The 2019 version of the Herrera Esteli Norteño Edicion Limitada will soon be showing up on the shelves of Drew Diplomat retailers nationwide, as today Drew Estate announced that is has begun shipping the limited edition cigar.

It’s a 7 x 48 box pressed Churchill that uses a maduro wrapper from the San Andrés region of Mexico, a Honduran-grown binder and “extensively aged” fillers from the Estelí and Jalapa regions of Nicaragua, which the company says results in a smoother, complex smoke, according to a press release. It is made at La Gran Fabrica Drew Estate in Estelí, with 1,000 boxes produced.

This extension to the regular production Herrera Esteli Norteño line debuted in 2015. This year’s version comes in 15-count boxes priced at $217.96, or about $14.53 per cigar, before taxes.

I strive to capture the essence of a cigar and the people behind them in my work – every cigar you light up is the culmination of the work of countless people and often represents generations of struggle and stories. For me, it’s about so much more than the cigar – it’s about the story behind it, the experience of enjoying the work of artisans and the way that a good cigar can bring people together. In addition to my work with halfwheel, I’m the public address announcer for the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks during spring training, as well as for the Salt River Rafters of the Arizona Fall League, the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury and previously the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for Major League Baseball, plus I'm a voice over artist. Prior to joining halfwheel, I covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
