Joya de Nicaragua has begun shipping a trio of new tins to retailers today, releasing the Joya de Nicaragua Antaño 1970, JOYA Black and JOYA Red. With their release, all 27 varieties of the Drew Estate 4×32 Tin Collection have been released, as Joya de Nicaragua is distributed by Drew Estate.
As the name would imply, each tin contains the specified blend in a 4 x 32 vitola, with each tin holding ten cigars.
The Joya de Nicaragua Antaño 1970 is one of the company’s most well-known blends, a Nicaraguan puro highlighted by a criollo wrapper that gives it spice, body and robustness. The JOYA Red is also a Nicaraguan puro, with a habano claro wrapper that mellows the blend and delivers a creamier flavor with touches of nuttiness and pepper. The JOYA Black keeps the Nicaraguan binder and filler, but wears a Mexican San Andrés wrapper to give it a fuller and more complex profile.
“Antaño has been the favorite JDN blend for Americans for over the last 15 years, and consumers will love being able to enjoy a quick smoke in this blend,” said Juan Martinez, president of Joya de Nicaragua, via a press release. “As we say at the factory, sometimes you’re so busy you don’t even have time even to smoke a machito, but there is always time for a mini Antaño.”
