Drew Estate Herrera Esteli

Big Willy Style....

Welcome Herrera Esteli cigars, the newest addition to join the ranks of Drew Estate's massive portfolio. As with the Liga, and My Uzi lines, Herrera Esteli further solidifies Drew Estate's presence in non-infused, traditional cigars. This time, the story starts with Willy Herrera. He was a tobacco guru at the famed El Titan de Bronze factory in Miami, responsible for some of the most sought after and highly rated handmades around. And once he combined forces with Drew Estate, he took like a duck to water. But even a duck has to learn to fly, because Herrera Esteli didn't come without some trial and error. What you see here is the result of sampling and tweaking dozens upon dozens of blends. 

From the vintage Cuban-esque bands to the cabinet style box, Herrera Esteli screams Cuba. And the glue sealing the whole thing together is the blend. Oh-so-creamy, yet highly representative of Cuban cigars of old. It's got some oomph, but the flavors are delivered in such a velvety fashion the power is beautifully masked. Crisp, clean notes of spices, cedar, cream, and roasted nuts are the backbone, as occasional hints of white pepper and semi-sweet vanilla weave masterfully throughout. Initial puffs foreshadow a medium-bodied profile, but the slow burn begins to unveil a different story, as it inches toward a medium to full-bodied crescendo. If the Liga series is a cup of black coffee, Herrera Esteli is without a doubt the with cream option. A handmade of the highest caliber, Herrera Esteli is going to turn some heads.

Herrera Esteli received a well-deserved, 93-point rating, noting: "This beautifully made belicoso layers the palate with rich toast and coffee flavors that lead to spicy notes. Touches of cinnamon and spice linger on the finish."

Customer Reviews of “Drew Estate Herrera Esteli”
“Surprised I'm the first to write a review on this great cigar! To start, wow, what a great draw from head to foot, as well as a hint of cedar and spice from the start, followed by creaminess throughout. If you are a skeptic about Drew Estate look no further, you have found a great all around cigar that isn't infused like some of the other lines. A must try!”
DA of BEL AIR, MD
“Herrera Esteli Robusto. Price has been the issue keeping me from hitting this cigar. The cigar looks great, feels great. Great draw, ash, smoke output, and it's so nice to enjoy a cigar from first light. Smoooooooooooth! Creamy, rich mouth feel with a little refreshing palate zing. flavors: the smoke hits me like a cool drink of water, as it exits my mouth it leaves behind a gift of mild white pepper spice and a complex mélange of everything that's good in a cigar. I don't retrohail often, but I did try it with this cigar. It left me with a teary eyed kiss on the nose, and thank you mam may I have another feeling. About 1" in and I finally got an identifiable taste of honey, yes honey (not Honey Booboo). 1/3 in and well so much for perfection, first issue is a wrapper split and the need to relight. 1/2 way point and back on track with the draw, flavors are now a quality tobacco earth and leather. Very nice, but not sold on the price point at this time. overall, a fine cigar. The price is still the sticking point for me, at $5 it's boxworthy and then some. However, at $7-8 I'd stay on the sidelines. For a B&M $9+ is a good price to enjoy a fine smoke in a cigar lounge.”

“As an unabashed lover of all Drew Estate infusion cigars I wanted to "branch out" and try a non flavored stick. Many other cigars always left me wanting to return Drew Estate. Maybe I am not really a true cigar smoker. But I never cared what the purists thought about my love for flavored cigars, anyway. When I found that the Herrera Esteli came from my favorite maker I gave them a shot. I smoked this cigar down to the very end from the first light up. This is a fantastic cigar with all kinds of flavors that I am not qualified to elaborate on (given my history with flavors). Mild and pleasant and packed with a delicious taste is all I can come up with on the Herrera Esteli.. The burn is perfection to the point where you will think that you have to tap it before you know that eventually it will be on either you or on the floor. I love this smoke! And I never thought I'd love a non flavored cigar as much as this one. Once fired up you'll just have to finish it to the nub: no matter where you're at. Try this one! You'll be surprised.”
