Southern Draw has a new idea on how to settle a problem, a duel. Or at least a collection of cigars named after a duel.
It’s called Code Duello, four different cigar designed to be sold in pairs.
All four cigars are perfectos, but there are two different sizes: 6 x 56 and 5 x 58. There are also two different blends: Firethorn and Kudzu.
Firethorn uses an Ecuadorian habano rosado wrapper, Mexican San Andrés binder and Nicaraguan fillers. While Kudzu has an Ecuadorian habano oscuro, Nicaraguan binder and Nicaraguan fillers.
The cigars are designed to be sold in pairs, priced at $21.99 per pair.
As for the duel part, Southern Draw has laid out the following rules, in regards to how it intends for the cigars to be smoked:
RULES – Settle it Like Gentlemen!
1. Challenger shares his/her conflict or grievance directly and privately with the challenged;
2. Challenged chooses the cigars for the duel, each pair have been tuned for identical appearance, reliability and accuracy;
3. Challenger choses the “field of honor” or location of the duel;
4. Challenged accepts the location or requests and alternative location;
5. The parties cut and light both cigars (a single wooden match is recommended) and allow one another to talk openly, uninterrupted and in a respectable tone;
6. The parties agree on a resolution and terms and the matter is considered settled OR the parties agree to work towards an amenable final resolution and proceed in earnest towards a specific goal.
Southern Draw has released the cigar in bundles of with 3,000 more cigars being released in November with boxes. Production is limited to 4,000 total cigars.
It is produced at Tabacalera AJ Fernandez Cigars de Nicaragua S.A. in Estelí, Nicaragua.
