300 Hands Connecticut Piramides
Piramides: 6 1/8 x 52
The 300 Hands name pays homage to the people of Nicaragua involved in the 300 steps needed going from seed to store to deliver a hand-made premium cigar to the consumer. The people involved don’t just include those who work on the farms or in the factory, but also include the forgotten people such as repairmen and bus drivers. Because many people in Nicaragua live in poverty, Southern Draw Cigars set out to create a charitable angle where the company is donating 25% of the profits of 300 Hands to (according to Southern Draw) “those Nicaraguans that offered us their honest stories and identified specific needs in and around their own communities.”
Southern Draw has other Connecticut Shade offerings including Rose of Sharon, Desert Rose, QuickDraw Connecticut, and Ignite Connecticut No. 1. The difference is the 300 Hands Connecticut is the first Southern Draw cigar to use a U.S. Connecticut wrapper. The blend itself is a multi-national one including a Peruvian binder and fillers from Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic. As with all Southern Draw Cigars, the 300 Hands Connecticut is produced at AJ Fernandez’s factory in Estelí, Nicaragua.
