Herrera Esteli Norteno is the highest-rated Drew Estate cigar by Cigar Aficionado magazine and it was named the No. 7 best cigar of 2016 in the magazine’s yearly Top 25 cigar rankings.
Herrera Esteli Norteno cigars are box-pressed and made using a San Andres (Mexico) maduro wrapper, a spicy Honduran Criollo binder and extensively aged Nicaraguan filler tobaccos from Jalapa and Esteli to produce a slightly fuller-bodied smoke than the Herrera Esteli Habano. Despite its fuller-bodied character, Willy blended Herrera Esteli Norteno to be smooth and balanced with a rich spicy taste and earthy undertones.
**This brand has recently gone through artwork revision/modernization. We are still working our way through some stock with the previous design, so you may receive either. The cigars are the same, just the artwork on boxes and bands have changed.
