We are honored to have our JOYA line and our newly released Antaño Gran Reserva featured in Cigar Snob’s latest issue about Nicaragua. In the video below, you will find an exclusive behind the scenes look into the Antaño Gran Reserva photo shoot.


In recent years, Nicaragua has experienced unprecedented tourism growth. One of the most remarkable new developments in the country is the Mukul Resort and Spa. So, the Cigar Snob crew embarked on a two day adventure at Mukul, located in the renowned Emerald Coast of Nicaragua.

The Production Team Behind the Shoot

Even though the crew was on a tight schedule, there were no set plans for this shoot. This allowed for a lot of creative freedom to enjoy Mukul and the surrounding beaches. These are the credits of the amazing team behind the shoot:

Producer and Director: Ivan Ocampo
Executive Director: Erik Calvino
Model 1: Kristina Sheiter Elite Models
Model 2: Samantha Drew Wilhelmina Models Miami
