During the 2012 IPCPR Trade Show, in Orlando, I was walking through the Drew Estate booth when suddenly a meat hook grabbed hold of my shoulder. I turned to see Willy Herrera towing over me with a smile on his face. It has been so long since I’ve last spoken with Willy that I completely forgot that we was now with Drew Estate (I was thinking of looking for him at El Titan de Bronze).
I say this about a lot of people in the industry, but talking with Willy is always a pleasure. We spent a couple of minutes catching up, then began discussing his new line of cigars, through Drew Estate, called Herrera Esteli. Willy was kind of busy during that first meetup, so Brian and I came back the following day to do a quick interview.
In the interview, Willy tells us everything that was involved with the new Herrera Esteli and that cigars will begin shipping in the winter months. In addition, Willy will also be attending events across the Unites States to promote his new line. Thanks to Brian Hewitt, we also got an exclusive piece of information in that Willy will not be growing out dreadlocks as a part of the Drew Estate team.
