Willy Herrera had quite the reputation even before be came to Drew Estate. Being the master blender for the top manufacturer in the US is no small feat, and everyone knows the tremendous cigars that were coming out of El Titan de Bronze. When he signed on with Drew Estate, fans rejoiced. Take the natural talent of such a prolific blender and giving him the almost endless resources of one of the largest companies in the industry, we knew magic was on the horizon. His first project, the Herrera Esteli, was a tremendous success and was on Top 10 lists everywhere. The sequel project is always the most difficult, however Willy and his team at Drew cam threw with flying colors.

The Norteño takes its name from the Spanish word for Northerner. This is typically what people in Nicaragua call the citizens of Estelí, as it is in the north of the Country. It is an exquisite full bodied smoke that combines the extensive tobacco resources of Drew Estate with the clever blending practices of Willy Herrera. It uses aged Nicaraguan tobaccos for its long filler and a stunning San Andres maduro wrapper, giving it a combination of rich sweet notes and spice.

The Norteño has received critical acclaim, and was named the #7 cigar of the year in 2016 with a 94 rating. It is an amazing example of a Nicaraguan cigar and laid the groundwork for all future Will Herrera blends. Pick up your box of the Norteño today at Serious Cigars.
