Joya de Nicaragua “Antano 1970” Churchill
Allow me to wax poetic here about my favorite ” go to ” smoke.
This cigar is a full flavored and strong powerhouse jewel of a cigar. This Nicaraguan Puro has a Habano Criollo Colorado wrapper and plenty of Ligero for the kick. It posseses a smoothness and consistency not equaled in other cigars of this strength.
It does not come with training wheels for the novice smoker so I will rate it as best suited for the seasoned smokers who run in my circles.
The Antano 1970 comes in a great size range from an amazing little knockout Lancero to the beautiful beast that is the 6X60 Gran Perfecto.
I have never encountered any burn or draw problems and the consistency of the flavor profile is about the highest I have ever seen. You know your next Antano is going to be right. And just when I thought a cigar could not get much better, an all new Antano, the ” Dark Corojo ” joins the party for the one, two punch!! of cigar greatness.
I have smoked countless boxes in every size and each one has been enjoyed to the fullest. I could live with it being the only cigar I ever smoked and how many cigars can you say that about…
Strength – Strong and don’t make it your first cigar of the day.
