The release of the Herrera Esteli, a delicious premium cigar with ratings in the 90s, took the world by storm; it was the cigar that put Willy Herrera on the minds of every aficionado. But it was his next release, the Norteño, that sealed his fate as a brilliant blender and a force in the industry. The Norteño was one of the most anticipated releases of 2014, and it did not disappoint. It is a full-bodied smoke packed with flavor and features a limited San Andrés wrapper, an aged Honduran binder, and vintage Nicaraguan long-filler tobaccos. It is smooth, rich, and robust with hints of cocoa, coffee, and a tangy aftertaste. It earned a 94 score from Cigar Aficionado, the highest rating ever given by CA to a Drew Estate cigar. Definitely a cigar that any shop would be honored to carry, Herrera Esteli Norteño is available today at Santa Clara Cigars.
