Esteli, Nicaragua - The 1980s were a critical decade for Nicaragua and Nicaraguan cigars. Two events were fundamental in shaping the country’s history during that decade: the civil war and the economic embargo, declared by the United States against the Central American nation in 1985. The embargo became an enormous obstacle for Nicaraguan products, as they were prohibited from entering the US Market, and its citizens could no longer enjoy Nicaraguan crafted cigars. But once more from obstacles came opportunity.
With its primary market forbidden indefinitely, Joya de Nicaragua had to seek alternatives to sell its cigars. This is how Joya de Nicaragua found in Europe one of its greatest allies, emerging as the first brand of Nicaraguan cigars to be enjoyed in the old world, and eventually becoming one of the best known Nicaraguan brands around the globe.
Commemorating the resisliency of Joya de Nicaragua thirty five years ago, the company is proud to introduce Cinco Decadas El Embargo, a limited edition 6 x 60 box pressed gigante with only 500 boxes of 10 cigars produced. Respecting its origin, it will not be available for sale in the USA.
With a perfect construction, this cigar is of unparalleled elegance. Made exclusively with Joya De Nicaragua’s prime extra vintage leaves, taken from their most exclusive collection of tobaccos, it carries an immaculate balance accompanied by a luxurious complexity of sweet and spicy flavours. Its silky smooth smoke delivers a rich and fulfilling experience.
Joya De Nicaragua was established in 1968, making it the very first and oldest premium handmade cigar manufacturer in Nicaragua. They are located in the city of Esteli, in what has come to be known as the tobacco capital of the world. Joya De Nicaragua S.A is a 100% Nicaraguan owned and operated company that develops, manufactures and markets the internationally renowned cigar brands in over 40 countries.
The history of Joya goes hand in hand with Nicaragua's evolution over the last five decades as one of the most complex and enchanting countries in Latin America. The richness of their history allows them to be conscious and humbled of who they are, allowing them to talk about their experiences with authenticity.
