Joya is back in black, baby!
An amped up follow-up to their incredibly Joya Red blend, Joya de Nicaraguan Black is a medium to full-bodied blend with tons of rich, Nicaraguan flavor. A balanced and complex experience, Black easily lives up to the Joya de Nicaragua name and tradition, and offers a great addition to the profile of the oldest Nicaraguan cigar factory.
This ain’t just a flashy name either, fellas. Each scrumptious Joya Black features a dark, perfectly crafted Mexican San Andres Negro wrapper — the first Joya blend to do so. Thick and oily, this wrapper burns slowly to bring you dark chocolate, dried fruit, and hints of cedar and coffee. Joya Black is the second release in the “modern face” of Joya, and for my money, Joya’s going to have quite the bright future.
Good news, Joya de Nicaragua Black has received an impressive 93-point rating, noting: "This corona gorda leaves precise impressions of black cherry and cocoa nibs on the palate, which are elevated by notes of leather, nougat and a hint of peppermint."
