Quick Smoke: Drew Estate Herrera Estelí Short Corona

26 Aug 2017

Each Saturday and Sunday we’ll post a Quick Smoke: not quite a full review, just our brief verdict on a single cigar of “buy,” “hold,” or “sell.”

Drew Estate cigar production expertise meets a Cubanesque approach to blending. That’s what you get when you fire up Herrera Estelí, a line blended by Willy Herrera that sports Ecuadorian, Honduran, and Nicaraguan tobaccos. The Short Corona (4.9 x 46, about $8) is my favorite vitola. It packs a profile of syrup, creamy nut, dry wood, and white pepper into a short, compact, concentrated format. And, as I’ve come to expect from Drew Estate, the combustion properties are sublime.

Verdict = Buy.

    The picture has the old band (imported from Nicaragua). Is this a cigar that has been resting or an old picture?

      It is not an old picture, but the cigar is a recent purchase from a tobacconist. So I suspect it had been resting at the tobacconist for some time before I bought it.
