Herrera Esteli Short Corona Gorda
Herrera Esteli cigars are blended by the esteemed Willy Herrera as a tribute to the old Cuban style cigar. The process starts off using the finest Nicaraguan tobaccos from Esteli with Honduran binders and Ecuadorian seed Habano wrappers. They are then wrapped entubado style, a rare and extremely difficult style of rolling used primarily in Cuba. The result is a cigar with a taste unlike anything Drew Estate has ever created. Truly magnificent in every way. Pick yours up now.
Disappointing. Very weak on the flavor and aroma category. So sad I had great expectations.
This cigar is an excellent example of what can be rolled when you have an expert working on them from start to finish. The Entubado style roll on these gives me the immediate impression that it was made by people well-trained in the Cuban style. The Nicaraguan tobaccos are perfectly blended. The spicy Ligero in it makes it a medium-full smoke. This is only 1 of 2 cigars that I stock in my humidor at home.
