Willy Herrera is a titan of the cigar industry, literally. One of the most renowned blenders in the world, Willy is the sole blender for Drew Estate cigars, one of the top 5 largest cigar manufacturers in the industry. He first established himself working in one of the last large cigar factories in Miami, the famed El Titan de Bronze. It was there that he worked side by side with his future mother-in-law to hone his skills and become a master with cigar tobacco.

 Willy left El Titan de Bronze to accept the post as the lead blender for Drew Estate, but on one condition. He had to make a certain amount of his blends at the factory in Miami. That is where the Herrera Esteli Miami was born. This cigar is a love letter to the factory that he called home and to a city which has been rich with cigar culture and history for more than a century. The Herrera Esteli Miami cigar is hand rolled at the El Titan de Bronze factory using a blend of Nicaraguan and Dominican long filler tobaccos. Following a sultry Ecuadorian Sumatra binder, it is then cloaked in an exquisite Habano Rosado leaf, also from Ecuador.

 The first puff delivers a tremendous amount of sweet and savory notes. Hints of cedar, coffee, leather and spice flow together effortlessly to create a complex and intriguing profile. The construction is tight, with almost no burn issues and tight, solid ash. This cigar is a testament not just to the factory, but to the skills of the man rolling it. Unlike the first two cigars in the Herrera Esteli line, the Herrera Esteli Miami cigar is very limited in production. Don’t worry, you can buy your box today here at Serious Cigars.
