Drew Estate 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 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."

​NOTE: Drew Estate Herrera Esteli Norteno has undergone a packaging update. They are now available in 25-count boxes and new sizes that reflect the same sizes as the rest of the Herrera Esteli line. The blend has not changed.

Best cigar ever!!
This is the best cigar I have ever smoked. Razor sharp burn, perfect draw, and a flavor profile that suits my palate perfectly. I'd go far enough to rank it better than any other high end stick I've had. That includes the L.P. T52, No.9, Dirty Rat, L40, Padron 64 anny, and much more. Try it out. You won't be disappointed!

Great cigar
Incredible stick! Excellent flavor and draw. Get the robusto. I wouldn't recommend the corona like I got. gets too hot, and this stick you want to last longer anyway!

The Drew Estate Norteno Fino was everything I expected. Excellent, full bodied and the finish was delicious. I did not want to put the cigar out, perfect smoke! Drw Estate hit in on the nose again, I am also a big fan of the Herrera Esteli.
Drew Estate MUWAT Kentucky Fire Cured Delfinas (Lancero/Panatela) (6.5"x26) Box of 18 Deal

Muwat Kentucky Fire Cured Delfinas by Drew Estate for just $5!!

For a limited time, add a box of Muwat Kentucky Fire Cured Delfinas (Worth $53) to qualifying Drew Estate box purchases for just $5 more!

Generally speaking, the offerings in the Drew Estate portfolio are pretty unique. That has a lot to do with why the brand is so damn popular to begin with. But now this latest line extension to MUWAT has taken things to a whole new level, taste-wise. This phrase gets thrown around a lot, but this time it couldn’t be more accurate – you’ve never tasted anything like this before.

The biggest difference with Kentucky Fire-Cured is the inclusion of – you guessed it! – American fire-cured tobacco leaves from Kentucky and Virginia. While normally tobacco is air-cured, these special leaves are left to hang in specially-constructed curing barns, a process that dates back more than 200 years and that imbues each leaf with a rich, smoky, slightly sweet flavor that boasts exceptional balance and uniqueness. Notes of oak, hickory, and maple-laced sweetness explode on the palate. These leaves are joined by Nicaraguan and Brazilian Mata Fina long-fillers along with an oily San Andres maduro wrapper. This finished product is like nothing else on the market. Been looking for a totally uncommon taste experience that’ll blow your hair back? You just found it.

Want something really special? The Kentucky Fire Cured Swamp Rat and Swamp Thang from Drew Estate offer a half-Candela experience for another fantastic addition to the DE profile. Learn more here.
