Herrera Estelí Ranks #7 on Cigar Snob Top 25

Today Drew Estate was honored by Cigar Snob Magazine as they awarded the Herrera Esteli Lonsdale #7 Cigar of the Year in their top 25 list.

This 93 rated cigar, is the brainchild of Willy Herrera, Master Blender at Drew Estate. He brings an authentic Cuban influence to Drew Estate and the cigar is the definition of Cubanesque. Herrera Esteli is a medium plus blend that is exceptionally creamy with great balance of spice and sweet.

Coming in at #22 the Undercrown Sun Grown also made the top 25 with a 92 rating!

The Undercrown Sun Grown features an Ecuadorian Sumatra seed, Sun Grown wrapper. The binder is a Connecticut River Valley Stalk Cut/Cured Sun Grown Habano, complimenting a powerhouse blend of Nicaraguan premium fillers. One leaf of extensively aged Ligero from the Nueva Segovia region along the border of Honduras has been selected to enhance the strength of the blend.

We are honored to make the list, thank you Cigar Snob Magazine!

    I just finished a Liga Privada No 9 that set me back $14.75. About 15 minutes into the smoke I hit a hard spot that was in excess of 2 1/2 inches long. the result was caneiing of the cigar for more than 3 inches. I find that totally unacceptable in a cigar of that price that is supposed leader in the cigar industry. I am very disappointed and extremely unhappy with the event. I would think that some form of restitution is appropriate
