Southern Draw Kudzu Oscuro
Yeah, the guy who seems to be involved in half the big blends on the market today is the grower and manufacturing partner for Southern Draw, so the Kudzu has all the great parenting needed to help it grow up big and strong.
The Southern Draw Kudzu Oscuro is a Nicaraguan blend, as you might expect from A.J. The wrapper, though, is an oily Ecuadorian Habano Oscuro leaf. This rich tobacco gives us a blend of incredibly flavorful smoke. Some noted reviewers have even gone so far as to call it a “flavor bomb.” As overused as the term maybe, you don’t need a professional palate to taste all that the Southern Draw Kudzu Oscuro cigar has to offer. Pepper, toffee, nuts, wood, and lots more are all there for you if you sit back and enjoy this cigar slowly, one relaxing draw at a time.
That’s what this company is all about!
This cigar is box-pressed, so you get a nice dense puff aerated as you bring it in. The double-fermented cover leaf (seemingly a signature of the brand, as we’ve seen it in more than one offering from Southern Draw) really shines with mature and complex layers of flavor. Like the vine it’s named after, the Kudzu climbs all over your tongue, activating tons of taste buds.
For those who don’t know, Southern Draw is headquartered in Texas, and kudzu is known as the “vine that ate the south.” What once was introduced from Asia as a way to control erosion, shade porches, and produce other benefits rapidly became an invasive species that quickly coated acre after acre as it spread from one state to the next. As annoying as it may be when you don’t want it around, you have to respect a plant that is prolific and tenacious.
If only tobacco grew that way.
