The Herrera Esteli Norteño premium cigar is cloaked in a toothy, rustic-looking San Andrés wrapper from Mexico. Although a bit dry-looking, this leaf pumps out some seriously juicy flavor! Under the sheets, a binder from Honduras and aged filler tobaccos from Nicaragua combine to deliver a robust full-bodied character. The cigar starts peppery with hints of wood that soon blossom into complex notes of sweet spice, cedar, and slight floral hints that are present in the background. When I’m looking for a top-quality premium handmade maduro, Herrera Esteli Norteño is a cigar that I turn to time and time again.
