The Joya de Nicaragua Cuatro Cinco was made to celebrate 45 years of history for Nicaragua’s oldest cigar maker. Founded in 1968, Joya de Nicaragua (“Jewel of Nicaragua”)) quickly became one of the most popular brands sold in America thanks to the massive supply gap created by the Cuban embargo. Through the years, the company would hit the highest heights, becoming the official cigar of the White House, but would also fall to the lowest lows as the factory was bombed and burned in the 1970s during civil unrest. A core group of workers would keep the brand alive until it was revived in the 1990s by new ownership. And today, we can celebrate a storied cigar company that’s a true Nicaraguan puro.
Here’s to the next 45, Joya de Nicaragua!
The Cuatro Cinco is made, of course, in Estelí, using five-year-aged ligero that was cultivated there and in Jalapa with this sole cigar in mind. Aging takes place in oak barrels, giving this cigar a fantastic smoky flavor. The blend is finished off with an oily Nicaraguan Habano wrapper, making this one true-to-the-soil puro. One puff will give you the signature earthy coffee, nuts, and spice that Nicaraguan leaf is known for, and you’ll know why Joya de Nicaragua has stood the test of time.
