Joya De Nicaragua Antano Dark Corojo Pesadilla 5 Pack
Joya de Nicaragua Antaño Dark Corojo is the embodiment of the Nicaraguan power cigar. The oily, dark brown capa foreshadows the extra full-bodied flavors of its complex, pungent blend, containing only mature, locally cultivated leaf. With each draw, the puro builds in strength to leave even the most jaded smoker satisfied and spent. This is a cigar for the experienced connoisseur who not only appreciates, but craves unadulterated boldness in a cigar. Novices need not light.
Let me first say, Joya De Nicaragua is one of my top 3 favorite brands. That being said, I recently purchased the Antano Dark Corojo Pesadilla 5 pack with high expectations based on other consumer reviews. These cigars are beautiful to look at. However, as I began to light my first one, the wrapper began unfurling. This proceeded throughout the entire smoke. In addition, possible because of the wrapper the burn was ridiculously poor. At one point, there was more than 3/4 inch difference from one side to the other. The draw felt very weak. Overall, I was thoroughly displeased with this stick. The taste, as with almost all Joya s was good. For my money, I would ditch the Antanos and stick to the Joya Celebracion Series.
Another perfect Joya de Nicaragua Cigar. Looks, Flavour, Construction, Consistency, Wrapper and Filler. Pure Perfection.
Waited a very long time to get my hands on a Joya de Nicaragua. This cigar is pure perfection. Great construction and consistency. A great looking cigar, cut and purge perfect. Light and draw perfect. Tight ash pack with silver and black ash with lots of luscious smoke and nice plume. This cigar feels great in the hand with a nice flavour. They don?t come much better than this. In fact I am on my second whilst writing this. Well worth the wait.
watch out! starts medium, great corojo taste, builds to the middle, and by then you should consider putting it down. you will feel this one in your gut. fully packed, firm, strong in effect more than on the palate. get into this one and finish it, and you will know what power is about! save for after garlic meatballs or steak au poive. if you smoke four or five cigars per day, one of these in your rotation will cut that total to two or three. the most satisfying cigar i have ever smoked.
