Joya de Nicaragua introduces a new member of the Antaño family: Antaño CT. The first blend of this family was released almost 20 years ago as a tribute to the power and the essence of the “The True Nicaraguan Puro”.
“Today, Antaño is not just one cigar blend, it is a family of products that invite smokers to Keep Daring, to try powerful and intense blends with distinctive Nicaraguan character. That is why we invite cigar lovers to dare to try the Antaño interpretation of what a Connecticut wrapped cigar should be” said Juan Ignacio Martínez, Executive President at Joya de Nicaragua.
Antaño CT, with its Ecuadorian Connecticut Shade wrapper, and Nicaraguan fillers and binder, delivers a medium to full body.
“This smoke is definitely an intense experience, the intriguing result of master blenders on a paradoxical quest: the creation of a flavor bomb like the rest of the Antaños but with this wrapper. It became a real challenge for us at the factory, torcedores and blenders, we all wanted to defy an industry mantra, we knew we could make a truly interesting CT cigar” expressed Mario Pérez, Joya de Nicaragua’s Factory Manager.
The Antaño CT line will come in 20 count boxes, in 4 different sizes: 6×54 Belicoso (MSRP $ 9.90), 6×50 Toro (MSRP $9.70), 5×52 Robusto (MSRP $8.45), and 5¼x46 Corona Gorda (MSRP $8.00). Shipments to stores nationwide will start in July 2019, after being showcased at the 87th IPCPR Convention and Trade Show in Las Vegas, Nevada.
