Joya de Nicaragua Celebracion Toro

So I performed a search in this forum and by no surprise, I found posts on the Antano and not the Celebracion. First of all, if you haven't tried a Joya - do yourself a favor and pick one up. I went down to my B&M and picked up the Joya de Nicaragua Celebracion on Friday after having a bad experience with the Clasico (bad draw). Basically, I wanted to give Joya another chance.

I don't have a refined pallet as of yet - but I am working on it. The Celebracion had a smooth draw with a generous amount of smoke. Medium-Full as far as strength so not as strong as the Antano but IMO stronger than the Clasico. The criollo wrapper has a subtle peppery smell - and toasted easily. Most of this cigar was pretty consistant for me - I did notice that 1/4 of the way through, it opened up a bit more - which was perfect.

I think I may have just found my go to cigar folks.

Cheers

    I've had one of these resting for a minute. Thanks for the insight on it. I'll probably be smoking it sooner now. I LOVE Joya. The Antano and Antano Dark Corojo are phenomenal cigars.

    Your are right on with your review. its much less strong and spicy to me than the Antano, which makes it nice for a go to cigar. The criollo wrapper really takes the bite out of the cigar. I bought a box of those, I think the consul 4.2X52 +/- about two years ago after liking the Antano. Reminds me to try some again. Thanks for the review.

    Right on Maduro - I love Joya as well. I was so happy to experience the Celebracion and be so pleased - it now has a cozy 68/70 home in my humi

    Dude! I smoked the Celebraccion yesterday. I'm in love. It reminded me of the original Padilla Miami with more pepper. I absolutely loved it.
  • Yeah i've been thinking about it - I need to pick up some of these quick. Definitely my new 'go to'
