Southern Draw La Manzanita
We are one of the 10 retailers to get this special release.
Southern Draw is celebrating the origins of tobacco as well as the anniversary of the company’s co-founders this weekend with the launch of its newest line, Manzanita.Details about the tobaccos in the blend are somewhat limited, as the countries of origin aren’t being disclosed, while the varietals are. The wrapper is a habano hybrid leaf, the binder is a habano leaf, and the filler contains pelo de oro, corojo 99, and ligero, according to a press release. It is made at Tabacalera AJ Fernandez Cigars de Nicaragua S.A.
The cigar got its name, which means little apple, while Abdel Fernandez, Robert Holt and Sharon Holt, along with members of their respective teams, were inspecting bales of the habano hybrid leaves that would be used for the wrapper and noticed how they had an oily, deep red color, reminiscent of the red bark of a manzanita tree.
