The Herrera Esteli Connecticut Broadleaf Tienda Exclusiva Lancero was introduced in the second half of 2020. While the Tienda Exclusiva is Spanish for Store Exclusive, this release is not limited to one store but sold nationwide. A spice bomb with a dark chocolate finish, all enclosed in a size that maximizes its flavor profile.
It releases a riot of black pepper, accompanied by almond, toasted notes, and wood. Then earth, mushrooms, and hot spices. The second half turns to dark chocolate and slightly balsamic herbs.
HOW ARE THE AWARDS MADE?
Among the cigars tested during the year in blind tastings and reviews, those that scored the best score get re-selected. These products were then tested once again in a new blind tasting, which means not knowing what they are during the tasting. The test results are then compared, and the TOP 5 are made.
Since 2015, CigarsLover Magazine has focused on terroirs in order to give the right space to all the producing countries. From 2018, the TOP 5 were paired with the TOP 50, which lists the 50 best cigars without distinction of origin. Together with the Best Brands, the Best Buy, and the best Boutique Brands, this list will be published in the Winter 2020 issue of CigarsLover Magazine.
