Southern Draw Cigars is bringing the crowdsourcing method to premium cigars. They will be looking to their loyal consumers, valued retail partners and cigar media members to help in selecting their next new brand. The project will utilize a Quick Response (QR) portal that can be accessed from a mobile device that will allow participants to input information including reviews, ratings, and recommendations on an upcoming cigar project from Southern Draw set to be launched in 2023, with plans for a similar campaign that will bring a follow up launch in 2024.
For those of us who love premium cigars, the leaf known as 'Medio Tiempo' is almost mythical in status. This year, Southern Draw Cigars released a special iteration of the Kudzu called Lustrum. Not only does this cigar contain Medio Tiempo, but it is the wrapper leaf for this new blend. Garret and I each smoked a few, and here is our evaluation.
Southern Draw Cigars will add 300 HANDS CONNECTICUT to the 300 HANDS line that first launched just last year. The company will also update the rustic display in order to show all three blends and the story cards that are so important to the 300 HANDS project. The project was created to showcase and celebrate the approximately 300 small steps and those hands producing nearly identical hand-rolled cigars.
The latest announcement from Southern Draw Cigars is just as bold as the cigar itself. The Jacobs Ladder goes even further on the road to boldness, and calls down hail, fire and brimstone - as these are names applied to each of the triple ligero filler tobaccos in this intense new size of the Jacob's Ladder.
