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.
Don t let the simple label fool you, this is a great and complex cigar and has become my favorite in the humidor. It burns pure with a nice white full ash and a warm mouthful of smoke. It holds together extremely well. The flavor is everything I expect a great cigar to be. It s earthy and strong like a robust coffee with hints of caramel mellowing it out. It reminded me of an Ashton Symetry only fuller, thicker, and great to hold. One word of warning, it prefers a lower humidity. I smoked one at 72% and had to puff-puff-puff to keep it burning well. At 65-69% this babe is a champ. I want many moooore.
