Quick Smoke: Joya de Nicaragua Antaño Dark Corojo Peligroso

8 Sep 2012

Each Saturday and Sunday we’ll post a Quick Smoke: not quite a full review, just our brief verdict on a single cigar of “buy,” “hold,” or “sell.”


Joya de Nicaragua is (deservedly) getting a lot of attention these days for its newest release, Cuenca y Blanco. But I recently sat down with the Peligroso size (5 x 44) of the older Antaño Dark Corojo blend. This Nicaraguan puro boasts a dark, oily wrapper, excellent combustion qualities, and a bold, rich flavor of espresso, dark chocolate, and spice. It’s a wonderful smoke that’s full-bodied yet smooth and never harsh. What’s more, the Peligroso is a great value at around $5-6 for a single.

Verdict = Buy.

    Thanks for the review, I will have to try this size. I love the box pressed La Niveladora version!
