Southern Draw Quickdraw Dark Habano
Southern Draw Quickdraw Dark Habano cigars are part of a three-version line. There’s also a light Connecticut and dark Maduro version of the core blend, so you can experience it however you like. The long-filler blend of high-quality Nicaraguan and Honduran tobaccos goes well with each of the different wrappers. This will come as no surprise once you hear that the blend master tapped for this project is none other than A.J. Fernandez, the palate behind hits like Diesel, Ramon Allones, New World, Enclave, and many, many more.
On top of the binder and filler, you get a russet-colored Ecuador Habano wrapper. This Cuban-seed leaf brings all the flavor intrigue you can handle in a smoke, helping to create a profile that can only really be described as “natural tobacco.” Sounds like a cop-out to some, but in reality, sometimes tobacco tastes most like… wait for it… tobacco! This is a leaf-lover’s blend. You also get some notes of chocolate and a bit of fruitiness but not like a luscious fruit basket. Instead, the fruit notes here are like those you get in a dry white wine. They’re there, but they are not sugar-packed, and that’s a good thing.
Also, how often have you read a cigar review and said, “These guys are full of it. No one can taste that. The smoke will taste like cigar smoke.” Well, today’s the day you see a cigar retailer describe a cigar’s smoke as “tobacco-y.” Mark it down in your journal! This is a special occasion.
So far only the Connecticut version of the Quickdraw has been reviewed by Cigar Aficionado, scoring an 87-point rating, but the Southern Draw Quickdraw Dark Habano cigar is not to be ignored. It’s got such a welcome, straightforward flavor profile that this blend should be stored away in your mind as a foundational smoke. Really nice – and smokable without clearing your calendar. We can get behind that with a lighter.
