Showing all 3 results

Herrera Esteli Norteno is a cigar that truly captures the essence of master blender Willy Herrera’s vision and craftsmanship. The name Norteno translates to ‘northerner’ in Spanish, a term used in Nicaragua to refer to people from Estelí, the country’s tobacco-growing heartland. The Norteno is a fitting tribute to this rich heritage, created with meticulous attention to detail and an undeniable passion for quality.

The Norteno represents a distinct shift from the original Herrera Esteli line, presenting a more robust and intense blend. This box-pressed beauty is cloaked in a dark, oily San Andres Maduro wrapper from Mexico, a Honduran binder, and a unique blend of Nicaraguan tobaccos from Estelí and Jalapa for the fillers. This assembly results in a rich, full-bodied experience that offers intriguing complexity and balance.

This cigar greets with a bold display of peppery spice and earthy undertones. As you delve deeper into the smoke, layers of cocoa, espresso, and a hint of sweetness come into play, contributing to a tantalizing flavor profile. The finish is lasting and filled with nuances of leather and dark chocolate, a satisfying conclusion to an exceptional smoke.

Herrera Esteli Norteno has been widely recognized for its excellence. It secured the 7th position in Cigar Aficionado’s Top 25 Cigars of 2016 with a 94 rating, an honor that solidifies its place among premium cigars. Reviewers praise its full-bodied strength, complexity of flavors, and flawless construction. Enthusiasts often note the captivating draw of the Norteno, its bold yet balanced profile offering a smoking experience that is both invigorating and satisfying. Its appeal lies not just in its quality, but in its character – a genuine embodiment of the northern spirit of Estelí, crafted to perfection.
