Willy Herrera was previously a Master Blender for the infamous El Titan de Bronze factory in Little Havana, Miami. Now at Drew Estate, Willy Herrera has created the limited blend Herrera Estelí. This rare beauty will be the smoothest and creamiest smoking experience you’ve ever had. Due to the limited distribution, run, don’t walk to your local cigar shop! And remember the Saturday after Thanksgiving is Small Business Saturday.
The combination of Ecuadorian, Honduran, and Nicaraguan tobaccos creates an aromatic, flavorful medium to full-bodied cigar with crisp notes of cedar, spice and roasted nuts and hints of white pepper and vanilla.
When you’re trying to kill some Sunday rainy blues, nothing beats some Stogies and libations on the Rocks, right? On one of those days, I was fortunate enough to snag a Herrera Esteli Especial at my local B & M. Never overpowering, the lightness of Herrera Estelí Toro Especial pairs well with many different spirits. A bold merlot, single barrel bourbon and scotch or beer would make an excellent pairing. My recent pairing of Herrera Estelí and Laphroaig 10 Year Scotch was a tremendous success. The Islay Single Malt Laphroaig 10 Year is a full-bodied, smoky jewel, with a subtle sweetness and a hint of salt. As the Herrera Estelí continues to build up to a full bodied cigar, the Scotch plays catching up. The flavors are harmonious and flow right in to one another. At the end is a warming finish. It’s no surprise so many cigars smokers prefer Scotch as an accompaniment to their smoking experience.
