Today I will be reviewing a pre-release sample of the Herrera Esteli TAA Exclusive. For those who aren’t familiar, the “TAA” refers to the Tobacconists’ Association of America, which is a group of over 80 cigar retailers who meet yearly for a trade show to discuss various issues facing the cigar industry.
I want to start by saying that I am a huge fan of Connecticut Broadleaf. It adds a nice level of sweetness to the more full-bodied blends that is common with several Nicaraguan cigars. I am also a fan of the cigars that Willie Herrera has blended for Drew Estate. In 2013, Herrera Esteli was the #8 cigar of the year according to Cigar Aficionado and was also mentioned in our own “Best Of 2013″ article here at Emerson’s Cigars.
I hope you enjoyed my review, you can expect to see the Herrera Esteli TAA Exclusive on our shelves here at Emerson’s Cigars in April.
