Hi Folks: today we will be reviewing the Southern Draw, Fire Thorn. This is a nice medium – full body toro 6×60.
I have pretty much enjoyed everything that Southern Draw makes, with the exception of the Rose of Sharon. I will usually pick one up when I am in a cigar shop, if they have them.
So Let’s get on with this cigar review!
What’s Under The Hood
Wrapper: Ecuadorian Habano Rosada
Binder: Mexican San Andres
Start: 4:30 PM End: 5:50 Burn Time: 1:20
Smell: Cedar, Spice and Carrot Cake
Cold Draw: Cedar, Spice and Carrot Cake
Construction: Nice light brown sandy finish, tight seams, small veins, closed foot and double cap
Draw: Slightly tight, no problem
Flavor Profile: On the initial light got a pepper shot from that closed Ecuadorian foot. The flavors started right away, with the cedar, spice and carrot cake, as advertised on the smell and cold draw. These flavors mixed well through the first two-thirds with none overpowering the others. In the final third the cedar ran the show.
About Southern Draw
Southern Draw Cigars was founded by U.S. Veterans and former Cuban master cigar rollers who collaborated to revive the Southern traditions. Rob Holt, founder of Southern Draw, created the company because he wanted to bring back the “Southern gentleman” style of honor and respect. All of the tobacco used in Southern Draw’s cigars are pure Cuban-seed which have been rolled by AJ Fernandez’s team in Esteli, Nicaragua. For their core blends, Rob Holt decided to go with a plant theme; thus creating: Firethorn, Kudzu, and Rose of Sharon. Each line has a deep meaning behind it and the same care and compassion is put into each and every cigar. If you’re a fan of the classic Cubanesque cigar (to be honest, who isn’t?) then Southern Draw cigars are a perfect match for you!
