The official debut will take place at this year’s International Premium Cigar & Pipe Retailers Association (IPCPR) trade show, from June 28 – July 2 at the Sands Expo and Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nev.
Southern Draw Cigars’ boldest blend will rain down its vivid interpretation of wrath with the Jacobs Ladder – hail, fire and brimstone – the names applied to each of its triple ligero filler tobaccos.
