The Desert Rose is an addition to the Rose of Sharon premium cigar line.
“Desert Rose, has a heartier wrapper and is a more robust version of our original blend, a symbol of the family as we stand our ground and confront the changing seasons and mounting challenges that we continue to encounter as we execute our mission of unity, charity and the service via this little brand,” per Sharon Holt – aka the boss lady.
The Desert Rose is covered in an Ecuadorian cloud-grown Claro wrapper, and integrity from a thick and flavorful Condega, Nicaraguan Habano binder and a new filler combination marrying both Corojo 99 and Piloto Cubano ligeros from Honduras and the Dominican Republic.
Desert Rose has been produced in Esteli, Nicaragua at the A.J. Fernandez Cigar Co. and will be made available in a single size, Belicoso Fino 5.5 x 52 (box pressed). Total release for 2019 is 75,000 cigars (full production of 150,000 cigars is scheduled for 2020, 2021 etc.) and is scheduled to be released in equal amounts in July, September and November 2019. MSRP: $11.99 per cigar or $119.99.
