Drew Estate is not a company that is known to have done a lot of tubo offerings, but at this year’s IPCPR, Drew Estate will release a tubo frontmark in its Herrera Esteli line.  The new Tubo format introduce a 6 x 52 size into the line – becoming the sixth regular offering in the Herrera Esteli line, and seventh frontmark released (there was the limited edition Lancero) overall.

The Herrera Esteli Tubo will be offered in ten count boxes.  Pricing will be $11.50 per cigar.  Plans are for the new Tubo to be shipped to Drew Diplomat retailers this October.

The Herrera Esteli line was introduced in 2013 and was Master Blender Willy Herrera’s first project he worked on at Drew Estate.  The line finished as the #15 Cigar Coop Cigar of the Year in 2013.
