||Drew Estate made their way into the premium (non-flavored) cigar industry by mostly making cigars authentically Nicaraguan. That is, bold, strong, spicy smokes that Esteli gained fame from in the last twenty years. But when they hired Willy Herrera from El Titan de Bronze nearly ten years ago to blend their cigars, they wanted something different. And from the packaging, the marketing, and especially the flavor itself, it's clear what they wanted was a vintage Cuban-esque cigar: rich, earthy, woody and balanced. In 2014 Cigar Aficionado placed it at #8 on their Top 25 Cigars of the Year list, and since then Herrera has created all kinds of unique versions of the same (Herrera Esteli Norteño, Miami, Brazilian Maduro, Habana Special Edition). And while all are worthy of a space in your humidor, for the palate that prefers a more subtle, flavorful smoke, look no further than the original.
