Joya de Nicaragua has launched its first regional Limited-Edition exclusively for the Asian market: Cuatro Cinco-Edición Asia.
This is a a box-pressed 4 3/4 x 60 belicoso vitola that Joya calls a gran consul and is limited to just 1,000 boxes of 10 cigars.
It uses the same blend as the regular Cuatro Cinco Reserva Especial: a Nicaraguan criollo wrapper from Jalapa over a Dominican volado binder and Nicaraguan fillers, including five-year-old ligero that is aged in white oak barrels.
The packaging is a slightly different take on the normal Cuatro Cinco release, both the box and the bands add the Pixiu, a mythical Chinese creature that looks like a lion with wings.
“We wanted this masterpiece to revolve around Pixiu, a Chinese hybrid mythical creature believed to be a protector and wealth promoter, and is a figure ever-present in powerful and grandiose feats of victory in battle, representing the values of courage and resilience that are common between our Nicaraguan and Asian cultures,” said Juan Ignacio Martínez, executive president of Joya de Nicaragua. “This is not about cultural appropriation; on the contrary, is an expression of cultural interconnection and profound friendship.”
We have managed to secure a few boxes for our UK based clients. Once sold we will be unable to replace them.
