Drew Estate, one of the largest manufacturers of premium cigars in the world, is the latest company to partner with JR Cigar by producing a custom blend made specifically for this project. The Herrera Estelí by Drew Estate JR 50th was blended by Willy Herrera, Drew Estate’s master blender for the last several years.

“Fifty years is an unbelievable achievement and one we are proud to be a part of,” Herrera says. “We knew we had to do something unique and truly special to stand out and we definitely accomplished that.”

The Herrera Estelí by Drew Estate JR 50th is hand rolled at La Gran Fabrica Drew Estate in the heart of Estelí, Nicaragua. It uses aged Nicaraguan and Honduran tobaccos for the filler, along with a hearty Honduran binder and a zesty Ecuadorian Habano wrapper.

The blend makes this a unique offering from Drew Estate. Its use of Honduran tobaccos for the filler and the binder is something not typically seen in Drew Estate’s normal lineup. This combination of aged tobaccos gives the cigar a rich and earthy center along with hints of pepper, leather and a touch of dark fruit notes from the wrapper. It is medium-full body but smooth and complex throughout.

The cigar is rolled into a 48 X 7 Churchill and is packaged in custom boxes of 10. Only 500 boxes have been made.

Priced at $13.25 per cigar; $119.95 per box, this cigar will be available October 26th exclusively at the JR website.
