Southern Draw’s 300 Hands release will get a new addition in the form of a Connecticut-wrapped cigar.
The company has announced that it will release a 300 Hands Connecticut, a five-vitola line capped off by a shade grown wrapper from Connecticut. Underneath that is a Peruvian binder and fillers from the Dominican Republic and Nicaragua.

The line debuted last year in both 300 Hands and 300 Maños varietals. Its name is derived from the number of hands that are said to be used to make the different components of a single cigar.
A portion of the proceeds—25 percent of profits—is donated to charitable causes in Nicaragua. in addition, the bundles of the cigar display the faces and names of some of the workers.
Like the rest of the Southern Draw portfolio, the cigars are made at Tabacalera AJ in Estelí, Nicaragua.
300 Hands Connecticut will debut at the 2019 IPCPR Convention & Trade Show, which begins June 29 in Las Vegas, and ship to retailers in August.
