Herrera Esteli Edicion Limitada Lancero

Posted by Jack | in Drew Estate | on 08 May 2014 | at 5:02 PM | 3777 views

Ah, the Herrera Esteli.  What can I say that I haven't already said about this brand?  More Cuban than many Cuban cigars these days, the Herrera Esteli line is delicious and satisfying across the board.  How could they get much better?  How about a limited edition lancero?  Drew Estate blessed my front porch with a pair of lovelies and after savoring the first one it is now my pleasure to review the last one in my stash.  In true master blender fashion, Willy tweaked the standard blend to fit the slender proportions of the lancero vitola.  Is it better that the standard line?  Let's see.... Construction: The ELL is a very nice looking cigar.  A seamless and nearly veinless wrapper leaf, perfect triple cap.  Just... Continue reading »»

 


 

Undercrown Dogma

Posted by Jack | in Drew Estate | on 31 Mar 2014 | at 6:47 PM | 2435 views

I have come nearly full circle here.  The first really good new cigar I smoked was the Undercrown when they first came out.  I knew nothing about what I was smoking at the time - just that it was a damned fine cigar.  That one cigar started the cigar mania I am now subject to daily.  So here I am, a cigar blogger.  Perhaps the smallest blog around, but that just means I try harder, right?  Drew Estate hit me with an e-mail last week about a new release in honor of one of the biggest cigar online communities around, Cigar Dojo.  What a terrific nod from one of the industry's biggest and most loved cigar companies!  Well, 24 hours after the e-mail, I was...

Liga Privada Unico Serie Papas Fritas

Posted by Jack | in Drew Estate | on 06 Feb 2014 | at 2:02 PM | 1835 views

As I have stated before, Drew Estate fans are a dedicated bunch.    They have good reason to be.  The Liga Privada line is amazing, the MUWAT line is terrific, and the Nica Rustica is amazing. Anyhoo...the cigar on deck for review today is one I have been dying to try.  After letting a Christmas gift card fester in my pocket for a while, I decided to break it out and snag a tin of the Papas Fritas.  So, without further bluster, let's get cracking.... Construction: The Papas has a nice rustic look.  Red-brown mottled wrapper leaf, nifty rat  tail cap.  No complaints or grievances for me here.  Then again, this is Drew Estate's flagship line, so anything terrible in the construction zone would be...

MUWAT Kentucky Fire Cured Chunky

Posted by Jack | in Drew Estate | on 11 Jan 2014 | at 12:48 PM | 1753 views

Last summer, fire cured tobacco made a comeback to the cigar industry.  This did open a few eyes as lots of pipe smokers enjoy fire cured tobacco every day, so hearing that cigars were about to utilize this very vintage process seemed very exciting.  To date there are three cigars on the market containing fire cured leaf.  The first was Sam Leccia's Black line, a cigar that made number 12 on my top 25 list.  The other is the George Rico, STK Miami American Puro, that I have yet to try, and the subject of this review, the much anticipated MUWAT Kentucky Fire Cured.  For as long as I have smoked cigars, I have noticed that fans of Drew Estate are a fanatical bunch and...

Herrera Esteli Lonsdale

Posted by Jack | in Drew Estate | on 09 Jan 2014 | at 12:18 PM | 1141 views

After hitting number 10 on my top 25 list this past year, I realized that I had yet to review the Herrera Esteli line by Drew Estate.  I would be remiss in my duties as a cigar reviewer were I to let something like that slide, so without further ado....The Herrera Esteli cigar line is a very well received addition to the Drew Estate catalog.  Blended by Willy Herrera, who has also worked for La Palina, among others, the Esteli line shows off Herrera's Cuban heritage.  Now, I will pass over the cubanesque subject for the time being as I am working on a special post specifically covering that topic.  I will say that I have smoked several of these lonsdale vitolas and I like...
