JOYA BLACK CIGARS BY JOYA DE NICARAGUA
Joya de Nicaragua Black “Joya Black,” is a new release from Nicaragua’s oldest cigar factory. Joya de Nicaragua will be expanding on the successful Joya Red cigar for 2016 with the introduction of the Joya de Nicaragua Black. The new cigar will continue the modern direction the company has been taking in the last few years, and the Joya de Nicaragua Black has the same look & feel from Joya Red, but with more strength and complexity.
This Nicaraguan cigar is comprised of dark Mexican San Andres wrappers with fillers from the fertile regions of Esteli, Condega and Jalapa. The result is a nutty, peppery smoke with hints of toast, coffee and leather. This blend is sure to capture new and old fans of this historic brand, and delivers a rich smoking experience, a full bodied cigar that is well constructed and balanced; not over powering its rich tobacco flavor profile.
