IPCPR 2015: Cuatro Cinco is back!
This year’s IPCPR trade show was celebrated in New Orleans, Louisiana, where we officially presented Cuatro Cinco Reserva Especial by the hand of our exclusive U.S.A. distributor, Drew Estate.
From July 17th to 21st, the biggest brands of premium tobacco got together for the industry’s most important event in North America. We were present to meet and greet our friends and retailers, and share with them the exciting products coming out of our factory, the very first to manufacture cigars in Nicaragua.
Here’s a video interview where Juan Martínez, President of Joya de Nicaragua, explains more about the new Cuatro Cinco cigar line and gives a quick update on the Joya Red family:
As Juan states above, Cuatro Cinco Reserva Especial is a follow up to the overwhelming successful Cuatro Cinco Limited Edition, with a slight modification to the blend: “Instead of using 100% nicaraguan tobacco, in this case, we’re using a dominican binder. It adds to the complexity. It also adds to the easiness of burn of the cigar.”
Nevertheless, the most important quality of this cigar comes from its selected barrel aged filler tobaccos. The blend is not intended to be liquor flavored, but to gain a very special complexity and smoothness from this particular method of aging.
What is the other difference from the original Limited Edition?
Halfwheel.com described it perfectly: “Joya de Nicaragua has brought back the Cuatro Cinco in four sizes, although it’s a modified version as the original limited release cigar. The new version features a different binder, different sizes—Doble Robusto (5 x 56), Petit Corona (4 1/2 x 46), Toro (6 1/4 x 50) and Torpedo (6 x 52)—and slightly different packaging. It also carries the Reserva Especial name instead of Edición Limitada. If you need help quickly telling which is which, just look at the top of the band.”
We hope you get a chance to enjoy one of these super premium cigars very soon!
