Cinco decadas – five centuries. Joya de Nicaragua celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2018 with a new line, Cinco Decadas. The El Doctor pyramid vitola honors Dr. Alejandro Martinez Cuenca, the gentleman who purchased Joya in the 1990s. I pulled in flavors of dry cocoa on the cold draw. Toasted nuts, interlaced with cocoa, debuted in the first third. Some oaky notes took charge in the second third, trailed by more cocoa. The cocoa deepened, turning to coffee with splashes of sweet caramel in the final third. Each puff satisfied every sense. Joya nailed this 50th anniversary celebration cigar.
