Blind Cigar Review: Herrera Esteli | Toro Especial Tubo

“This cigar offered up a nice balanced mix of cedar and coffee throughout. Some cocoa, orange zest and leather kept me engaged while the bookend pepper was a nice addition. Maybe not a special occasion smoke, it’s certainly one to keep on hand.” -Gregg (McGreggor57)

Blind Cigar Review: Drew Estate | Nica Rustica Belly

“This larger vitola benefited from a nice change up of flavors. Although there were no stars, the subtle nuances held my interest for ninety minutes. My biggest issue was an inconsistent and loose draw that made it difficult to pull out a wider range of tastes. I would try this one again based on the flavors.” –Gregg (McGreggor57)

Blind Cigar Review: Herrera Esteli | Norteño Edición Limitada

“I enjoyed the change in personality of this cigar. The beginning was a nice start with a sweet smell and flavor only to give way to a bolder, bit stronger flavoring. A peppery flavor emerged in the middle but dissipated towards the end. Overall, a pleasant experience, none like I have ever experienced.” -Eric (smalls29)

Blind Cigar Review: Drew Estate | Undercrown Shade Gran Toro

“While this cigar spent a good deal of the first third trying to trying to find itself, there was plenty of time left to enjoy it. The richness of the char, coffee and nuttiness was well balanced with some sweetness from the cedar and allspice. The leather in the middle did a nice job of tying all the flavors together.” -Gregg (McGreggor57)
