Esteli, Nicaragua – Joya de Nicaragua has announced that the Joya Red Half Corona (3¾ x 46) is now available for sale in the U.S. Joya de Nicaragua introduced this new vitola to the Joya Red cigar line last September during the Inter-Tabac trade show held in Dortmund, Germany. It had only been available in the European market until now.
The Joya Red Half Corona is designed to satisfy the contemporary smoker’s desire for a quick, but extremely pleasurable smoke. Joya maintained the same lower priming Nicaraguan tobacco blend as the rest of the Joya Red line. This new vitola comes in boxes of 20 cigars and 5 count “petacas”.
Joya Red is a medium strength smoke packed with flavor, outstanding construction and sharp burn. The brand was originally released in July 2014 as an invitation to rediscover Joya’s modern and fun side (#REDiscoverJoya) from the hands of its young executive team. It has quickly gained popularity with contemporary consumers, making it Joya de Nicaragua’s second best selling brand in the US market in only a year and a half.
