    I have a few of the Joya de Nicaragua Antano 1970 Gran Perfecto’s resting in the box and need to have one after a full meal to enjoy it the way “I believe” it was meant to be enjoyed. Look forward to giving the Antano & Celebracion a whirl also. Sounds like a winner of a smoke and for the price you can’t beat that also.

    I am with you on the choice of the Celebration over the Antano. The Celebration is a very rich flavorful cigar especially robusto size. The Antano seems to be a harsher smoke and without much depth.

    Definitely prefer the Celebracion line, hands down. The Antano is great and fairly unique, but the Celebracion simply explodes with uber-complex floral and wood. These must be aged a minimum of 6 months, however. I think they roll them and ship ’em out without pre-aging

    I recently tried the Celebracion robusto and was very impressed. This surprised me because I absolutely hated the Joya de Nicaragua Classico blend. Regarding strength, I have a friend who is an occasional cigar smoker. I gifted him a JdN Celebracion. He seemed surprised when I told him this cigar is considered by some to be full bodied and strong. I definitely detected a dried berry flavor. Not really sweet, but similar in taste to a raspberry that has not been sweetened. I now suspect that the cigars I received had some age on them. As the review notes, the Celebracion has been around for a while now and lives in the shadow of the Antano.

    I smoked another one of these last night. Solid flavors. The burn, however, was a little finicky and tunneled toward the end. I too prefer the Celebracion to the Antano. The former has more flavor to help balance out the strength. Must be the criollo wrapper.
