Back in 1968, when Joya de Nicaragua came to life, nobody could have imagined how cigars would end up influencing the future of the town of Estelí in Northern Nicaragua. Even retailers in the U.S. would have never guessed that within just 50 years, their customers would be craving Nicaraguan cigars – or that the country would become the top seller of premium, handrolled cigars in America, surpassing every other country on the planet.

From the desk of Joya
“If a new smoker asks me ‘What cigar should I start with?’ I always suggest the Clásico. It’s a cigar that welcomes you to this incredible world in the most delicate way. In fact, this was the first cigar I ever tried. In that vein, this is a gift to America’s new generation of cigar smokers, so they can begin to understand the legacy that this very special Nicaraguan cigar carries with it.”Juan Martinez, Executive President of Joya de Nicaragua
