Joya de Nicaragua Antano CT Scores a 92 Rating From halfwheel
Our friends at Joya de Nicaragua have had their 2019 release of the Joya de Nicaragua Antano CT robusto reviewed by halfwheel and it scored a tremendous 92 rating.
Charlie Minato of halfwheel finds, “This is one of the best Joya de Nicaragua cigars I’ve smoked and certainly the least expensive of that esteemed tier. For me, the question with this cigar is would it be more Antaño or more Connecticut? As it turns out, the answer—from start to finish—is a very politically correct both. It’s never unhinged, but it’s also pretty full. It’s relatively balanced from start to finish, but it changes in fairly dramatic ways.”
Antaño CT, with its Ecuadorian Connecticut Shade wrapper, and Nicaraguan fillers and binder, delivers a medium to full body and strength, with dynamic creaminess and intense spicy notes. Intentionally pungent to showcase the contrasts between the expected subtleties of the CT shade, and the rich and potent flavors of Nicaraguan tobacco.
Thank you to the team at halfwheel for this amazing review and a well earned congratulations to the team at Joya de Nicaragua!
