Joya de Nicaragua Antaño 'Shut The Box' Robusto Grande - Box of 20

Back in 2012, Dr. Alejandro Martínez Cuenca, Chairman of Joya de Nicaragua, won his first game of Shut the Box.
He was on tour, visiting old friends in the cigar industry, and in one stop at Havana Mix Shop in Memphis, TN, he was challenged to a game. As a numbers guy, backed by a PhD in Economics, he accepted the dare. You could argue that an exact science has nothing to do with rolling the dice, or you could simply try to shut the box!

Shut the Box is a traditional American game that Dr. Alejandro Martínez Cuenca has become obsessed with and dares anybody to challenge him! “ I never thought that day I would discover one of my now favourite pastimes, and moreover, that 8 years after, my team would come up with the idea of making a cigar box that transforms into it."

Antaño is one of Joya de Nicaragua’s oldest, and most successful blends - launched in 2001, it is considered by many as the first real full bodied cigar in the market.
An innovative approach by the most traditional factory in Nicaragua, it is now considered a true classic.

Antaño Shut the Box Limited Edition is a special gift from Fábrica de Tabacos Joya de Nicaragua to those loyal consumers that have been supporting the brand for almost 20 years.
“For many years we have been thinking about ideas on how to make our empty boxes be useful after all cigars are smoked, and this is how we decided to let people have some fun. At the moment, we didn't know we were going to be bringing to smokers a special game so useful these days that we have to stay longer at home” said Juan Ignacio Martínez, Executive President.
