The Joya de Nicaragua is known as the oldest cigar factory in Nicaragua. It has been making tobacco for five decades already. The Joya Silver Corona is a product of the factory’s stepping away from the traditional flavor cigar profile and packaging and moving towards the direction of what it considers as presentation and modern blending. It certainly has an attractive appearance with its glittering silver trim along with a quilted mesh pattern. However, what is deemed as the most interesting characteristic of the Joya de Nicaragua Joya Silver Corona is its performance.
Smoking the Joya de Nicaragua Joya Silver Corona starts with an earthy core and it is added by layers of roasted nuts, coffee bean, and dried fruits. Every stick of this cigar is medium to full-bodied yet still with a delicate harmony and balance that results in pleasure from the first puff to the last.
The Joya Silver Corona joins the arena of premium cigars with maximum value as its focus. The truth is that this cigar is remarkable in many fronts which include construction, price, profile complexity, and price. That is why these cigar sticks are highly rated and reputed by cigar publications as well as smokers.
These handmade and box-pressed cigars are made in the Joya de Nicaragua’s factory with Nicaraguan fillers and Mexican San Andres leaf while wrapped in a sweet Ecuadorian Habano wrapper.
Joya Silver Corona was introduced during the 50th anniversary celebration of the company. The launch of Joya Silver coincided with another 50th anniversary celebration that of the Joya de Nicaragua’s Cincó Décadas line.
