He was brought on board by Drew Estate in 2011. Willy's significance to the Drew Estate team cannot be overstated, utilizing his ability to infuse authentic Cuban flair into their process. So eager to put his talent to use with Drew Estate’s enormous portfolio of tobaccos and skilled rollers, that during his initial visit to La Gran Fabrica (Drew Estate's cigar factory in Nicaragua), Herrera crafted three blends; one of these creations became the blend we all know and love as Herrera Esteli Habano cigars, which was released to high praise and acclaim in 2013.
Currently there are four variations of Herrera Esteli cigars; all of these premium cigar brands represent Willy’s hard work and dedication to the craft, as he meticulously designs, tests, and fine-tunes each smoke. His calling card is his ability to capture the rich, robust flavor from each of Nicaragua’s dynamic tobacco growing regions.
