Blind Cigar Review: Southern Draw | Quick Draw Pennsylvania Petite CoronaInitial Impressions

Appearance: 92

“This is a cute little with a small pigtail and a closed in foot. The wrapper is a dark brown, mocha, color with good lines and firm feel.” - (smalls29)

Aroma: 89

“There are earthy tones along with cedar present before the raw draw.” – (KBS1153)

Blind Cigar Review: Southern Draw | Quick Draw Pennsylvania Petite CoronaFirst Third

Flavor: 88
Strength: Medium
Body/Complexity: Medium

“From the git-go I am pleased with the bold coffee flavors. There is a slight peppery taste at the beginning but the coffee flavors are the predominate flavors. A very nice start. Unfortunately, after a few minutes the peppery taste disappeared. There is still a mild coffee flavor with chocolate undertones. Based on the color of the wrapper I expected a much more bolder flavor.” - (smalls29)

“The first third delivered a very rich deep taste much like ometempe grown tobacco. The ashes are light grey with black striations.” – (KBS1153)

Blind Cigar Review: Southern Draw | Quick Draw Pennsylvania Petite CoronaSecond Third

Flavor: 86
Strength: Medium-Strong
Body/Complexity: Medium-Full

“The cigar is smoking very fast and I think that it is causing a slight bitterness to develop. There are now cedar notes, a pepper finish, and just a slight vegitial finish.” - (Eulogy)

“I am detecting nodes of pepper, cedar and dark roasted coffee. The second third presents medium to strong flavors. This will be a full bodied cigar.” – (KBS1153)

Blind Cigar Review: Southern Draw | Quick Draw Pennsylvania Petite CoronaFinal Third

Flavor: 89
Strength: Medium-Strong
Body/Complexity: Medium-Full

“The cedar notes are now the dominate flavor of the cigar. There’s still a slight vegitial note on the finish, but has fallen significantly from the first third.” - (Eulogy)

“Soon as I stopped typing dark chocolate flavors popped up front and center. This cigar is burning fast. I’m 34 mins in and i’m in the final 3rd #sadpanda. After having to relight (my fault not the cigar) i’m getting a lot of leather, and it’s burning kind of hot. 50 mins in, and it cooled down now spice is way up front…..what a transition…..damn good smoke!” – (irratebass)

Overall Impressions

Draw: 94

“The draw on this cigar is very even and consistent.” – (KBS1153)

Burn: 95

“Burned very nice but I could not keep a good ash. The ash falls away quickly, even when holding the cigar still.” - (smalls29)

Construction: 91

“From the closed foot to the pigtail this was well constructed solid feeling throughout the event.” – (KBS1153)

Overall Strength: Medium-Strong
Overall Body/Complexity: Medium-Full
Overall Experience: 87

“The slight bitterness at the end really detracted from the cigar. Although, I wasn’t a huge fan of the vegitial flavor, it was interesting. I probably wouldn’t buy another, but would give it a shot if I was offered another.” - (Eulogy)

“It started out as just another cigar, which isn’t a bad thing…it was a good cigar to smoke while hanging out with your friends. It was a cigar that you didn’t really have to pay attention to. After the 2/3rd the flavors snuck up with wood, chocolate, leather & spice.” – (irratebass)

“While not a bad cigar, it is not one I would have to have in the humidor. The start was very nice with a nice balance of coffee and cinnamon flavors. They started strong, tailed off to a mild flavor but then a bitter coffee then cinnamon/spice flavor prevailed. If this one would have maintained a consistent flavor it would be a great cigar. If you like a strong coffee you might enjoy this cigar. It burned well. It drew well and the form stayed strong.” - (smalls29)

“If you are looking for a full bodied cigar that is a smaller ring gauge this is the one.” – (KBS1153)
