What's a Kudzu? I don't know, but it tastes good!
Southern Draw is the new kid on the block. They’ve been around for a short time, but they’ve made a big bang due to their focus on quality over quantity. You may not have heard of Robert Holt yet, but I bet you know his partner — AJ Fernandez. Crafted in AJ's factory in Esteli, these beauties are nothing short of fantastic.
Kudzu Oscuro sports a double fermented wrapper that's silky smooth, and contains a mixture of Cuban-seed and Nicaraguan long-fillers. In short, this cigar's got quite the kick. You’ll get notes of cocoa, cedar, and spice - great when paired with a fine scotch, smoky bourbon, or complex and bold IPA.
Note: Southern Draw Kudzu is now available in special, collector's edition jars of 10. Though one jar is black and the other is white, the cigars inside are identical. But here's the best news - for each collector's edition jar purchased, a donation will be made from CI and Southern Draw to Cigars for Warriors.
Good news! The Southern Draw Kudzu Oscuro has been honored with a 92-point rating, noting "An oily, box-pressed cigar with an even, open draw. Sweet and spicy notes of brown sugar, pepper and toffee are underscored by a foundation of nuts, wood and coffee bean."
