Southern Draw Cigars is set to introduce their latest addition to their QuickDraw lineup, with the new QuickDraw Connecticut being introduced at a series of cigar events across the country over the next three months.
QuickDraw Connecticut joins the preexisting Ecuadorian Dark Habano and Pennsylvania Broadleaf blends, rounding out the portfolio to include a wide range of profiles for cigar enthusiasts. The QuickDraw brand utilizes small sizes, blended to pair with craft beer, wines, and other beverages. For QuickDraw Connecticut, the brand sets its sights on Cuban-style coffee.
The QuickDraw Connecticut blend was heavily influenced by our appreciation for Café Cubano, colada and cafecito, a blend offering the strength of dark roast espresso, the sweetness of hydrolyzed sugar and the light creaminess of the espumita or crema that sits atop the coffees.
Along with the small sizes offered, the cigars are rolled with pigtail caps that are intended to be twisted (or bitten) off, making for an easier experience “on the go”.
Both new offerings join a QuickDraw line that was blended specifically for consumers that desire an affordable hand-crafted cigar that takes approximately 30 minutes to enjoy and costs between $5.00 – $6.00.
As demand for a stronger Connecticut cigar continues, Southern Draw offers their take on the style, showcasing a fuller flavor profile and added body, compared against a typical, mild Connecticut blend.
