For today’s International Lightation Ceremony I’ve chosen the Corona Nicaraguan Selection 20th Anniversary FSG, created by Jeff Borysiewicz from Corona Cigars to commemorate their 20th anniversary. This medium-to-full bodied cigar has a unique Cubanesque taste which is very smooth with interesting notes.
For nearly two decades, Corona Nicaraguan Selection cigars have been one of Corona Cigars all-time best sellers. This brand was our very first exclusive, factory direct cigar that we ever introduced. The reason for the continued success of this brand has been simple…offer a premium quality, consistent, great tasting cigar at a very fair price. To celebrate their 20th Anniversary, they wanted to do something special. They exported a few bales of our exclusive Florida Sun Grown Corojo tobacco to Casa Fernandez Cigars in Nicaragua. From there, Eduardo Fernandez and his team of Cuban cigar blenders went to work on combining just the right balance of Jalapa, Condega and Esteli Nicaraguan tobaccos with our 5th and 6th priming Florida Sun Grown ligero tobaccos. The result is a completely new, complex Cubanesque type of full flavor experience that combines the best characteristics of Cuban seed Nicaraguan and authentic Florida tobaccos.
