The Smokin Tabacco Show: Willy Herrera of Drew Estate

August 20, 2022 By Matthew Tabacco

Brought to you by J.C. Newman – On this episode, Master Blender Willy Herrera of Drew Estate joins us to talk about his beginnings at El Titan de Bronze in Miami where he learned about tobacco and self-taught himself much of what he knows today, including how to roll cigars. Willy then talks to us about how he then made the move to Drew Estate and started blending some of the most well-known cigars today. We talk about the next Freestyle Live and make a prediction as to what it might be.

Nicole talks about her trip to the Connecticut Barn Smoker event last weekend where Willy was in attendance as well. They both share some information about the event that newcomers to this event might find interesting and should help convince them to attend!

In our Micallef Cigars news segment, we updated everyone on the amazing journey thus far of the La Flor Dominicana NFT’s currently on sale through an auction. The first four have netted almost an amazing $350,000!
