The Southern Draw Cigars family has been working late into the evening for years with the AJ Fernandez Cigar Co. to add a new maduro core blend to the family of brands.
The latest core blend is being called EVENING PRIMROSE — the primrose is one of the first flowers to bloom in spring and its name comes from the Latin word ‘primus’, which most know means ‘first’. Although it’s an early season bloomer, it has a distinct habit of only revealing its flowers in the evening, and then remains open until early the following day. Their inspiration was derived from the Oenothera pallida or pale evening primrose with its satiny white flowers that leave visiting insects with a dust of lemon-yellow pollen on their bodies. The Boss Lady cultivates her garden as a haven to bees, moths, and butterflies to collect pollen and now, she can observe them working every evening, with our perfectly ripe, new blend in hand.
There is only one way to enjoy this blend prior to their general release date, and that is via Cigars International where the company have included two (one time only) test sizes, 6.5×46 Lonsdale and 6.75×52 Perfecto in a box pressed format which have been included in the 12,000, Create-Your-Own CIGARfest – 64 Cigar – Deluxe Cigar Package, being sold at each of their retail superstores between September 24th and October 29th, 2022, including seven events highlighting the SDC brand.
The EVENING PRIMROSE has been expertly box pressed and will be packaged in their faceted 10 count boxes, identical to that of the MORNING GLORY, the Satin White color scheme of the boxes and multi-color cigar bands were carefully chosen by Sharon Holt, to reflect the refinement of the pale evening primrose blossoms as they reach for the light of the moon.
