Joya de Nicaragua Antano 1970

In the early 1970’s Joya de Nicaragua was one of the most popular cigars in the American market. To commemorate this Joya de Nicaragua released the Antano 1970 in 2002. This stick is a Nicaraguan puro and utilizes Criollo tobacco.

The Antano is often referred to as a full-bodied cigar with a heavy nicotine kick. So I’ll fire this puppy up and let you know what I think.

nice review of what seems to be a lackluster cigar. Like you said, everybody has a different taste they like though, so someone might love these things!


Very solid cigar. I never remember buying them, but I always have some in the humidor. Very consistent, good flavor with a nice strength to them. I really like them in the short robusto format, which I believe is called the Consul.

The lancero version of the Antano is one of my top 3 lanceros and is definitely my fav of the line. Nice complete review Chris. Good job!


1970’s lancero’s are killer man. But the one you smoked is great, takes a long time to learn to smoke the little ones, but once you do, you’ll enjoy them even more. Did you feel it in the back of your throat, an if they are moist , let them rest allot longer. I enjoy a crisp smoke.
