What does Joya say about the cigar?

Cinco Décadas is about celebrating being first, being best or just being. It is a testament of the ultra-premium quality that characterizes the JDN family, made exclusively with prime extra-vintage leaves. It carries an immaculate balance accompanied by sweet and spicy notes. Its silky smooth smoke delivers a rich and fulfilling experience.

What do I say about the cigar?

Initial Light: (1:40)Leather, Earth, Fruit on and unsweet cocoa on the dry draw, and a bit of sweet cocoa and cedar on the initial light. The retro-hale smoke is cool because of the size of the cigar. This cigar starts off as a medium strength.

First Third: (14:30) Tasting lots of cocoa, gram cracker, cedar. The burn is great, no issues what so ever, and the ash is nice and thick, not flaking at all.

Second Third: (32:00) Lots of pepper, cedar,  and toast, with cocoa on the retro. Very medium-full in the second third.

Final Third: (44:03) Burn and ash have been consistent throughout the smoke. We didn’t have to touch up the cigars at all. No tunneling, mouseholes, canoeing, or taring. The cap stayed intact the entire smoke. The pepper has passed, and return with a creamy cocoa and coffee flavor.

Final Thoughts:  This is a great cigar. Not an everyday cigar, a cigar you want to celebrate something like the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon Landing. Both Kenne and I highly recommend you try this cigar if you haven’t had one already.
