Dear amigos, in 2001, we introduced to the world our daring Antaño. Twenty years later, we continue to grow its legacy that now includes four sub-lines and 24 vitolas in total. To do so, we are releasing Antaño Gran Reserva GT20, a special edition that highlights only the best of this legendary brand and commemorates 20 years of Antaño.

20 years of Antaño: Nicaragua’s Boldest Cigar

It was 2001 and in the dawn of the new Millennium. The cigar industry was still shaking off the jabs and uppercuts of the last few years. Natural catastrophes happened in Nicaragua and the implosion of the cigar bubble worldwide. But once again, we demonstrated our strong character!

We forged another what would become the indisputable king of the tobacco world: the Nicaraguan cigar.

This instance was sparked by the introduction of Antaño, an original Nicaraguan puro that transformed the appreciation and acclaim of Nicaraguan tobaccos forever; a blend that became popularly known as the “The Boldest Cigar out there.”

A favorite among cigar enthusiasts


Driven by its unparalleled boldness, Antaño continues to be a cigar enthusiast’s favorite, even two decades later since its release at the 2001 RTDA show. These traits result from using without alteration, the same leaves from the same tobacco varietals grown in the same plots of land in northern Nicaragua.

Today, the Antaño family has expanded to encompass four sub-lines with more than 24 vitolas in total, all distinguished by the authentic Antaño lineage: the original Antaño 1970, the super full-bodied Antaño Dark Corojo, the award-winning creamy Antaño CT, and the smooth and elegant Antaño Gran Reserva. You can learn more about them, in our cigars section.
