Ready to give up your Fuente OpusX cigars? Don't answer until you've tried this awesome, full-bodied series from Joya De Nicaragua cigars that Cigar Insider scored 91. The Antano (Spanish for 'yesteryear'), is a smooth-smoking reincarnation of Joya's original full-flavored blend of the 1970s. Joya De Nicaragua Antano 1970 Gran Consul Dark Natural cigars are perfectly-balanced with bold Nicaraguan Ligero leaves draped in thick, juicy, extra-dark Nicaraguan wrappers. Tasting is believing; and don't forget to fasten your seatbelt.

I don t know if it s my palate or if the 5-pack I got from the Monster is just too old [as it has been the case with other recent purchases], but this was disappointing. Showed hints of molasses at the foot and on the cold draw, but then the smoke started harsh, with dark, almost charred tobacco flavors. Got more smooth on the second third but was still one-dimensional and lacking in flavor; was at its most engaging during the last third. Ash was a little flaky too. On the upside, the full-bodied tobacco paired really nicely with the Lagavulin scotch. Fortunately Famous will let me return the remaining sticks for a credit.less

If there were an award for most improved over time this would be it!Terrible fresh outa the wrapper, but in the humi at 72% for 4-6 months - one of the best ever - Great construction, burn %26 packed with tobacco. Like a great bourbon, just gets better with age.Let em sit, then you can thank me later. less

I'm sorry, but no way was this full-bodied. It was pretty but weak and almost tasteless. This was not the Joya De Nicaragua I remember.less
