Tuesday, October 19, 2021 — Earlier this year, Joya de Nicaragua announced the launch of Dos Cientos, a commemorative limited-edition cigar to celebrate the bicentennial of Central America’s independence from the Spanish empire. This one-time release is part of Joya de Nicaragua’s Obras Maestras series, which is composed of the company’s most prestigious cigars. After a couple of months of delay due to materials and logistics problems, cigar enthusiasts around the United States will finally have access to this ultra-limited and special cigar beginning on Oct. 18. “This year we have faced enormous challenges … from longer lead times in transportation, to limited capacities from our vendors … to cope with the surge of demand we are seeing,” says Daniel Barrios, Joya de Nicaragua’s Global Commercial Manager. “The launch of Dos Cientos wasn’t an exception.” A Drew Diplomat Program exclusive product, Dos Cientos (6 x 54, Gran Toro) is medium-bodied and smooth, yet complex. Available in 21-count boxes, one cigar within each box is wrapped in special paper. Joya de Nicaragua hopes that consumers will save that specially wrapped cigar to enjoy during a virtual celebration that will be held on Nov. 18th, 2021. “We invite our followers around the world to keep an eye on our social media where we will be announcing how to reserve your spot for our virtual event,” Joya de Nicaragua’s Executive President, Juan Martinez says. “We are very excited about it and working hard to give everyone a great experience. We want people to learn about our history, about the product and how it can be paired, but more important, about how our industry was built on the shoulders of a great community.” ABOUT JOYA DE NICARAGUA Joya de Nicaragua is a family-owned tobacco grower and cigar factory.
