Herrera Esteli Norteno

Herrera Esteli’s sophomore effort lives up to the hype!

Willy Herrera began his craft as a small manufacturer in Little Havana, Miami and his talents quickly landed him a job as Drew Estate’s master blender. Drafting off of the success of his first release under the Drew Estate umbrella, Herrera Esteli Norteno has finally arrived. This new release pays homage to Esteli, Nicaragua – the home of Drew Estate and Herrera Esteli. Norteno, meaning “northerners” in Spanish, was chosen as the name due to people from Esteli being referred to as ‘Nortenos.’

This full-bodied firecracker is no joke, boasting long-fillers from the fertile Nicaraguan growing regions of Jalapa and Esteli, both known for producing bold n’ hearty tobaccos. A Honduran binder cloaks these leaves with an oily San Andres Maduro wrapper draped over top. This long-anticipated release delivers bold notes of pepper and chocolate that endure to the finish and are backed by hints of cashew, cocoa, and espresso. Powerful, ultra-flavorful, and satisfying to the last puff, the second Herrera is easily as good as the first. And if you’ve smoked the original, you know that says a hell of a lot.

Customer Reviews of “Herrera Esteli Norteno”
I tried out the Lonsdale Norteno as I am a big fan of Drew Estate and a huge fan of the lonsdale/lancero size cigars. It was good, but I was expecting more. Draw was a bit tight; not much smoke. Flavor was fine; kind of grassy/bland. I expected it to open up a bit passing the middle to final third of the cigar, but not much changed. It was very consistent throughout. Flavor was fine, but overall I was not impressed. For the price I will stick with my Liga #9s.

This is a great smoke from beginning to end. To the nub with this one...on my favorite list.
