Today, Joya de Nicaragua announced a new cigar exclusive to TAA (Tobacconists’ Association of America) retailers: Cuatro Cinco Edición Americana. This cigar is an extension from their Cuatra Cinco line originally launched to celebrate their 45th anniversary. It will be exclusive to the United States as the name suggests.
When we were deciding what the next TAA product should be, we knew it had to be special. And when the team proposed the Belicoso, the decision was made, there’s no other vitola in the Cuatro Cinco family that smokes closer to the original limited edition than this one.Juan Ignacio Martinez, Executive President
Cuatro Cinco Edición Americana production will be limited to 500 boxes, each containing 10 cigars. The cigar itself is a 6 x 54 Belicoso. The blend uses a Nicaraguan Criollo wrapper, Dominican binder, and Grade A Nicaragua fillers. Each cigar is aged for a minimum of one year in vintage white oak barrels that were used in a world renowned rum distillery.
These are some of the best cigars that come out of our factory. The stories we tell with them need to be special. We have selected the Bald Eagle because of what it represents to our American friends, an example of stamina, power, and freedom. In 2021, JDN is celebrating Nicaragua’s independence bicentennial, and what a better symbol to connect us both than the symbol of freedom.Daniel Barrios, Global Commercial Manager.
The Cuatro Cinco Edicion Americana TAA Exclusive will be officially launched during the TAA Virtual Conference on March 23rd and will be shipped out to stores over the summer.
It has been an exciting experience being on this side of the industry. Talking to friends and customers to evaluate this project has been a great experience. I’m excited to see how this continues to foster the partnership between TAA and Joya de Nicaragua.Sarah Hearton, recently appointed US Field Market Manager at Drew Estate.
