Joya de Nicaragua’s strongest line, the Antaño, gets a new Connecticut Shade wrapped variation called Joya de Nicaragua Antaño CT.
As mentioned in a Press Release from Joya de Nicaragua, this is not your classic, mild Connecticut Shade wrapped cigar. Instead the Antaño CT is supposted to pack a punch, not as strong as the regular Antaño, but the cigar is billed as medium to full bodied in strength. In detail the blend is obviously made up of a Connecticut Shade wrapper, from Ecuador, over Nicaraguan binder and filler.
This new line comes in 4 different sizes:
- Joya de Nicaragua Antaño CT Belicoso, 54 x 152 mm
- Joya de Nicaragua Antaño CT Corona Gorda, 46 x 133 mm
- Joya de Nicaragua Antaño CT Robusto, 52 x 127 mm
- Joya de Nicaragua Antaño CT Toro, 50 x 152 mm
All the sizes come in 20 count boxes, with the retail price ranging, from $160 – $198 per box, depending on the size. The cigars are produced at Joya de Nicaragua’s own factory in Esteli, Nicaragua.
The cigars will be presented at the upcoming IPCPR trade show, in Las Vegas, and are supposed to ship in July.
