The 2012 Gran Reserva follows the 2010 and 2011 releases in previous years. These have always scored well in our blind reviews. George Rico says that these cigars are made using the top 10% best leaf from the yearly crop and then aged for seven to eight years before the cigar is rolled. After rolled, the Gran Reservas are then aged for four to six years more years before sold.

"This was really a very good cigar. The flavors were full and rich, and even transitioned a bit during the cigar. The performance was exceptional as well, enhancing the enjoyment of the cigar. I have a suspicion as to what this cigar is...can't wait to see if I'm right." -Jason H. (Jokey Smurf)
Monday, July 3, 2017 — Managua, Nicaragua: The Antaño Gran Reserva asks you to do one thing only: to keep daring. It carries the same character as the Antaño 1970 but instead uses select extra aged, tobaccos only. Over 15 years ago the Antaño cigar defined the standard of full bodied cigars. The Antaño 1970 is an iconic cigar in the Joya de Nicaragua portfolio. Not only because of its unprecedented strength, and rich Nicaraguan character, but also as our best seller cigar in the US.
