the Celebracion sports a super smooth, aged Habana-seed Criollo wrapper leaf. The end result is a complex, flavorful, medium to full-bodied cigar that’s easier on the palate than its older brother. A must try cigar, that's priced just right.
“awesome cigar (Joya de Nicaragua Celebracion), i look forward to trying it in the toro size. the consul size burns very evenly, producing a tight, white to light-grey ash, and lasts a good 45-minutes to the last third of the cigar. a pleasant, heady aroma is produced along with a medium to full flavor, but not hot or harsh. some leather, tobacco, and earthy flavors are evident with the usual perceived sweetness of a nicaraguan puro. this cigar is a nice preview to the full-bodied antano! not recommended for the mild, dominican smoker.”ks of Carlisle, PA
“I would compare this cigar(Joya de Nicaragua Celebracion) to Edge Corojo in terms of strength - but there are differences in other aspects. Most important, Celebracion stays pretty spicy all the way through while Edge keeps the strength but loses the spice. Also I think that Celebracion has a bit more complexity of flavor.”GM of Union City, NJ
“The Consul size of Joya de Nicaragua Celebracion was a potent little spark plug of a cigar. I'm a seasoned cigar smoker, and this brand delivered the goods in complexity of flavor and strength. Not too many cigars surprise me with their strength, but this one brought it! Thanks CI!”SC of Shreveport, LA
“This is the cigar(Joya de Nicaragua Celebracion) that the gods want me to smoke ! Strong, tasty,good to the last nub”JT of Eagleville, PA
“I like this stick (Joya de Nicaragua Celebracion), maybe not as much as the Antano, but I like it. It is toothy - just what I expect from Nicaraguan tobacco. However, infused with a delicate spice and a chompy, leathery finish. I think this is a gritty back 9 stick, sneak a snifter of Onoroco... you'll have a blast! My rate this stick: 88 ”CS of Southern, CA
“I have to disagree with the other gentlemen. To my palate, the JdN Celebracion torpedo is a very smooth, mild to medium smoke with a subtle, sweet wrapper that reminds me somewhat of a Felipe Gregorio Pelo de Oro (but I have been known to exagerate from time to time). The last third can burn a little hot, but the burn stays even and true. I've never had the smaller sizes, but if you like the small ones, then you should definitely try the larger ring. It's good!”MG of Malibu, CA
“Spectacular cigar(Joya de Nicaragua Celebracion). IMO much more flavorful than the Antano. Defintely worth keeping some in the humidor.”BM of San Lorenzo, CA
“Just plain delicious!Hey C.I., see if Dr.Cuenca would make this also in a Gran Consul size 4.7x60-would be awesome!Thanks C.I.”RK of College Park, MD
“Antano lovers will find the Celebration blend quite familiar. Celebration shares a common filler & binder, but utilizes a different wrapper that makes it slightly less full bodied. A nice way to enjoy JdN's distinct flavor, without the sensory overload of some of their other blends. Highly recommended & available in the popular Consul size (4.5 X 52).”BB of LOVELAND, OH
“this is a good cigar. strong, but flavorful and balanced, not just sheer power imo. for me, some of jdn's smokes, flavors get lost in their attempt to make things strong. this was a nice cigar. i've smoked a small robusto, and what seemed to be a gordo, the bigger ring gauge was a step up and allowed nice flavors to develop.”CE of Milford, PA
“Antano's little brother is Celebration. Created with the same filler & binder tobaccos as it's muscular sibling, Celebration utilizes a spicy Criollo wrapper to distinguish itself. This pale brown leaf draped flawlessly over Consul's frame, is somewhat less powerful than the natural wrapper used with Antano. It still delivers a med/full bodied, full flavored array of delicious tastes. Leather, toast, lots of spice & the unmistakable Nicaraguan profile JDN started with the 1st true Nicaraguan puro. Celebration is not quite as complex as Antano. Yet it is far from boring or one note. On the contrary, this 4.5" X 52rg vitola is loaded with surprises. The ash is firm, the burn true & the draw easy, with just the slightest amount of resistance. Celebration earns a well deserved 92/100. Among my favorite blends, the recent freebie deal induced me to purchase a box. Bringing the per stick cost down to under 2 bones makes this a great deal & a wonderful way to try several different blends from the folks at JDN & Drew Estate.”BB of LOVELAND, OH
“The deal was just too good to pass up, so I ordered a box of the coronas. A 5.5" X 42 slim panetela like frame is covered by a brown criollo wrapper. Construction is good, not too soft & the burn is straight. This smallish corona lacks the power I have found in the larger ring gauge vitolas in the Celebration line. Taste is pretty much the same, but for some reason, the corona falls a bit short in complexity & strength. It is medium bodied & flavorful, but I have to drop the rating a bit, in comparison to the Consul robusto. 89/100 The deal is 15 JdN & Drew Estate sticks for free. Making the normal 4 bone pricetag on the coronas a mere $2.85. I have purchased the Consul in a 10 pack sampler with Antano for $4.00 before, too.”BB of LOVELAND, OH
“A great mild smoke!”MM of San Antonio, TX
“Favorite cigar to date. Smooth draw, spicy lingering taste. Amazing relaxing cigar that, at the same time, makes you wanna get up and dance! 9/10 Rating. Closest to perfect cigar ever.”MK of Farmington, IL
