Joya de Nicaragua releases Número Uno at the IPCPR 2019.
“Número Uno was developed as a unique gift and later an event-exclusive cigar, and although it wasn’t the original intention, we decided to make Número Uno available to a bigger audience. However it will remain as something exclusive, as production will be limited to 1,500 boxes a year for the global market and will be commercialized only in selected retailers around the globe”, said Dr. Alejandro Martínez Cuenca, Chairman of Joya de Nicaragua.
This blend comes in only one vitola, L’Ambassadeur, a parejo 6 5/8 x 44 tailed Lonsdale. In the United States, it will be available only at DDRP Specialty Retail stores, in 25 count boxes, with an MSRP of $15.00 per stick. Número Uno uses a silky and delicate Ecuadorian Connecticut shade wrapper over a Nicaraguan binder and Nicaraguan fillers
Número Uno will be showcased at the upcoming IPCPR 87th Annual Convention and Trade Show in Las Vegas in June 2019 for US retailers, and at Intertabac in Dortmund, Germany in September 2019 for retailers in the rest of the world. “We will start shipping to stores early this fall, production is slower than in other products as only a selected group of very skilled rollers are assigned to this project”, expressed Juan Ignacio Martínez, Executive President.
