COVID-19 Cigar Walk, Day 31: 3.5-Mile Cigar



Drew Estate, Ecuadorian Habano, Herrera Esteli, Nicaragua, Willy HerreraMy first “real” cigar-smoking since my physical mishap… and it was officially my first Sunroof Cigar of 2019.

It was great enjoying this Willy Herrera creation of a cigar while cruising with the Sunroof Open in the morning.

This cigar speaks to me!

Drew Estate, Ecuadorian Habano, Herrera Esteli, Nicaragua, Willy HerreraUnless something changes, this will probably be my last entry for this Wonderful CIGAR. I think this is the first cigar since my return to the cigar hobby that made my eye go wide. This is the perfect “first” cigar of the day; perfectly balanced, full of flavor and not so strong that it will kick your butt.

Entubado goodness never fails. It’s no secret that I’ve come to love the full smoke delivery of this very balanced Drew Estate Hererra Esteli.

Mouthfuls of creamy smoke is how I will remember this cigar. In spite of what I’ve read, I have not picked up any but the very slightest of spice even on the retrohale (made if I rushed and powered through one) – Creamy Mellow

Addicted to Love
Stay Smokey

What can I say “Addicted to Love”.

Creamy Smooth all the way with this classic “Cubanesque” cigar.

As if I need another reason to LOVE this cigar by Drew Estate Cigars.

I just read that all of the Herrera Estelí cigars at Drew Estate are rolled in the Entubado style where the tobacco in the filler is rolled into tubes inside the binder, that allows better equal distribution of air when drawing on the cigar.

So impressed was I that I purchased a box of the Herrera Estelí Toro back in June. These have been resting since then and they’ve only gotten better.

An immaculate toothy wrapper with a perfect draw and burn, delivering tons of medium bodied smoke of creamy wood, followed by some sweetness and then a bit of pepper spice will accompany you for the rest of the first third, disappearing to resurface again at the end.

This is a Creamy Dreamy cigar that reminds me of the old-school sticks I used to smoke 20-years ago… should I say “Cubanesque”.

I love this!
