Herrera Estelí Miami Toro by Drew Estate Cigars

Lighting up the Herrera Estelí Miami, I was greeted with a burst black pepper flavors. Following were earthy tobacco flavors of cedar and peppery spice. The retrohale followed thru with more the peppery notes, creating a zesty and invigorating experience.

As we move into the second third, the cigar takes on a more refined and nuanced character. The Ecuadorian Sumatra binder comes into play, adding a subtle sweetness and a hint of cocoa to the mix. The flavors become more well-rounded, and a pleasant floral undertone emerges, complementing the existing profile. The retrohale during this stage becomes smoother, accentuating the sweetness and making it a truly enjoyable experience.

Final Third:

In the final third, the Herrera Estelí Miami reaches its peak in flavor and strength. The Nicaraguan and Dominican fillers shine, intensifying the richness and depth of the smoke. The creamy texture remains, but now there’s an added layer of dark chocolate and coffee, creating a decadent and satisfying finish. The retrohale in this stage amplifies the complexity, leaving you with a lasting and memorable aftertaste.

Overall, the Herrera Estelí Miami is a masterpiece by Drew Estate Cigars, showcasing the expertise and passion of its creators. The transitions from the peppery and leathery start to the sweet and floral middle, and finally to the robust and chocolatey finish, make this cigar a truly captivating experience. The blend of Ecuadorian Habano wrapper, Ecuadorian Sumatra binder, and Nicaraguan and Dominican fillers create a harmonious and unforgettable smoking journey. Whether you’re relaxing after a long day or celebrating a special occasion, the Herrera Estelí Miami is sure to delight your senses and leave you with a sense of satisfaction and joy.
