Drew Estate has announced a Herrera Estelí exclusive cigar for Vintage Cigar Lounge in Rhode Island. The new Herrera Estelí Tienda Exclusiva will be available exclusively at Vintage Cigar Lounge’s two Rhode Island locations in Westerly and Charlestown, or their website. In addition, the cigar will have a formal launch during an exclusive virtual event hosted by Drew Estate Master Blender Willy Herrera.
The Herrera Estelí Tienda Exclusiva for Vintage Cigar Lounge itself features a Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper, Indonesian binder, and Nicaraguan fillers. The cigars will come in one size – a 6 x 52. The cigars are packaged in 18-count boxes with an MSRP of $192.75 per box or $10.71 per cigar
The Herrera Estelí Tienda Exclusiva for Vintage Cigar Lounge features a blend of rich and toothy dark, air-cured tobaccos that offer a medium to full-bodied smoking experience with peppery notes and hints of earthiness. The cigar, available only in a Toro (6 x 52) vitola, is wrapped in an oily, luscious and flavorful higher priming Connecticut Broadleaf capa with an Indonesian binder and a complex blend of Nicaraguan filler tobaccos.
“Vintage Cigar Lounge has been a huge supporter of Drew Estate and the Herrera Estelí brand, and I wanted to create a unique blend for them. The Indonesian binder allows the wrapper and filler tobaccos to shine. Rich but not overpowering, sweet and complex, the Herrera Estelí Tienda Exclusiva for Vintage Cigar Lounge is a real flavor bomb,” commented Willy Herrera in a press release.
Jonathan Drew, Drew Estate’s founder and president, adds, “Herrera Estelí Tienda Exclusivas are created on a small batch, specialty cigar platform, similar to the Subculture editions that Drew Estate is known for. This burner is straight fire, brilliantly crafted to melt all the snow in Rhode Island. Spring is here. Rejoice, ya’ll.”
Vintage Cigar Lounge’s owner, Greg Williams said, “It’s an incredible honor to work directly with Willy and the Drew Estate team to craft this special limited-edition Herrera Estelí cigar for Vintage Cigar Lounge. Since we first opened Vintage in 2016, Drew Estate has brought us under its wing and has always treated us like family. We’re proud to have our own exclusive Drew Estate cigar and we know that our customers are going to love it!”
