Joya de Nicaragua Antano 1970 Belicoso cigars can take on the best Cuba has to offer and blow 'em away. Their extra full-body, depth of flavor, complexity and heady aroma are absolutely sensational, and consistent from smoke to smoke. A 'muscle car' of a cigar that's also surprisingly affordable.
If you like La Gloria Cubana series R, you are going to LOVE the Joya Antano line! They are a mainstay in my humidor. If you dont love these cigars email me and I will send you out some mild girlie man cigars for free....
I have enjoyed this cigar for several years, and never disappointed. Lot's of flavor and will made.
Easily the best of the Antano line. The belicoso perfectly marries strength and flavor without being overwhelming in any one area, none of the other sizes do this as well. Construction is excellent, and again this one performs better than the other vitolas in the line, offering a razor sharp burn and perfect draw every time.If you are looking to try this blend, look no further than the belicoso, it does the best job of showcasing what the Antano line has to offer.
The flavor of this cigar is fantastic. I love the size and shape of the Belicoso albeit a little odd. My ony complaint of the 2 boxes I've smoked is that they do not stay lit quite as well as most cigars. I had my last one from a box I bought 6 months ago and it is has a richness and a coffee bean flavor that can't be beat. It's in my top 5 of all time list and I've been smoking for 8 years and tried hundreds of cigars including Cubans when they were great.....and I haven't found a great cuban in over 3 years.
