JOYA DE NICARAGUA ANTANO
WRAPPER: Nicaragua BINDER: Nicaragua FILLER: Nicaragua
Once regarded as one of the finest cigars in the world, this is a brand that was all but destroyed by Nicaragua's civil war. Reprised by Tabaccos Puros de Nicaragua S.A. in 2002, the new Antaño 1970 is a potent blend of Nicaraguan black tobaccos wrapped in a dark rosado-hued Nicaraguan Criollo wrapper. Extremely peppery on the palate, this is a very powerful cigar that is overwhelming to most, while perfect for those who crave the very strongest of smokes. It just may have to enough nicotine to buzz an entire third-world country and is so strong it could grow hair on a catcher's shin guards!
