Joya de Nicaragua and Drew Estate are celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the Tobacconist Association of America (TAA), and 10 years of distribution partnership, by introducing the Antaño Gran Reserva Presidente, exclusively for TAA.
Five decades ago, two great institutions in the cigar world began operations; the TAA and Fábrica de Tabacos Joya de Nicaragua. TAA is a group of selected tobacco retailers and specialists in the US and JDN is Nicaragua’s first cigar factory in operation, and the referent of what it means to be the most Nicaraguan cigar.The Antaño Gran Reserva Presidente is Dr. Alejandro Martínez Cuenca’s favorite vitola. The Presidente, is an elegant 6 3/4 x 50 box pressed cigar, an extension of the Antaño Gran Reserva.
It uses 100% Nicaraguan tobacco matured to perfection for 5 years. It’s a full body and complex cigar similar to the Antano line, but due to the age of the proprietary filler leaves it’s a much smoother smoke. It showcases the unique character of Nicaraguan tobacco with refined notes of spice, leather, and wood. The brand was originally launched in 2005 as a limited edition. It was reintroduced to the market in 2017.
“When I requested the Gran Reserva blend in the Presidente size, it immediately became my private smoke,” says Dr. Martínez Cuenca, Joya de Nicaragua’s Chairman and CEO. “This is by far my personal vitola and the one that I request the factory for my daily smokes.”
“I decided to share it only for special occasions,” he continues. “I can’t think of a better opportunity than this shared celebration of five decades of perseverance and companionship between TAA, its members, and Joya de Nicaragua.”
The New Antaño Gran Reserva Presidente will be presented at the 50th TAA Convention. The event will be at Casa de Campo, La Romana in the Dominican Republic from April 29th to May 3rd.
The Antaño Gran Reserva Presidente will be available exclusively for TAA Members and it will retail at $12.50 per stick. It will also be available in three sizes: Robusto Grande Box-Pressed (5 1/2 x 52), Belicoso (6 x 54), and Gran Consul (4 3/4 x 60). The 20 count box will begin shipping in May 2018.
