DE Herera Esteli Miami Corona

The Miami version of the Herera Esteli blend is rolled at the El Titan factory, "home" factory of Willy Herera. An oily Colorado colored wrapper with one noticeable vein, the cigar has a nice firm bunch. The wrapper and foot have aromas of leather, cocoa and cinnamon. The cold draw is perfect. Tonight's beverage is a Real Ale Three Lions IPA.



Initial notes are mostly leather. This is a medium to full flavor and body smoke. It has a clean burn and a light grey ash.



A sweetness appears during the first third to complement the leather notes. The burn is perfect and the ash is solid thus far, falling just as I finish the first third. The smoke is plentiful and smooth.



During the second third cinnamon notes join the leather along with luxurious tobacco flavors. There is also a very light background of a very fine tequila. The burn is mostly even. The retrohale is very smooth with no pepper notes. The construction of this cigar is excellent.



Approaching the final inch the cigar remains excellent with complex flavors of tobacco, leather and cinnamon. The burn continues to be even. If you are a fan of Liga Privadas and/or Undercrowns, this cigar is a must try. The overall experience is excellent. 9.5/10, Joe Bob says check it out.
