Drew Estate today announced that the 2016 limited launch of the Herrera Esteli Connecticut Broadleaf Lancero Tienda Exclusiva is being revived for a national release, being offered exclusively to Drew Diplomat-authorized retailers across the country.

Wrapped in Drew Estate’s famed stockpile of high-priming Connecticut Broadleaf, the Lancero Tienda Exclusiva was first introduced as part of the fan-favorite H-Town series by Houston-based retailer, Stogies World Class Cigars. This series featured unique blends/sizes from many of the industry’s most sought-after names—with all being offered in lancero formats. For Willy Herrera, Master Blender at Drew Estate, this amounted to a 7″ x 38 cigar using Nicaraguan fillers, a Brazilian Mata Fina binder, and a Connecticut Broadleaf maduro wrapper.

There is always a challenge to blending lanceros. Sure, you have amazing broadleaf that’s going to really provide that burst of rich flavor, but the trick is how you bunch the filler leaves in a way that provides the complexity, so the cigar doesn’t become one dimensional. I knew when I first sampled this blend it was going to be loved, and now is the time to unleash it through our Drew Diplomat Retailers.Drew Estate Master Blender, Willy Herrera

Our Pre-Industry Team at La Gran Fabrica work Connecticut Broadleaf very hard in the pilones, using air flow, bulk pressure, water, and heat over years to reach the maximum flavor and color. Willy and the Production Team then follow up this process in blending this beautiful material into majestic blends for Liga Privada No. 9, Nica Rustica, as well as this very Herrera Lancero that we’re bragging about today. The Herrera Lancero hits a whole new broadleaf profile, super delicious. As An Phan, our Senior Brand Manager says, “APPROVED.Drew President and Founder, Jonathan Drew
