What the Experts Are Saying: The Cuatro Cinco Reviews You Must Read
The Cuatro Cinco was created to commemorate Joya de Nicaragua’s 45th anniversary. But truth be told, it means much more than that to us. Joya de Nicaragua was the first factory in Nicaragua to manufacture cigars, before Joya, tobacco was only grown to export to other countries. In other words, the anniversary of Joya also marks the beginning of the premium cigar industry in Nicaragua.

Cuatro Cinco was launched as a Limited Edition of only 4,500 boxes. Inspired by the overwhelming success it received, we decided to launch a follow up version: Cuatro Cinco Reserva Especial.
This cigar consists of a carefully modified recipe that contains 100% Nicaraguan fillers and five year old ligeros aged inside oak barrels. The main modification of our new edition consists in a Dominican binder. Our intention is that you consider this cigar to commemorate the special moments in your life, your outstanding milestones. In other words, that you celebrate your superb milestones with ours.
Below are the ten Cuatro Cinco Reviews you must read:
1) Halfwheel Review
¨I was extremely impressed with the Cuatro Cinco Edición Limitada, and had high hopes for the newest incarnation of the line. Thankfully, my hopes were rewarded, for the most part. While I did not find the Reserva Especial quite as complex or as flavorful as the 2013 release, it is an extremely good blend in its own right, with a rich, dark cocoa as the main note in the profile interspersed with some wonderful marzipan sweetness that only gets stronger as the cigar burns down.¨

3) Cigar Aficionado Review
¨A softly pressed cigar with a good draw and burn. The sweet and savory notes of chocolate-covered orange pair well with the cigar’s dusty, mineral character.¨

4) Cigar Federation Review
¨The Joya de Nicaragua Cuatro Cinco Reserva Especial is a phenomenal follow up to the original release. I firmly believe this is the best cigar Joya de Nicaragua has ever produced. I’m very eager to try the Cuatro Cinco Reserva Especial in a Petit Corona. I hope that if they add on a future vitola to the line it’s a Corona Extra.¨

5) Stogie Guys Review
¨Kudos to Joya for releasing more than one Reserva Especial size; I particularly look forward to seeing how the Petit Corona stacks up. For now, the Toro should be on your watch list. It’s worthy of an admirable rating of four stogies out of five.¨

6) Cigar Obsession Review
¨On an interesting note I had to set it down for 10 minutes, came back to it and it required nothing, just kept smoking away! The 2nd third shifts slightly to an oily sweet vanilla and light earth, with most of the finish pepper disappearing. Construction is flawless. Ending at an hour where it got warm, the last third showed no further changes.¨

“A complex, diverse cigar with a broad aroma spectrum of leather to nut, wood, coffee … A discreet chocolate/caramel sweetness, a fine note of pepper, creamy in the smoke. Medium plus.”
