Drew Estate has announced the national launch of the Herrera Esteli Connecticut Broadleaf Lancero Tienda Exclusive to its Drew Diplomat retailers. This is a cigar that was originally a shop exclusive to Stogies World Class Cigars in Houston Texas as a part of its H-Town Lancero series.
The 7 x 38 Lancero features a Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper, Brazilian Mata Fina binder, and Nicaraguan fillers. It will be available in 15-count boxes with an MSRP of $186.96.
In a press release, Drew Estate Master Blender Willy Herrera commented, “There is always a challenge to blending lanceros. Sure, you have amazing broadleaf that’s going to really provide that burst of rich flavor, but the trick is how you bunch the filler leaves in a way that provides the complexity, so the cigar doesn’t become one dimensional. I knew when I first sampled this blend it was going to be loved, and now is the time to unleash it through our Drew Diplomat Retailers.”
Jonathan Drew, President and Founder of Drew Estate, added, “Our Pre-Industry Team at La Gran Fabrica work Connecticut Broadleaf very hard in the pilones, using air flow, bulk pressure, water, and heat over years to reach the maximum flavor and color. Willy and the Production Team then follow up this process in blending this beautiful material into majestic blends for Liga Privada No. 9, Nica Rustica, as well as this very Herrera Lancero that we’re bragging about today. The Herrera Lancero hits a whole new broadleaf profile, super delicious. As An Phan, our Senior Brand Manager says, ‘APPROVED.’”
The Herrera Esteli Connect will begin shipping in September.
In addition, Drew Estate will showcase the Herrera Esteli Connecticut Broadleaf Tienda Exclusive on a special edition of the company’s Freestyle Live streaming show on June 11th, 2020 at 7pm Eastern.
