As we noted back in December, Drew Estate will be adding a limited edition lancero to its Herrera Esteli line. The cigars appear to now be heading to retailers shortly.
According to Drew Estate, there will only be 2,000 boxes of 15 cigars allocated – for a total production of 30,000 cigars. The cigars will carry an SRP of $12.00 per cigar or $180.00 per box.
The Herrera Esteli Lancero – Edicion Limitada 2014 is the sixth frontmark to be released in the line. It is also the first limited edition frontmark in the line. It is the first cigar in the line to have a secondary band.
The Herrera Esteli line was launched in 2013 and was the long-awaited Drew Estate debut by blender Willy Herrera. The Herrera Esteli placed #15 on the Cigar Coop Cigar of the Year Countdown for 2013.
At a glance, here is a look at the Herrera Esteli line:
Wrapper: Ecuadorian Habano
