Blended by Willy Herrera and paying homage to Esteli, Nicaragua home of Drew Estates. They bring to you Herrea Esteli Norteno a full body and complex cigar with a lot of rich and dark flavors which leave a delicate spice on the palate. Norteno meaning “Notherners” in Spanish refers to the people of Esteli as they are often called. Complex flavors come together from tobaccos grown in the fertile regions of Esteli and Jalapa where the tobacco is known for its flavor, strength and richness.
Cigar Aficionado said, "Norteños come off the tables of La Gran Fabrica Drew Estate and from the mind of Willy Herrera, Drew Estate’s master blender. He took a Mexican San Andrés wrapper, a Honduran binder and integrated the two with a filler blend of well-aged Nicaraguan tobaccos. Great construction, however, is not the only hallmark of this cigar. It’s also rich with notes of raw cocoa bean, refined milk chocolate and nougat, yet maintains its earthy qualities without becoming too sweet."
Herrea Esteli Norteno received an outstanding 93-rating from Cigar Aficionado magazine in the June 2016 issue and was ranked the #7 top cigar of 2016!
