Drew Estate and Joya de Nicaragua Land On Cigar Aficionado Magazine’s Top 25 Cigars of 2019!
Today, Cigar Aficionado published the complete list of their top 25 cigars of 2019 and both Drew Estate and Joya de Nicaragua have made the list!
Coming in at #25 with a solid 92 rating, the Herrera Esteli Miami Toro. Cigar Aficionado Magazine’s review panel notes, “ This is a tasty toro with a core of semisweet chocolate, cedar and almonds with pleasant pops of citrus that lead to the espresso bean finish.”
Crafted by Level 9 Cuban Rollers at the famed El Titan de Bronze factory in Little Havana, Miami, the complete Herrera Esteli Miami line is expertly rolled with a lavish Ecuadorian Habano Oscuro wrapper over a rich Ecuadorian Sumatran binder with select fillers from the Dominican Republic and Nicaragua.
Weighing in at #21, our partners at Joya de Nicaragua earned a slot with the JOYA Silver Corona also rating a 92! Cigar Aficionado writes, “It starts with an earthy core that takes on layers of dried fruit, roasted nuts and coffee bean. Overall, the cigar is medium-to-full bodied without ever losing its sense of balance or harmony and is a pleasure to smoke from first puff to last. Fans of coronas will appreciate how so much flavor can come from such a diminutive size.”
Thank you to Cigar Aficionado Magazine for this tremendous honor, and congratulations to all the manufacturers that made this prestigious list!
