Joya de Nicaragua Cabinetta Serie Line

The Cabinetta Serie line from Joya de Nicaragua is not really what you would consider a new release. Depending on where you live, however, it could be called one. The Cabinetta Serie was officially released in early 2009 in very limited quantities. Only a select 75 tobacco shops had the pleasure of carrying the line initially. This limited release was a strategic move by both the Joya de Nicaragua brand as well as their distributor, Drew Estate. The limited release was chosen since the Cabinetta Serie differed greatly from previous lines released by the manufacturer. More specifically, the Antano line for which the brand is well-known is a cigar on the bolder end of the flavor spectrum. In contrast, the Cabinetta Serie is a much milder offering.

So, what exactly is the problem, you may be wondering? Well, since Joya de Nicaragua picked up several loyal customers with its full-bodied blends, they decided that somewhat of a “test-run” would be more appropriate with their newer, more medium-bodied blend. After all, they did not want to disappoint their full-bodied smokers by providing something too mild and out of the ordinary for the brand. On the flip side, medium-bodied fans that were aware of Joya de Nicaragua’s reputation of putting out full-bodied sticks might be scared away altogether, not even giving the Cabinetta Serie a fair chance. In the end, the test-run proved to be successful, as the demand for the Cabinetta Serie exceeded its supply, prompting Joya de Nicaragua’s latest decision to expand distribution beyond its 75 initially-selected locales.


Hobbyists can expect a mild-bodied smoke with hints of cream and coffee that can be enjoyed at any time of the day. Its mildness also makes it a decent choice for new smokers as it is not likely to overwhelm them. It has a Nicaraguan filler and binder. Its covering is the cigar’s highlight, as it is a combination of an Ecuadorian Shade wrapper and a dark Nicaraguan Criollo wrapper. The Cabinetta Serie comes in four different sizes: the 5x52 Robusto, the 5.25x46 Corona Gorda, the 6x50 Toro, and the 6x54 Belicoso. Look for them in boxes of 24, with a single averaging around $5 to $6 each. Keep in mind that the Cabinetta Serie’s availability is expanding, but at a slow rate, so when you see one be sure to pick it up before it’s too late.

That concludes my news on new offerings from cigar manufacturer’s for the beginning of 2010. Keep checking back for more, as I am sure I will have some more releases to report to you in the future.
