JD speaks about Willy coming on board at Drew Estate:
“Unlike most companies, we have decided to take the slow and low approach to his joining our team. Basically, we stuck him in Nica for over a year at a bench and gave him the key to our tobacco and said: “Create a great cigar…” We gave him no boundaries or limits. Willy then spent forever working on this first blend… drove me a little crazy, made a lot of bad blends along the way, but I think we overwhelmed him a bit – I don’t think he was prepared to have so many tobaccos to blend from, rather daunting… our man Nicholas helped nudge him a little here and there and voila! Willy created something I consider great.
Along the journey, Willy has become an exceptional handmade cigar bunchero and rolero. Check him out when he is in a store near you! Ask him tons of questions while you’re at it!”Wrapper: Ecuadorian Habano
