"Other then the occasional cardboard taste that would pop in it was a great smoke. An interesting profile that had several profile changes kept me engaged till the end. I would smoke it again and hope that the paper flavor wasn't present." -Alan (Eulogy)

"Wow, this is world class stick. Never have I had such a well balanced, nuanced, medium bodied smoke. The three transitions provided a ménage à trois of deliciousness that would satisfy any hardened and seasoned cigar smoker. I am floored by the quality of this cigar. BOX WORTHY. " -John A. (Bostoneo)
As the oldest and first premium cigar factory in Nicaragua, Joya de Nicaragua already has a phenomenal legacy. In 2018, they will bolster that legacy with the introduction of Cinco Décadas. This is a very special cigar made with an exclusive blend of tobaccos, and the 50 years of dedication and knowledge of the wonderful people at Joya de Nicaragua.
As we close out our series on Puro Sabor 2018, let's take a look at the events that made the week special. In all honesty, even the everyday lunches were special events. It seemed like every time we gathered for a meal, the organizers pulled out all the stops and made it a grand occasion instead of just another meal. One of my favorite things about all of these events was the reality of being able to sit down with people from all over the world, all walks of life, and all manner of experience in the cigar industry. We were all the same at these events. It was just an enormous group of friends gathering for a meal, some drinks, and great conversation.
