Drew Estate’s 2022 Herrera Estelí Habano Lancero and Herrera Estelí Connecticut Broadleaf Lancero are returning to participating Drew Diplomat program cigar sellers.
Only four bunchero-rollera teams at La Gran Fabrica Drew Estate are qualified to craft the 7 x 38 Lancero size, which is notoriously difficult to make because its narrow ring gauge can restrict the cigar’s draw. Experienced cigar lovers around the world appreciate a Lancero’s tendency to emphasize the strength and flavor characteristics of the wrapper, due to the smaller ratio between wrapper to filler leaves in a Lancero’s blend.
The Lanceros feature an Ecuadorian Habano wrapper, Honduran Habano binder and Nicaraguan filler tobaccos.
Exclusively available to qualifying Drew Diplomat Program participants, the Herrera Estelí Lanceros are packaged in 15-count boxes with a retail price of $194.24. They will begin shipping in July.
“The Lancero is generally my favorite size, but that’s especially true for the Herrera Estelí Habano and Herrera Estelí Connecticut Broadleaf cigars,” Drew Estate Master Blender Willy Herrera said in a press release. “Both blends are made from wrapper leaves that are rich and bold. The Lancero size allows the smoking characteristics of those beautiful leaves—especially their nuances—to truly grab your attention.”
