Joya De Nicaragua Celebracion Toro

This good looking puro seems to be a close cousin to one of my all time favorite cigars, the JdN Antano 1970.

Sure enough, it possesses the same nice construction and upon initial light, it reminded me in aroma and first draw of the JdNA.

But I will say that the flavors in the Celebration seemed to be more pronounced. I believe this is a criollo wrapper which, when done right, is one of my favorites. The wrapper gave it a great complexity of flavors that is sometimes missing from the Antano. Just when I thought I had the cigar pinned down to a certain flavor profile, I'd go another inch, and, boom, it's changed again. I nubbed this thing and am going back very soon to put a slow death to the other couple I have sitting in my humi.

While not the bring-you-to-your-knees power of the JdNA, the Celebracion still packs a lot of punch. It left me with a bit of a light-headedness afterwards and a great relaxed feeling. I would still classify these as full-bodied. Just not ultra-full-bodied like the Antano.
