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 tried the original, you know that says a hell of a lot.

Drew Estate Herrera Esteli Norteno landed at #7 on the 2016 Top 25 Cigar list and received a well-deserved 94-rating, noting: "It’s also rich with notes of raw cocoa bean, refined milk chocolate and nougat, yet maintains its earthy qualities without becoming too sweet."

Great smoke
Happy to grab a 5 pack from Joe’s Daily at a reasonable price. These are usually out of my price range. Strong, rich, full bodied advertised. Burned beautifully with little, if any, touch ups. A very satisfying smoke for the experienced cigar smoker.

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