Joya de Nicaragua Adding Antaño CT


Joya de Nicaragua’s Antaño brand will now be offered in Connecticut.

Antaño is known for its strength, something that is generally seen as the opposite of a lighter Connecticut shade-wrapped cigar, though Joya de Nicaragua describes this blend as medium-full. It uses an Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper over a Nicaraguan binder and Nicaraguan fillers.

  • Joya de Nicaragua Antaño CT Belicoso (6 x 54) — $9.90 (Box of 20, $198)
  • Joya de Nicaragua Antaño CT Toro (6 x 50) — $9.70 (Box of 20, $194)
  • Joya de Nicaragua Antaño CT Robusto (5 x 52) — $8.45 (Box of 20, $169)
  • Joya de Nicaragua Antaño CT Corona Gorda (5 1/4 x 46) — $8 (Box of 20, $160)

“This smoke is definitely an intense experience, the intriguing result of master blenders on a paradoxical quest: the creation of a flavor bomb like the rest of the Antaños but with this wrapper,” said Mario Pérez, Joya de Nicaragua’s factory manager, in a press release. “It became a real challenge for us at the factory, torcedores and blenders, we all wanted to defy an industry mantra, we knew we could make a truly interesting CT cigar.”

The Antaño CT will be shown off at the 2019 IPCPR Convention & Trade Show and ship to retailers in July.
