IPCPR 2018: Joya de Nicaragua

Null

As has been the case the past few years, Joya de Nicaragua was located in the Drew Estate booth.

This year, the company is celebrating its 50th anniversary and has not only a new cigar to celebrate that occasion, but also a new blend named after another color.

Joya de Nicaragua Cinco Décadas

Yes, the Nicaraguan cigar company is actually 50 years old. On paper, the Cinco Décadas—Spanish for five decades—seems to be a fitting tribute, especially considering it is being released in the same vitolas that were first rolled at the factory when it opened in 1968.

  • Joya de Nicaragua Cinco Décadas Diadema (6 x 54) — $19.99 (Boxes of 10, $190.90)

Joya Silver

First came Joya Black, followed by Joya Red. While the color silver might invoke thoughts of a milder blend—especailly considering the colors that came before it—the company describes the Silver blend as “medium-full.”

Joya de Nicaragua Tins

Yes, there are some new tins to go along with the more than 10 that were released last year. I asked why there were no tins for the new Joya Silver and was told it was under consideration.

  • JOYA Black Tin (4 x 32) —$1.30 (Tin of 10, $13; Sleeve of 50, $65
  • JOYA Red Tin (4 x 32) — $1.30 (Tin of 10, $13; Sleeve of 50, $65)

Update (July 19, 2018) — The original version of this post stated an incorrect blend of the Cinco Décadas.

I have been smoking cigars for over eight years. A documentary wedding photographer by trade, I spent seven years as a photojournalist for the Dallas Morning News and the Fort Worth Star Telegram. I started the cigar blog SmokingStogie in 2008 after realizing that there was a need for a cigar blog with better photographs and more in-depth information about each release. SmokingStogie quickly became one of the more influential cigar blogs on the internet, known for reviewing preproduction, prerelease, rare, extremely hard-to-find and expensive cigars. I am a co-founder of halfwheel and now serve as an editor for halfwheel.
