No hablo? Manos means hands
Southern Draw Cigars is a growing force in the Boutique cigar game. Most of their production comes from the AJ Fernandez factory, so you can count on some top-notch cigars. At the 2018 IPCPR show, they released a pair of cigars that pay tribute to the hardworking men and women of Nicaragua. Many people say that it takes 300 pairs of hands to create a cigar from seed to shelf, so this pair of blends – a maduro and a habano wrapped option – are fittingly called 300 Hands and 300 Manos.
300 Manos, pronounced trescientos manos, is the Habano wrapped version. It applies a stunning Ecuador Habano wrapper leaf atop a Cameroon binder. The core is the same flavorful blend of Dominican and Nicaraguan long-fillers as its maduro wrapped counterpart. Medium to full in body, it provides notes of earth, sweet hay, cocoa, and some red pepper. Only a limited run of these cigars were produced, but packaged in affordable bundles of ten, you don’t have to pay a premium to get your hands on these beauties.
