Default Southern Draw help

OK, Southern Draw is a line of smokes put out by AJ Fernandez. At this point, I have tried the Kudzu and Firethorn lines and have enjoyed them both - being box worthy in both cases. I especially enjoyed the Lancero in both lines.

My question is this. There are other lines with Lanceros - Cedrus & Jacobs Ladder & Rose of Sharon.
How do they square up with the other two I have tried?

Thanks for your assistance.

Peace of the Lord be with you.

Maybe I should also ask, "If you've had the lancero, compare it to the others in that particular line (if you have had any).

I am not normally a fan of Churchill sizes, enjoying robustos, lonsdales, coronas, petites, and then lanceros. Do not ask me why my tastes have gravitated that way, but they have.

Thanks for your help.

Peace of the Lord be with you.

I've only tried the box pressed Kudzu, Firethorn, Rose of Sharon, Jacob's Ladder. One other I can't remember. What I do remember is they were a bit underwhelming. I bet the lanceros would be better.

There’s a reviewer named Phil Kohn who has his own site. He has reviewed quite a few of their cigars. I’ll warn you, his reviews get pretty crude. But, as long as you don’t quote them in your sermon…

Hmmm, underwhelming? That is interesting. I found the ones I had to be wonderfully tasty and complex...not on the upper end of the strong scale in either taste or lady nic.

Thanks for your viewpoint!

Peace of the Lord be with you.

I've had a couple (Rose of Sharon, Firethorn) but in larger formats. I thought they were good, and I bet Clayton is correct about the lanceros.

I've heard good things about the entire line. Everyone's tastes vary so YMMV

This is so true!

I am thinking of picking up some cigar from some of the different lines. I have some Firethorn & Kudzu Lanceros. I was looking to get a couple 5ers of some of the other lines (or 20 count bundles or boxes), but my problem is that I am a tightwad - and I haven't found them at a price point at which I'd be willing to pull the trigger.

I guess I need to keep looking.

Peace of the Lord be with you.

Hey Rev! Hope all has been well with you! Just saw this post and wanted to give you a little feedback from my experience.

The Cedrus uses Sumatra Indonesian tobacco as I recall so those lean more to the dry spicy/peppery side. If you don't like Indonesian tobacco (I know some out there don't) then I would suggest avoiding the Cedrus.

Jacobs Ladder is a different story altogether. Earthy, zesty rich smoke, it's been a while since I've had one but I remember them being very good.

Jacobs Ladder Brimstone is very close to the original except way more savory. If you like the bbq/savory meat note that some people describe in cigars then I'd definitely suggest trying the Brimstone.

Hope that helps!!

I tried a fiver of the Rose of Sharon lanceros. I think they were lanceros. They were 6.5" X 40. Lancero or lonsdale?

They were good, but not great. Pretty typical for the blend and nothing that made me want to buy more.
