Always popular since its introduction in the 1970's, the Joya De Nicaragua line was re-blended in 1996. Handmade in Esteli, Nicaragua, this smoke offers a mild-to-medium bodied taste thanks to an Ecuadorian-grown, Connecticut-seed wrapper. The line is available in no less than 10 sizes and we're featuring the biggest damn one they make! Joya De Nicaragua also introduced their Maduro Deluxe line in '96 which features a Costa Rica-grown maduro wrapper and a much fuller bodied smoking experience. Both lines are meticulously cured and skillfully rolled, earning them their distinction o f being a true "Jewel of Nicaragua." At 8.5 x 50, you could say the Presidente is a commitment. But don't be shy, this is a killer smoke! First note the shiny smooth Colorado Claro wrapper that encases this very well constructed Nicaraguan puro. It solid, though not as densely packed as the Credo Churchill. We found the flavor to be identifiably Nicaraguan, offering a slightly sweet taste and rich earthy spicy character. Like the Consul featured in 1999, we picked up a hint of cocoa and some cedar evident. The finish is relatively mild and doesn't hang around too long. We'd suggest you pair it up with a Porfidio Anejo Margarita on the rocks.
