This week, Drew Estate’s Herrera Estelí Caja China will be offered to consumers for the first time.

The cigar, which is a Flying Pig version of the Herrera Estelí line, is an event-only item that will be offered as a gift with purchase during events where Willy Herrera is in attendance. Each box contains two Herrera Estelí Caja Chinas.

Herrera Estelí was the first line blended by Herrera after he joined Drew Estate. It uses an Ecuadorian habano wrapper over a Honduran binder and fillers from Nicaragua. The Flying Pig size has been used across other Drew Estate lines—most notably Liga Privada—and is a 4 1/8 x 60 double perfecto with a coiled pigtail cap.

Drew Estate’s calendar lists an April 6 virtual event with Cousins of Woodmere, Ohio as the first event where the Caja China will be offered.

Update (March 31, 2021) — Robusto & Briar of Lakewood, Ohio says that it is hosting a virtual event on April 1, which will also feature the cigar.
