Joya de Nicaragua is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year and it’s doing so with a variety of special cigars.

One of them is the Joya de Nicaragua No.1., a 6 5/8 x 44 parejo that uses an Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper over a Nicaraguan binder and Nicaraguan fillers. Of note, the cigars aren’t for sale, as they are made for Nicaraguan ambassadors around the world, where the cigar’s band uses the coat of arms of Nicaragua.

The cigars will be available in the U.S. at Drew Diplomat events between now and the end of July.
