Numero Uno was originally a cigar given exclusively to world leaders by Nicaraguan ambassadors. It was first released to the public in 2018 as an event only cigar, then to the broader public in 2019. Now in 2021, the company is bringing back the original two sizes as an annual release.
Numero Uno is part of Joya de Nicaragua’s Obras Maestras line. The two sizes available are L’Ambassadeur (6 5/8 x 44, Lancero) and Le Premier (6 7/8 x 48, Churchill). The blend uses an Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper and Nicaraguan binder and fillers.
It is very exciting for us to announce that we are preparing the annual batch of Numero Uno for the United States. Receiving another iconic award this year, now by Cigar Aficionado, reaffirms that our commitment to quality is recognized by the industry and cigar lovers around the world, and we are happy we were able to guarantee the annual allocation plus additional boxes to satisfy the overwhelming demand for the fantastic cigar.
The 2021 annual release will offer a limited amount of each vitola, exclusively for Drew Diplomat Program participants. The 2021 Numero Uno limited edition cigars will be available beginning in August. The MSRP for L’Ambassadeur will be $15.75/cigar and $16.95/cigar for Le Premier.
