Joya de Nicaragua Antaño CT Robusto
SIZE: 52 x 127 mm (5″)
PRICE: $ 8.5 | € 7.5
TIME: 55 min
WRAPPER: Ecuador (Connect.)
The CT line was introduced earlier this year and combines the body of the Antaño line, which is the strongest in Joya de Nicaragua’s portfolio, together with the sweetness of the Connecticut Shade wrapper. Intense and masterfully balanced cigar. The characteristics of the Connecticut wrapper are supported by a blend that is nothing short of explosive.
It releases white pepper, vegetal notes and floral hints. Then earth and leather, enriched by mineral nuances and intense aromas of pan brioches. The finish is a spice bomb, that closes the smoke in a satisfying way.
HOW ARE THE AWARDS MADE?
Among the cigars tested during the year in blind tastings and reviews, those that scored the best score get re-selected. These products were then tested once again in a new blind tasting, which means not knowing what they are during the tasting. The test results are then compared and the TOP 5 are made.
Since 2015, CigarsLover Magazine has focused on terroirs, in order to give the right space to all the producing countries.
From 2018, the TOP 5 were paired with the TOP 50, which lists the 50 best cigars without distinction of origin. This list, together with the Best Brands, the Best Buy and the Best Boutique Brands, will be published in Winter 2019 issue of CigarsLover Magazine.
