Número Uno was originally for World Leaders. Handed out by Nicaraguan ambassadors on official missions around the world. In 2018, we shared some with media and special audiences and got our highest rating in 50 years. Therefore, we are now releasing it nationwide as part of Obras Maestras, the designation of our ultra-premium family of cigars.

Número Uno: A Unique Masterpiece

“Número Uno was developed as a unique gift and later an event-exclusive cigar, and although it wasn’t the original intention, we decided to make Número Uno available to a bigger audience.” – Said Dr. Alejandro Martínez Cuenca, Chairman of Joya de Nicaragua.

Número Uno

Número Uno release will be at:

  • IPCPR 87th Annual Convention and Trade Show in Las Vegas in June 2019 for US retailers.
  • Intertabac in Dortmund, Germany in September 2019 for retailers in the rest of the world.

However, it will remain as something exclusive. That is a limited production of 1,500 boxes a year for the global market. In the same way, only selected retailers around the globe will commercialize it.

“We will start shipping to stores early this fall, production is slower than in other products as only a selected group of very skilled rollers are assigned to this project.” – Expressed Juan Ignacio Martínez, Executive President.

Masterful Creaminess

Número Uno

Número Uno uses a silky and delicate Ecuadorian Connecticut shade wrapper over a Nicaraguan binder and Nicaraguan fillers.

This ‘masterpiece’ cigar provides medium body and strength, in a refined, complex and elegant smoke.  Creaminess complemented with light pepper notes, making it a top-ranked, exclusive, diplomat lifestyle experience. Literally.

This blend comes in only one vitola, L’Ambassadeur, a parejo 6 5/8 x 44 tailed Lonsdale. In the United States, it will be available only at DDRP Specialty Retail stores, in 25 count boxes, with an MSRP of $15.00 per stick.

Número Uno was named the Top Cigar of 2018 by halfwheel, and certainly, its packaging has been delicately designed to address the brands essence.
