Estelí, Nicaragua – Número Uno was originally blended for World Leaders. Handed out by Nicaraguan ambassadors on official missions around the world. In 2018, we shared some with media and special audiences and got our highest rating in 50 years. We are now releasing it nationwide as part of Obras Maestras, the designation of our ultra-premium family of cigars.
This ‘masterpiece’ cigar provides medium body and strength, in a smoke that is refined, complex and elegant. Creaminess complemented with light pepper notes, making it a top-ranked, exclusive, diplomat lifestyle experience. Literally.“Número Uno was developed as a unique gift and later an event-exclusive cigar, and although it wasn’t the original intention, we decided to make Número Uno available to a bigger audience. However it will remain as something exclusive, as production will be limited to 1,500 boxes a year for the global market and will be available only in selected retailers around the globe”, said Dr. Alejandro Martínez Cuenca, Chairman of Joya de Nicaragua.This blend comes in only one vitola, L’Ambassadeur, a parejo 6 5/8 x 44 tailed lonsdale. In the United States, it will be available only at DDRP brick and mortar stores, in 25 count boxes, with an MSRP of $15.00 per stick. Número Uno uses a silky and delicate Ecuadorian Connecticut shade wrapper over a Nicaraguan binder and Nicaraguan fillers.
Número Uno will be showcased at the upcoming IPCPR 87th Annual Convention and Trade Show in Las Vegas in June 2019 for US retailers, and at Intertabac in Dortmund, Germany in September 2019 for retailers in the rest of the world. “We will start shipping to stores early this fall, production is slower than in other products as only a selected group of very skilled rollers are assigned to this project”, expressed Juan Ignacio Martínez, Executive President.
With Número Uno, along with Cuatro Cinco and Cinco Décadas, the Obras Maestras family now provides a wider selection of flavors, aromas and strengths that cater to ranging palates of connoisseur smokers. However, what they all offer is the unique experience of enjoying the best cigars crafted by the most seasoned torcedores from the oldest cigar factory in Nicaragua.
Estelí, Nicaragua – In 2018, Joya de Nicaragua celebrated its 50th anniversary by sharing with consumers around the world the best cigar that has ever come out of its factory: Cinco Décadas. From the very first day the company’s strength has lied in its people, who have always been committed to achieving the highest levels of excellence. Today we pay tribute to the visionaries that ignited the Nicaraguan cigar industry, Juan Francisco Bermejo and Simón Camacho. Now, the finest blend of Cinco Decades honors their lofty standard, therefore we named it Fundador.
“When we conceived the concept of the brand, we decided that every year until the next big anniversary, we would nationally release a size that would pay tribute to key characters that shaped the story of our company, and thus, today we commemorate the vision of two immigrant businessmen that transformed our country” said Dr. Alejandro Martinez Cuenca, Chairman and Owner of Joya de Nicaragua.Cinco Décadas, with a perfect construction, is a cigar of unparalleled elegance. Made exclusively with our prime extra-vintage leaves taken from our most exclusive collection of tobaccos, it carries an immaculate balance accompanied by a luxurious complexity of sweet and spicy flavors. Its silky-smooth smoke delivers a rich and fulfilling experience.“This stunning cigar comes in a 6 x 54 soft pressed format that will captivate you the moment you light it” extolled Dr. Martínez Cuenca. This Gran Toro comes in a 10ct box with an MSRP of $20 per stick, and will only be available at selected retailers around the world. In the United States it is a DDRP Exclusive product, that will be shipping as of July 2019.
Cinco Décadas Fundador will be showcased this June at the 87th IPCPR Convention and Trade Show in Las Vegas for all US retailers, and at Intertabac in Dortmund in September. We invite all to rise to the occasion and pay tribute to those who made it possible for us to enjoy Nicaraguan cigars around the world, and to already expect next year’s commemoration to other protagonists of the story of The Most Nicaraguan Cigar.
