In commemoration of one of the first blends of the Joya de Nicaragua Factory and the fidelity of the Spanish market towards the Rosalones brand in the last 11 years, they present Rosalones Selección Bodegas, a platform through which the Rosalones brand will bring to the market exclusive blends to pair with wines from the Iberian region. With annual limited editions, the brand aims to accompany Spanish smokers in one of their favorite rituals, combining a cigar with a good wine and creating a unique sensory experience.
Every year Rosalones Selección Bodegas will present to the market a blend that makes a perfect pairing with one of the many denominations of origin of the peninsula, in collaboration with the Wine and Cigar Sommelier Agustín López, who has been in charge of identifying these harmonious unions. This edition is suggested to be smoked with red wines with Qualified Denomination of Origin Rioja.
Rosalones Selección Bodegas “Edicion 2022″ preserves in its composition the exact character of the original Rosalones blend from the 60s, made with aged tobacco leaves of the highest quality. Edicion 2022 comes in 20-ct boxes and in a 50 x 152mm (6”) Toro format. Only 250 boxes will be produced from this limited edition and will be available for sale in the cigar shops of Spain in the middle of December 2022.
“Spain was instrumental in developing the tobacco industry as we know it today. Hence the importance it has had over the years. And for us, it has been the same. Spain is very important, we have been in this market for many years, and many smokers have supported our brands. Rosalones Selección Bodegas is a tribute to our friends, Albert and Ernest, our local team, the tobacconists, and the fans in general,” said Juan Ignacio Martínez, Executive President of Joya de Nicaragua.
“I feel very proud, and it has been a privilege for me to be able to collaborate in this great pairing with Joya de Nicaragua, a company with more than 50 years of existence and a world leader in the art of tobacco. I have contributed my grain of sand to this project, where we have worked side by side, contributing ideas to continue innovating and creating Rosalones Selección Bodegas, where the tradition and history of Nicaraguan tobacco and wines from La Rioja come together”, said wine and cigar sommelier Agustín López.
