A CLASSIC REBORN: Joya de Nicaragua Expands Distribution of Beloved Clásico Original

Joya De Nicaragua

From Joya de Nicaragua:

In 2023, Joya de Nicaragua announced the return of the Clásico Original to the US market, initially as an exclusive for Club de Amigos, a community of JDN's elite retailers. Since its launch, it's become a hot topic among cigar shops, praised as one of the most sought-after cigars due to its unbeatable price-to-quality relation.

The Joya de Nicaragua Clásico Original holds the distinction of being the oldest Nicaraguan cigar, born from the country's first cigar factory. During the Nixon era, it became the official cigar of the White House, serving as a premium alternative to the increasingly scarce Cuban cigars. It remains Joya de Nicaragua's global best-seller and a true classic, often cited as perfect for all cigar enthusiasts.

The Clásico Original features an Ecuadorian Connecticut shade wrapper that beautifully complements its rich Nicaraguan fillers and binders. The result is a mild, woody, and delicate smoke with creamy notes and subtle hints of pepper. Presented in a box of 25 cigars, the Clásico Original comes in four sizes:

  • Robusto (5" x 50) - MSRP $8.75

  • Toro (6" x 50) - MSRP $9.25 ​ ​ ​ ​

  • Churchill (6 7/8" x 48) - MSRP $9.50

  • Torpedo (6" x 52) - MSRP $9.75

"Considering the legacy of the Clásico Original and its popularity in America since the 70s and 80s, we've decided to open up its sales to all US retailers," says Juan Martinez, Executive President. "This cigar has always belonged to the people. It's no longer just about our history; it's about the memories it has created for cigar lovers over the years."

Joya de Nicaragua invites all US retailers to contact their local Drew Estate Territory Managers to learn more about carrying the Clásico Original.
