The stronger side of Connecticut.
For decades, Joya de Nicaragua has enjoyed a reputation as a serious connoisseurs stick. Bold, full-bodied flavors are the hallmark of this classic brand, and many a new puffer has been taken off guard by the strength and remember the JdN Antano as the first cigar to turn them green. Despite this, they remain highly sought after decades after their release.
The newest member of the Joyo de Nicaragua portfolio wears a silky smooth Ecuador Connecticut wrapper, but don’t let the light color fool you - this cigar is all Joyo. The Nicaraguan filler & binder work with the wrapper to create a medium-full bodied powerhouse of a profile. It’s rare to see a Connecticut shade wrapper exhibit this much body & flavor, but the minds at JdN refused to compromise until they got the blend exactly how they wanted it. Lighting up, you’ll be greeted to an intensely peppery, rich profile with notes of toast, cedar, and leather, and you’ll be hooked before you even make it halfway. It’s not long before this release is showered with accolades and becomes a bit scarce, so don’t hesitate to try this game-changing Connecticut.
Good news! Joya de Nicaragua Antano Connecticut has received an impressive 93-point rating, noting: “Rolled in a clean wrapper with an oily gleam, this robusto shows a lively, sweet-and-spicy interplay of graham cracker, red and black pepper and some boozy, rum barrel notes. A touch of dark chocolate appears on the palate as well. The draw and burn remain even.”
