Drew Estate has begun shipping the new Herrera Esteli Norteño Edicion Limitada Churchill to its Drew Diplomat retailers.
“The Norteño Edicion Limitada continues to be one of my favorite projects at Drew Estate,” says Willy Herrera, Drew Estate’s master blender. “This cigar showcases the complexity in the blending process, requiring tweaks of the classic Norteño blend to really shine in the Churchill vitola.”
Herrera Esteli Norteño was first released in 2015. This particular cigar features aged tobaccos from Nicaragua’s Estelí and Jalapa growing regions. The cigar features a spicy Honduran binder and a rich, bold Mexican San Andrés maduro wrapper. Herrera Esteli Norteño Edicion Limitada Churchill was first rolled in 2016 and underwent two years of aging using the original molds from the first production. Herrera Esteli Norteño Edicion Limitada Churchill is a 7 x 48 box-pressed cigar and a modified blend of the original Norteño. The company notes that this cigar is a smooth yet complex smoke. The cigar comes packaged in 15 count boxes.
