This '94' rated release from Drew Estate was done in tandem with the famous Willy Herrera. If you're not familiar with Herrera, here's a quick history: he was the guy blending cigars for the famous El Titan de Bronze in Miami. And obviously he was doing an excellent job since he showed up on Drew Estate's radar. Now working at Drew Estate's factory in Estelí, Herrera was given unprecedented access to all of Drew Estate's tobaccos, and after numerous trial blends, Herrera Estelí Habano happened and boy are we happy it did!
Everything about Herrera Estelí Habano is exceptional. Rolled entubado style, this time-honored method originated in Cuba and is the most difficult method of making cigars. To pull off this feat, Drew Estate took a team of rollers from the Liga Privada production team and tasked them with this painstaking project. The results are worth it. The sleek Ecuador Habano wrapper clings tightly to the Nicaraguan and Honduran long-fillers, resulting in a delicious medium to full-bodied blend that's teeming with notes of cedar, oak, and the quintessential Cuban creaminess on the finish. Drew Estate and Willy Herrera may have outdone themselves on this one.
