Miami, FL – Drew Estate Tobacco Co. announced today the release of the first
“Tienda Exclusiva by Willy Herrera”, a concept cigar by Willy Herrera. Made at La
Gran Fabrica Drew Estate in extremely small batches, the Tienda Exclusiva line is
specially crafted for one retailer per release, with only a few releases scheduled per
year. The inaugural “Tienda Exclusiva by Willy Herrera” blend was produced for the
owner of Barrister Cigars in Union, New Jersey, David Mallow, following the 2013
New Jersey Cigar Festival.
When asked about the blend, Willy Herrera responded from Estelí, Nicaragua: “This
was one of the blends that I was working on through 2012 and 2013. David smoked
it at the Festival and kept coming back for more. Eventually, he smoked every cigar I
had brought, which I thought would be enough for the entire week! I knew he loved
the blend and it felt right assigning it to him for my first Tienda Exclusiva.”
David Mallow, owner of Barrister Cigars, said that, "the ‘Tienda Exclusiva by Willy
Herrera’ is a truly beautiful project that I am honored to be involved with. It’s no
secret that Willy is one of the most talented tobacco blenders out there, and we can’t
wait to have the cigar in our humidor.”
As stated previously, every “Tienda Exclusiva by Willy Herrera” blend is a limited
quantity production cigar made at La Gran Fabrica Drew Estate. Jonathan Drew
noted, “I recommend you don’t sleep on this one. These are one and done. Willy has
a lot on his plate right now as Master Blender of La Gran Fabrica Drew Estate. As I’ve
said before, ‘Boutique is in the Heart’ and Willy has spent so much time creating and
experimenting with blends. We have some real gems out of the blends he has
worked on. Now, it’s time to get them into production.”

The Kentucky Fire Cured Barn Smoker is going to be a
special, intimate moment to reveal how fire curing (smoking tobacco) is
really made. This is a real Southern affair, located in deep Kentucky,
only 60 miles outside of Nashville, and featuring some of the finest
cigars and spirits around. Many of our customers have asked us about the
fire curing process over the past year. We are having this event to
showcase the process at the source, in Hopkinsville, Kentucky.
The event is sponsored by Drew Estate, and will feature KFC Cigars
plus top shelf bourbon from our good friends at Angel’s Envy. In fact,
Kyle Henderson from Angel’s Envy will be in attendance along with
Jonathan Drew. In addition, the event is for a good cause, with 100% of
the proceeds going to Cigars For Warriors, a program that we at Drew
Estate are passionate about.
Miami, Florida, August 6, 2014 – Santa Cruz Tobacco, LLC., distributor to Gran Habano Cigars, reaches out to
cigar industry and customers to help with trade mark issue.
Gran Habano was notified by the U.S. Trade Mark office stating that “Gran Habano” is misleading the public.
The Trade Mark office claims that with the brand name “Gran Habano” is misleading the public to think we are
selling cigars from Cuba. We all in the cigar industry know that this is not true and Cuban cigars being sold in
this country is ILLEGAL. All retail locations know that Gran Habano products are not manufactured in Cuba
and are grown in Honduras and Nicaragua as all labels on Gran Habano cigars state. The public buys our cigars
for the quality of the cigar and Gran Habano’s customers do not smoke them “BECAUSE THEY THINK
THEY ARE FROM CUBA”.
We are asking everyone who would like to help us dispute this claim by filling out
the blanks on the attached MS Word forms and returning them to Gran Habano via email or email@example.com
and fax (305) 436-5740 before Friday 08/08/14. Please help us stop the Government from trying to remove a
name so well known in the cigar community. Together we can stop this from happening.
THANK YOU to everyone and your efforts in this matter will be greatly appreciated from us at Gran Habano.
