Southern Draw Quickdraw Connecticut
Hell, even finding a good hour to kick back is hard on some crazy days!
The blend for the Southern Draw Quickdraw Connecticut cigar was created in collaboration with one of the most prolific blend masters of our time: AJ Fernandez. Mr. Abdel J. has lent his palate to a truly astounding number of blends at this point, many of which have reached the top of the charts. So it’s no surprise when we see another brand bringing him in for a project like this. Southern Draw owner Robert Holt turned to a master of flavor to make the shorter smoking time of the Southern Draw Quickdraw Connecticut cigar totally worth it.
They don’t call it small. They call it, “connoisseur-size.” We don’t know if that term will catch on, if only because connoisseurs love cigars of all sizes. Luckily the Quickdraw name says it all.
This Connecticut wrapper was grown in Ecuador, where the natural cloud cover mimics the effect of shade-growing tobacco stateside. In tobacco, just like in real estate, it’s all about location, location, location. Under that bright peanut-colored cover leaf you’ll find a delicious mix of Nicaraguan and Honduran long-fillers.
The total mix of the Southern Draw Quickdraw Connecticut cigar together is wonderful. Cigar Aficionado gave it an 87 describing it as “a woodsy, autumnal smoke of dried leaves, freshly split oak, earth, and a tannic finish.” This Quickdraw Connecticut apparently has fall written all over it, so whenever you’re in a mood for the cool season that lets us bust out the firepits and hoodies, you might want to trot out to your chair with one of these stogies in your pocket.
