Joya Del Rey is a brand that was owned by one of my best friends in the industry. I’ve known this man, Bill Bock, for almost 30 years. He was one of the “unknown” giants in our industry who flew under the radar. Bill retired last year and sold his company. The Joya Del Rey is one of his best brands.
This Honduran Puro, made by Nestor Placencia, features a blend of flavorful filler tobaccos surrounded by a light Connecticut Shade wrapper. The overall smoke is smooth, medium-bodied and creamy on the finish.
Before retiring, Bill gave me the balance of these cigars at a fabulous price that we’re passing along.
