Add Drew Estate to the list of brands a part of Houston retailer Stogies World Class Cigars’ H-Town Lancero. Today, it was announced that the new Herrera Esteli Edicion Limitada H-Town Lancero would become the twelfth installment in the H-Town series – a series of lancero cigars available exclusively at Stogies World Class Cigars. The cigar is expected to be showcased at the retailer’s annual Big Damn Cigar Jamboree & Wingding 2016 being held October 15th in Houston.
The Herrera Esteli H-Town Lancero is based on the Drew Estate Herrera Esteli TAA Exclusive blend. It features a Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper, Brazilian Mata Fina binder, and Nicaraguan fillers. It is available in a classic 7 x 38 lancero size and is packaged in 10 count boxes. The blend was created by Drew Estate Master Blender Willy Herrera.
In a press release announcing the new Herrera Esteli H-Town, Herrera commented, “In 2014 I blended the Herrera Esteli Edicion Limitada in a Lancero based on the core blend of the Herrera Esteli brand. In my travels to the great state of Texas I’ve had the pleasure of meeting Jorge and the Stogies Team, and their Industry Leadership and commitment to the Lancero vitola is second to none. I’ve been experimenting with blends that incorporate this incredible wrapper since coming on board starting off with the Herrera Esteli TAA and now the H-Town Lancero.”
Jorge Ahued, co-owner of Stogies World Class Cigars and a noted lancero aficionado commented,“Having always been a fan of the Herrera Esteli brand and Willy as a Master Blender, I wanted to add a Herrera Lancero to our H-Town collection, but unfortunately for me there already was a Herrera Lancero in the line. That all changed at this year’s TAA meeting when Willy handed me his new TAA Blend, and it was love at first sight. Thankfully, he agreed to make that blend for us on an exclusive basis in my favorite vitola, and I am very excited to add this to our growing collection of exclusive cigars.”
In addition, Drew Estate has announced the Herrera Esteli Edicion Limitada H-Town Lancero will be featured on the Drew Diplomat mobile application.

I guess I will call them up in the middle of the noise tomorrow and see if any are left. Herrera Esteli is one of my faves and I have access to just about anything and everything I could want to smoke.
