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."

Good Cigar
This was a good cigar indeed but honestly not as good as i was expecting. I did note feel the notes of chocolate, espresso anf was not that oily howeverif felt the notes of pepper that made it somehow a bit like a strong taste. Anyway, this was the first stick that i smoked and to be fair, i will give it a second chance to make a final statement of this cigar.

Yup and Yup spark up
Bought 2 boxes of 10, really great cigars. Burn a little quicker than expected, wish it lasted longer because it has very lovely pepper flavor.

Outstanding Cigar
Really liked it. The best I ever had? No, but it was substantial. I don't know if it tastes like coffee, chocolate, leather, or my Aunt Peg's socks, but it was good. Full bodied, not overpowering. Sort of disappointing to get to the end of it. I did purchase more for loading up the humidor.
