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!
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.
Smoked The Beliciso, It's Not As Strong As Advertised A Good Cigar Not Great. Would Buy A 5-Pack For Every Now And Then, But Not A Box.:)
This is my new go to cigar! Drew Estate never disappoints and the Herrera Esteli is in a league of its own!
If you like a medium to medium full Nicaraguan this should be your go to smoke. Easy draw, even burn and great flavor. Gonna stock up on these so I'll have plenty....
I'll admit that I'm a relative newcomer to the cigar world. That being said, I had read some great reviews on this stick and finally got tired of reading and decided it was time to have a draw. The robusto I tasted had a taste of spice all the way through and an creaminess that went perfect with the glass of bourbon I was sipping. I think next time I'll be buying atleast a 5 pack.
I took a few of these (in robusto) on a camp trip recently and what a wonderful cigar. Builds in flavor through the cigar to a solid medium-full. Very thick and creamy smoke with a perfect burn and true white ash! This cigar is probably my new favorite natural wrapper cigar... Give it a whirl you wont be dissapointed.
This is an awesome stick. Very rich in pepper. Beautiful construction, perfect draw and lovely thick creamy smoke.
Only downside is the price. If this was a $6 it would be my staple.
The aroma is very enticing by itself. The flavor is excellent. It burns even and is well constructed. Herrera Esteli is a great cigar, one of Drew Estate's best.
I previously posted a favorable review after trying a couple toros. I've now tried every vitola available for this cigar and have found them all to be spectacular from construction to burn to draw to abundant smoke to flavor. The Limited Edition lancero is the best in the stable. If you can still find any, do yourself a favor and buy em up. Obviously, every palate is different, but for me this is the perfect Nicaraguan smoke. Paired with a sipping rum it cannot be beaten. Hail Willy Herrera.
FANTASTIC......this smoke is 100% worth the money. It is a full body, full flavour cigar that will not disappoint. I only smoke premium cigars and just tried this cigar for the first time a little while ago(mostly because I don't really like Drew Estate cigars), but this smoke is FANTASTIC and worth every penny. GO FOR IT.
*BUYER BEWARE* I have noticed several of these that I have ordered have burst/cracked wrappers, I have ordered them in the robusto & belicoso vitolas. They are stored in cello with several other cigars in a properly humidified humidor. These are the only ones that are suffering these defects. Important to note, not all of the Herrera Esteli's in my humi are suffering this fate...only about a 1/2 dozen out of 14 that I have. I dissected one of the damaged ones looking for beetles or larvae with none found. Just wanted to give folks a heads up as these are far from cheap cigars...tasty, but I will not be buying anymore of these.
Grew up on Drew Estates cigars and have always been a fan. Liga Privada T52 has always been my favorite until now. Smoked my first Herrera Estelli this morning and loved it! Great draw with consistent oak notes from start to finish, a real treat. Excellent smoke for anyone with discerning tastes. Priced right, too.
Great smoke, very tastey, Can't seem to go wrong with Drew Estate.. Thank You CI.. JB Sr
It's a Drew Estate cigar for sure! It's amazing.
