Southern Draw Cedrus "The Hogan" CigarsCedrus gets its name from Cedrus libani or Lebanese cedar as it is commonly known. In ancient woodworking, the trees were highly sought after as they offered firm, high quality wood that delivered a pleasant scent, making them coveted for temples, palaces and sailing vessels. It lives on today as a wood used to create cigar boxes, as well as in Southern Draw’s branding and logos. The cigar uses an Indonesian Sumatra wrapper varietal known as Besuki TBN, while the binder is a habano 2000 leaf from Estelí, Nicaragua. The filler contains four varietals: Dominican piloto cubano viso, Nicaraguan criollo 98 viso from Estelí, Nicaraguan habano 92 from Quilali, Nicaraguan corojo 99 ligero from Jalapa. It’s being made at Tabacalera AJ Fernandez Cigars de Nicaragua S.A. in Estelí and is a blend that Robert Holt, founder of Southern Draw, called the company’s “most distinguished tasting cigar,” making mention of the Indonesian tobacco’s distinctive spice profile as well as an herb-like profile that comes from the Quilali tobacco, which is grown in a mountainous region of the country approximately 70 miles northeast of Estelí.
Continuing with the celebration of both flora and people as the inspiration of its lines, Southern Draw focused on another varietal of cedar tree, the Western Red Cedar, which is grown in the Pacific northwest region of the United States and Canada and is know both for growing up to 200 feet tall and being capable of living for over 1,000 years. There is also a specific variety of Western Red Cedar known by name Hogan, which is grows in a stand of trees along Hogan Road in Gresham, Ore. That varietal shares a name with the people who the cigar is a tribute too, Phil and Shelly Hogan, both early supporters of the company.
