An instant classic was born with the new Herrera Esteli from Drew Estate, although making this stellar cigar was anything but quick.
Drew Estate plucked master tobacconist Willy Herrera from Miami and gave him all access to the Drew Estate tobaccos at the world-renowned factory and farm in Nicaragua. The year-long process of experimentation resulted in many failures, but finally the perfect blend of sweetness and spice with a creamy finish emerged.
Utilizing a select blend of tobaccos from the fertile Esteli region of Nicaragua, Honduran binders and Ecuadorian Habano wrapper, these cigars are then hand rolled in a traditional, and difficult, Cuban method called the Entubado style. Each tobacco filler leaf is individually rolled and the fillers are packed tightly together to create the bunch. Rarely used in large scale production, these cigars are a magnificent smoke that has earned it’s 90 rating from Cigar Aficionado. The Herrera Esteli from Drew Estate is available in Lonsdale Deluxe, Piramide Fino, Robusto Extra, Short Corona Gorda, Toro Especial sizes in boxes of 25 and the Parejo Tubo box of 10.
