Standard & Twain Cigars: #67 , #2 Content The Herrera Esteli is being positioned as Cubanesque and that is exactly how this cigar smokes. The difference is while this might smoke like a Cuban, it has all of the quality that Central and South American tobacco brings to the table. This cigar reminded me that I can really get a great cigar experience from a classic flavor profile. The interesting thing is that this cigar could be a game-changer for the cigar industry as we could see the beginnings of a throwback movement to more classic flavor profiles. This is a cigar I’d not only recommend to the novice or experienced cigar enthusiast, but to the cigar smoker who only smokes Cuban tobacco. As for myself, this cigar is certainly worthy of a box purchase.
