Joya de Nicaragua first introduced the Antaño 1970 cigar in 2001, often thought to be the strongest cigar of its time and helping to usher in today’s full-bodied Nicaraguan preferences.

Today, on Antaño’s 20th anniversary, the series has expanded to include four blends: Antaño, Antaño Dark Corojo, Antaño CT, and Antaño Gran Reserva. To celebrate the occasion, JDN will introduce the Antaño Gran Reserva GT20, billed as a more select version of the already-select Antaño Gran Reserva line.

We chose to do a special version of our Antaño Gran Reserva blend, with all Nicaraguan leaves aged for more than five years. In this way, we have the original tobaccos and the original character, but with a smoother and more complex flavor profile that just upgrades the smoking experience to a whole new level. We guarantee this is the best Antaño you’ll ever smoke; that’s why we call it our GT!Juan Ignacio Martinez, executive president of Joya de Nicaragua

Rolled in a singular 6″ x 52 “Gran Toro” format, the cigar’s GT20 name ties into both its size, as well as being a high-performance offering. The blend is based on the standard Antaño Gran Reserva cigar (which itself is based on the original Antaño cigar), which features a Nicaraguan Corojo oscuro wrapper, Nicaraguan binder, and all-Nicaraguan fillers from the country’s Jalapa, Condega, and Estelí growing regions. With Antaño Gran Reserva GT20, all tobaccos have been aged for more than five years; additionally, the leaves are said to be more refined selections than what is seen on the standard Antaño Gran Reserva.

Antaño Gran Reserva GT20 is salted for an August release, being packaged in 20-count boxes and retailing for $9.50 MSRP per cigar.
