Joya de Nicaragua and Drew Estate presented the Cuatro Cinco Edición Americana TAA Exclusive, the third TAA exclusive product, as a token of appreciation to some of the most exclusive retailers in the country.
The Cuatro Cinco Edición Americana was selected to be JDN’s newest TAA exclusive because of its performance and the resemblance to the original Cuatro Cinco limited edition. “When we were deciding what the next TAA product should be, we knew it had to be special. And when the team proposed the Belicoso, the decision was made, there’s no other vitola in the Cuatro Cinco family that smokes closer to the original limited edition than this one,” said Juan Ignacio Martinez, Executive President.
Cuatro Cinco Edicion Americana TAA Exclusive is a limited batch of five hundred, 10ct boxes in a Belicoso vitola (6 x 54). The blend features a Nicaraguan Criollo wrapper and select Grade A fillers. The cigars are aged for a minimum of one year within vintage white oak barrels, used in a world-renowned rum distillery.
Cuatro Cinco – Edicion Americana TAA Exclusive is the second regional edition of one of JDN’s highest rated blends. “These are some of the best cigars that come out of our factory. The stories we tell with them need to be special. We have selected the Bald Eagle because of what it represents to our American friends, an example of stamina, power, and freedom. In 2021, JDN is celebrating Nicaragua’s independence bicentennial, and what a better symbol to connect us both than the symbol of freedom, ” said Daniel Barrios, Global Commercial Manager.
The Cuatro Cinco Edicion Americana TAA Exclusive will be formally presented to the trade during the TAA Virtual Conference on March 23rd and will be shipped out to stores over the summer. “It has been an exciting experience being on this side of the industry. Talking to friends and customers to evaluate this project has been a great experience. I’m excited to see how this continues to foster the partnership between TAA and Joya de Nicaragua,” said Sarah Hearton, recently appointed as US Field Market Manager at Drew Estate.
