Joya de Nicaragua has announced a couple of line extensions for their Antaño CT and Número Uno lines. The Antaño CT will get a Lonsdale size 44 x 168mm (6 5/8″) and the Número Uno’s new vitola is called L’Attaché, a 42 x 140mm (5 1/2″) Corona.
Initially released in 2019, Antaño CT is made up of a silky-smooth Ecuadorian Connecticut Shade wrapper with classic Antaño Nicaraguan binder and filler tobaccos. “When we launched Antaño CT, the reaction from cigar aficionados was amazing,” says Daniel Barrios, Joya de Nicaragua’s Global Commercial Manager. “The blend was well-received, just as we expected. Initially, we launched four vitolas, but we knew that it wasn’t going to stop there. That is why we have the pleasure to announce Antaño CT Lonsdale.” The new size is packaged in 20-count boxes, like the rest of the line.
The Número Uno L’Attaché was exclusively made for an event at Chicago’s Up Down Cigar store. “The last three years have been an amazing journey for Número Uno. When we were thinking what was next for this cigar, we remembered the beautiful smoke experience that this vitola provided and the decision to relaunch it was made,” says Daniel Barrios. The blend features an Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper and Nicaraguan binder and filler tobaccos. The Número Uno L’Attaché is sold in 25-count boxes.
“We have no words to describe the pride that Número Uno has given to Joya de Nicaragua. It feels like this cigar marked a new chapter in our history. Número Uno L’Attaché is the vitola that every cigar aficionado should be smoking this year.” adds Juan Ignacio Martinez, Executive President of Joya de Nicaragua.
Both new sizes are reserved for members of Club de Amigos of JDN, an exclusive community created for Joya de Nicaragua’s top retailers, to increase their knowledge about Joya de Nicaragua and its cigars and to reward their loyalty with unique benefits.
