Herrera Esteli Norteno, Toro Especial, 6 x 50, 25 per box
Full-bodied and chock-full of hearty flavors, this impressive handmade includes a Honduran binder overtop a bevy of long-fillers harvested from the fertile soils of Jalapa and Esteli. It's all cloaked in a gorgeously appointed San Andres maduro wrapper leaf. Notes of nuts, chocolate, and coffee are accentuated by intense punches of pepper and spice. Full-flavored and full powered, this sequel is destined to achieve just as many accolades as its predecessor.
