300 Hands is a tribute to all that contribute to the production of cigars that was introduced at the 2018 IPCPR.
“a celebration of the most distinctive tobaccos born of Nicaragua’s special combination of soil, temperature and sunlight, of differing yet refined processes and most notably, the tobacco stained hands that meticulously perform every step required to produce a Southern Draw cigar.” - Robert Holt
300 Hands are available in a Habano wrapper and a Maduro Wrapper, each line having five vitolas.
I feel fortunate to have the 300 Hands Ignite – it is a 10 cigar sampler of each 300 Hands vitola (five) in both of the wrappers. Hell of a deal at $74.95!!
It should be noted that 25% of the proceeds of the sale of 300 Hands will be donated back to the people of Nicaragua by Southern Draw. Pretty nice gesture by their part and really displays the love of Nicaragua and their people that the fine folks at Southern Draw have.
The Habano version of the 300 Hands is a cigar that is medium in both body and strength. Absolutely a perfect any time of the day cigar. Some of the flavors that I pick up on are pepper, fruity sweetness, milk chocolate, dark roast coffee and cream. This is a cigar well suited for the novice as well as the experienced smoker.
The Maduro version of the 300 Hands is the stronger of the two lines falling squarely in the medium to full range in both body and strength. Flavors that I picked up on were pepper, cream, chocolate, earthy wood and leather. Some of my favorite flavors in the gem!!
