Joya de Nicaragua’s Número Uno was originally given handed out to world leaders by Nicaraguan ambassadors on official missions. In 2019 it was made a regular production cigar and the company has added several sizes since then. The original release was L’Ambassadeur, a 6 5/8 x 44 Lancero, then the next year they added Le Premier a 6 7/8 x 48 Churchill. Now the company is adding Número Uno L’Attaché, a 5 1/2 x 42 Corona exclusively for Club de Amigos, Joya de Nicaragua’s top retailers. Número Uno is part of Joya de Nicaragua’s Obras Maestras line.
The last three years have been an amazing journey for Número Uno. When we were thinking what was next for this cigar, we remembered the beautiful smoke experience that this vitola provided and the decision to relaunch it was made.
Daniel Barrios, Joya de Nicaragua’s Global Commercial Manager
The blend for Número Uno uses an Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper and Nicaraguan binder and filler. We rated the original L’Ambassadeur here giving it a 93, and the Le Premier here giving it a 93 as well. It also made our top 25 lists in 2019 and 2020.
We have no words to describe the pride that Número Uno has given to Joya de Nicaragua. It feels like this cigar marked a new chapter in our history. Número Uno L’Attaché is the vitola that every cigar aficionado should be smoking this year.
