Joya de Nicaragua was the first cigar factory in Esteli, Nicaragua. It was founded 50 years ago and besides the production of their own line, it has been the go to factory for many cigar brands to get quality cigars manufactured and to access select leaf. After 50 years of success, the company is putting on a celebration and part of that celebration includes the launch of the Cinco Décadas (5 Decades).
In the Drew Estate press release for the Cinco Décadas, the company explains:
Joya de Nicaragua isn’t just a cigar company; it is lifeline, it is struggle, it is will to forge ahead and renew – it is Nicaragua itself. Since day one, Joya’s strength has lied in its people, who have always been committed to achieving the highest levels of excellence. JDN sets the standard for Nicaraguan cigar quality, showing consumers what it means to be the most Nicaraguan cigar.
The Cinco Décadas is a cigar not only made with an exclusive collection of tobaccos but also with fifty years of accumulated knowledge, experience and resilience unique to the first tobacco factory to craft premium handmade cigars in Nicaragua.
Dr. Alejandro Martínez Cuenca, Owner and Chairman of Joya de Nicaragua proudly states:
“Cinco Décadas is a Nicaraguan cigar of unparalleled elegance. This cigar is intended to celebrate a special moment in our company’s history and offer an opportunity to pause, reflect, give thanks – and look to the future.
It is our most memorable milestone yet and the most memorable of celebrations always require that you rise to the occasion. That’s what Cinco Decadas represents. We want consumers to know that in Cinco Décadas, they will find a cigar so premium that the fact that there’s one in the humidor, will be enough to celebrate,”
