Joya Red

Joya de Nicaragua is old—you may even call them the grandaddy of Nicaraguan tobacco. Of course, in the cigar world, being old is a badge of honor! Nonetheless, the Joya Red sets out to please the modern palate, doing what JDN does best—pure, 100% Nicaraguan. With the combination of full, easy-to-love flavors and a ridiculously affordable price point, Joya Red is often regarded as one of the best bang-for-your-buck smokes on the market.

Joya Red was well-received upon its release, winning the No. 9 Cigar of the Year award from Cigar Dojo in 2014.

This is a medium bodied cigar. The combination of these premium tobaccos from our beloved Nicaragua results in a balanced blend with medium strength and captivating flavors. Smooth nutty notes and hints of pepper.
