First released in 2018 in commemoration of Joya de Nicaragua’s milestone 50th anniversary, the company has since introduced new limited sizes of their premier Cinco Décadas brand on an annual basis. In 2021, Joya will re-release the first three sizes in the lineup: Diadema, El General and El Fundador.

The first two cigars were released in 2018 as the Diadema (6″ x 54 figurado) El General (7″ x 50, Churchill). These sizes paid tribute to the first shape rolled out of the Joya factory and a pioneer in Nicaraguan tobacco, respectively. Likewise, 2019’s El Fundador (6″ x 54, Toro) addition honored a founding member of the company. Notably, the 2020 El Doctor format (honoring Dr. Alejandro Martínez Cuenca, chairman and owner of the company) has not been included for 2021.

As we have always said, this is the best cigar that comes out of Joya de Nicaragua’s factory in Estelí. That is why we pay so much attention in guaranteeing that every annual batch has the same quality level as the first one we sold in 2018. This year, global demand of cigars is surging, however, we remain true to ourselves, and we are selling the number of cigars that can be rolled with the Cinco Decadas standards.Juan Ignacio Martinez, executive president of Joya de Nicaragua

The Cinco Décadas 2021 launch is scheduled for the beginning of July, with 600 boxes of each size being made available exclusively to Drew Diplomat-authorized retailers across the country.
