The Joya organization has been through many trials and tribulations, but their resurrection has brought with them some pretty incredible and highly rated cigars. This time around we review a staple in it’s line up being the Antaño 1970.
This cigar is beautiful in color and presents a subtle sheen on the wrapper. Perhaps what I enjoyed on his cigar the most was the draw. It was near perfect and others should work to replicate this type of perfection.
The flavors overall were enjoyable but there were moments in which I was confused or getting notes of things that just didn't belong, including aggressive bitterness and periods of colorlessness. Otherwise you will enjoy a subtle earthiness and a hint of sweetness that stand out as a constant enjoyable flavors.
At $7.70 per smoke, it’s certainly one worth exploring as there is nothing too complicated or harsh about this cigar, and on you should try especially if you enjoy Nicaraguan puros.
