Dopo il successo della linea Herrera Esteli, Willy Herrera, con-titolare del brand si è ingegnato per lanciare un nuovo sigaro denominato Herrera Esteli Norteño. Mentre la linea Herrera Esteli viene prodotta presso la Gran Fabrica Drew Estate, la Norteño sarà confezionata presso la manifattura di Joya de Nicaragua.

I am working with Joya de Nicaragua because we are at capacity at Drew Estate,” ha detto Herrera a Cigar Aficionado. “Norteño is a bit stronger than the Herrera Esteli core line and a completely different blend. As for art, the main band will say ‘Herrera Esteli’ with a secondary band that says ‘Norteño.‘”

It has truly been an inspirational experience to watch Willy Herrera transition from a Little Havana cigarmaker to a Nicaraguan cigar manufacturer,” ha affermato Jonathan Drew per Cigar Aficionado “I guess the name Norteño encapsulates his life journey. People really love him here in Nicaragua.

I chose the name Norteño for a couple of reasons,” ha affermato Herrera “First, in Nicaragua, people from Estelí are referred to as northerners or Norteños. Also, I am a northerner in the country.
