Joya de Nicaragua: Antaño CT – A Cigar for Defiant Souls
The first blend of the Antaño family was released almost 20 years ago as a tribute to the power and the essence of “The True Nicaraguan Puro”. As a matter of fact, this characteristic power and essence made Joya de Nicaragua the most sought-after cigar in the US. This happened in the 1970s during the post-Cuban embargo.
This year, we are introducing a new member of the Antaño family: Antaño CT. We’ve been keeping this secret to ourselves, but now, we’re ready to share it. Read the full blog to find out more about this brand new daring cigar.
Antaño CT: A Cigar for Defiant Souls
With its silky-smooth Connecticut shade wrapper, it may seem tamer than its bolder Antaño brethren. But don’t let it fool you. Antaño CT is a masterful and paradoxical blend of what a cigar with attitude can be. Unquestionably, a cigar that defies expectations; a smoke for those with defying souls.
“Today, Antaño is not just one cigar blend, it is a family of products that invite smokers to #KeepDaring, to try powerful and intense blends with distinctive Nicaraguan character.” – Juan Ignacio Martínez, Executive President at Joya de Nicaragua.
Keep Daring and Experience an Intense CT Smoke
Antaño CT, with its Ecuadorian Connecticut Shade wrapper, and Nicaraguan fillers and binder, delivers a medium to full body and strength, with dynamic creaminess and intense spicy notes. Intentionally pungent to showcase the contrasts between the expected subtleties of the CT shade, and the rich and potent flavors of Nicaraguan tobacco.
“This smoke is definitely an intense experience. The intriguing result of master blenders on a paradoxical quest: the creation of a flavor bomb like the rest of the Antaños but with this wrapper.” Expressed Mario Pérez, Joya de Nicaragua’s Factory Manager. “It became a real challenge for us at the factory. Torcedores and blenders, we all wanted to defy an industry mantra, we knew we could make a truly interesting CT cigar”
The Antaño CT line will come in 20 count boxes, in 4 different sizes:
- 6×54 Belicoso (MSRP $ 9.90)
- 6×50 Toro (MSRP $9.70)
- 5×52 Robusto (MSRP $8.45)
