Inside our factory, you will find a dedicated group of people working passionately to deliver the best-handcrafted cigars. Our team focus is to always create, always improve. As a result of this commitment, we are introducing Selección de Torcedor, a new program that we are launching this 2019 through our good friends at TAA.

Selección de Torcedor: A special blend selected by Joya Nicaragua’s torcedores

From now on, every year, Joya de Nicaragua’s torcedores will select a special blend and size. After that, it will be shared with a selected group of retailers around the world. To give our friends overseas a piece of what our torcedores are working on the factory floor thrills us.

Also, this program will work as a way to know the acceptance of the product by consumers. If it turns out to be well received, we will certainly make this special blend into a regular one.

The blend in 2019’s Selección de Torcedor is a very approachable smoke, smooth yet flavorful. With the selection of tobacco, this cigar unquestionably reflects the historic ties between Nicaragua and the US.

“We are very excited that consumers in the US will enjoy Dr. Cuenca’s favorite vitola with a rare piece that we’ve been working at the factory for quite a few years. I’m sure they’ll enjoy this 6×52 toro. As much, as we do in the factory.” – Said Mario Pérez, JDN’s Factory Manager.

Antaño Gran Reserva Presidente and Selección de Torcedor in store


The Antaño Gran Reserva Presidente was launched to commemorate the 50 years of TAA, the Nicaraguan cigar industry and its oldest factory, Fábrica de Tabacos Joya de Nicaragua.

It had a limited annual production of 1,000 boxes. It received accolades from experts like Cigar Aficionado, Cigar Coop, Cigar Dojo, Cigar Journal, Cigar Lovers, Cigar Snob, Developing Palates, and Halfwheel.

We are beyond excited to tell you that this TAA exclusive cigar is available again. This year, it’s coming to all TAA retailers around the country. And as an additional giveaway, a 5-pack of Selección de Torcedor 2019 will be given. This is the only way you will able to taste our 2019  Selección de Torcedor. We will be shipping our special blend to all the stores that ordered the Antaño Gran Reserva Presidente.

“We are so humbled by all the recognition we received in 2018 during our 50th anniversary, that we decided we needed to give an extra step to express our gratitude with the trade and the industry.”- Says Juan Martínez, Executive President of Joya de Nicaragua. “This is how we came up with the Selección de Torcedor program. That will be part of something even bigger.”
