Cigar News: A New Rose of Sharon – is DESERT bound

Southern Draw Cigars’ blend with the iconic “pink band” will offer a perfect oasis in the scorching desert for the attendees of the IPCPR 2019.  The DESERT ROSE is a hearty sun-loving cigar that thrives in these hot temperatures, a perfect addition to the Rose of Sharon premium cigar line.   

The Boss Lady herself, Sharon Holt notes:

“Desert Rose, has a heartier wrapper and is a more robust version of our original blend, a symbol of the family as we stand our ground and confront the changing seasons and mounting challenges that we continue to encounter as we execute our mission of unity, charity and the service via this little brand.”

The Desert Rose is covered in a velvety smooth Ecuadorian cloud-grown Claro wrapper, and integrity from a thick and flavorful Condega, Nicaraguan Habano binder and a new filler combination marrying both Corojo 99 and Piloto Cubano ligeros from Honduras and the Dominican Republic. 

The Desert Rose is an almost flawless medium bodied, medium flavored cigar that is as beautiful as the original blend while offering a buttery smooth yet spicy “burst of flavor” with each draw before yielding to a very clean palate.  We leave the rest of the images and unique flavor transitions to those that choose to make a purchase.

Limited samples of the new release will be available to select media members and valued retail partners of Southern Draw Cigars.  Southern Draw Cigars will join Cigar Coop for Prime Time Special Edition #57 episode July 23, 9:15 EDT to smoke together and highlight this new release, offering a chance to win fabulous SWAG and cigars to the podcast audience.
