Joya de Nicaragua is adding the Gran Reserva to it's best selling line in the US, The Antaño 1970.
From Drew Estate's press release:
"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.
...“The main alteration that comes with the Antaño Gran Reserva is that we have added fillers that have been aged for up to five years. As a result, we have obtained a more refined and mature version of the Antaño 1970.” said Juan Ignacio Martínez, Executive President of Joya de Nicaragua at a meeting room at the factory that many Antaño enthusiasts have visited.
Our Factory Manager further commented “We are excited to introduce this cigar at IPCPR 2017, with the Antaño Gran Reserva we are further solidifying our portfolio by adding to our line of Nicaraguan original cigars.”
The refined and matured Antaño Gran Reserva can be found in three different presentations:
- Belicoso 6x54
- Robusto Grande 51/2 x52 Box Pressed
- Gran Cónsul 4 ¾ x 60
The Antaño Gran Reserva will begin shipping in August."
