Herrera Esteli cigars are the brainchild of master blender Willy Herrera, who joined Drew Estate, one of the most respected names in the cigar industry, in 2011. These cigars draw inspiration from traditional Cuban cigars, both in their construction and blend. They mark Herrera’s premier line with Drew Estate and have earned the adoration of cigar enthusiasts around the world since their inception.
The history of Herrera Esteli cigars is intertwined with Willy Herrera’s personal journey in the world of tobacco. Raised in a family deeply rooted in the cigar business, Herrera developed a fine understanding and passion for cigar craftsmanship. His vision was to create a cigar that encapsulates the rich complexity of Nicaraguan tobacco with the refinement of a classic Cuban cigar. This dream was realized with the creation of Herrera Esteli cigars.
The taste of Herrera Esteli cigars reflects the intricate blend of top-quality tobaccos. They are made with a spicy Ecuadorian Habano wrapper, a Honduran binder, and filler tobaccos from Jalapa and Estelí, Nicaragua. The result is a medium to full-bodied smoke that offers balanced, nuanced flavors. The initial notes of white pepper and cream give way to a complex profile of cedar, nuts, and a subtle sweetness. The finish is long and satisfying, with hints of leather and spice.
The public opinion of Herrera Esteli cigars is overwhelmingly positive. They debuted in 2013 to rave reviews and have since been consistently rated among the best cigars of the year by various publications. The original Herrera Esteli blend even earned the number 8 spot in Cigar Aficionado’s Top 25 Cigars of 2013. They are praised for their impeccable construction, even burn, complex flavor profile, and most importantly, their ability to evoke the spirit of old-world Havana in every puff.
