There is a reason this cigar is named Joya de Nicaragua. Meaning “Jewel of Nicaragua,” this cigar was created in Nicaragua’s FIRST cigar factory. This brand has always been popular in American culture- a favorite of elite society, politicians, and a standard presence in the White House. They’ve been a strong force in the cigar world for over 40 years and the use of beautifully strong Nicaraguan tobaccos is kinda their thing.
This year, they’ve introduced the Joya de Nicaragua Cabinetta for us to enjoy. The first thing you notice about this cigars is the visually striking dual wrapper. But this, my friends, is not intended as just a feast for the eyes. The choice and construction of the wrapper leaves is what the entire flavor profile of the Cabinetta is based around. It’s initially rolled with an Ecuadorian wrapper leaf then finished with that amazingly seductive Nicaraguan wrapper. So as you make your way through the cigar, you receive sensations of sweet with spice, and everything nice. And though it’s watered down to a mellow, medium body in the strength department, the flavor is bursting with intricacies and a uniqueness that is hard to describe. The only way to find out? Smoke one!
