Willy Herrera has gone back to his roots for his featured 2016 IPCPR release. Today Drew Estate announced it will launch the new Herrera Esteli Miami. It’s a cigar not being made at La Gran Fabrica or the Joya de Nicaragua factory (where Drew Estate has the majority of its product), Instead, the Herrera Esteli Miami is going to be made at El Titan de Bronze – the factory located on Calle Ocho in Little Havana. It’s the factory that Herrera ran since the 1990s before he joined Drew Estate in 2011.
The blend for the Herrera Esteli Miami features an Ecuadorian Habano Oscuro wrapper, an Ecuadorian Sumatra binder and a combination of Nicaraguan and Dominican fillers. The cigar will be released in one size – a 5 3/8 x 48 vitola. It will be packaged in ten count boxes. Pricing will be $130.00 per box.
Since joining Drew Estate, Herrera has been the mastermind behind the Herrera Esteli, Norteno, Undercrown Shade, and several limited edition projects.
In a press release announcing the Herrera Esteli Miami, Herrera commented, “The journey at Drew Estate has taken me to new countries, and almost every state in the union. After 5 years, it was time to come home and work on a project where it all began for me. Going back to my roots and in my home where I was brought up has been such a blessing.”
