Today brings us the Joya De Nicaragua Dark Corojo Antano Poderoso in a 6x54 vitola. The Dark Corojo Antano hails from Nicaragua and features all Nicaraguan tobacco. It features a foot band that says Double Fuerte which means Double Strong and boy is it. This cigar is packed pull of full bodied power and taste. It has flavor notes of leather, chocolate, coffee with hints of spice. I chose this to be today's cigar because it was on this day in 1999 that NASA launched the Mars Polar Lander. The Polar Lander was sent to study the soil and climate of Planum Australe, a region near the south pole on Mars. Unfortunately it lost communication on Dec 3rd 1999 after a high impact landing. Just as we launched the Mars Polar Lander into the deep dark space that's what you'll be doing with the Dark Corojo Antano.
