This Holiday season was joy-a-ful! For the first time, we launched a special holiday giveaway where we asked Joya fans to post a creative holiday photo with on our Joya de Nicaragua cigars. The response was phenomenal, we received tons of super fun and creative Joya Holiday Challenge pictures.

In the end, our friend M.Kemal Saatçıoğlu from Turkey was chosen as the lucky winner. He will receive a signed copy of our limited edition book ‘Cinco Décadas: The Rise of the Nicaraguan Cigar’. Check out his amazing photo and make sure to follow him. We especially love the line-up.
