Great cigar with an even better purpose!
From Southern Draw comes La Manzanita, a recent release from a brand deeply imbued in charity work, as owner Robert Holt and his team take pride in giving back. A portion of the sales of these cigars are donated to the First Nations Development Institute, a nonprofit that assists Native American tribes and their communities through training, policy, and the awarding of grants.
La Manzanita, which translates to "little apple," utilizes a hybrid Habano wrapper, a Habano binder, and a long-filler blend including Pelo de Oro, Corojo 99, and Ligero tobaccos, but their countries of origin remain undisclosed. (According to both Holt and AJ Fernandez, this blend got its name during the wrapper sorting process, as the hybrid leaf exhibited a deep redness like the bark of the manzanita tree.) Handcrafted at Tabacalera AJ Fernandez in Estelí, each premium provides a smooth and aromatic smoking experience, filled with notes of spice, dark chocolate, cedar, caramel, earth, hay.
