Southern Draw Cigars has announced it has added two ongoing regular production vitolas to its Jacobs Ladder Brimstone line. The first is an all-new size in the form of a 6 x 44 Lonsdale. The second brings back a 5 x 58 Perfecto that was released two years ago under the name Oblivion. The new Brimstone sizes are a part of several line extensions Southern Draw has announced this past week.
The Lonsdale and 5 x 58 Perfecto join the Un Presidente and 6 x 56 Perfecto as regular production offerings under the Brimstone line. Brimstone is an offshoot of Southern Draw’s Jacobs Ladder line. The Jacobs Ladder line was introduced in 2017 and was positioned as Southern Draw Cigars’ boldest line. In 2019, Southern Draw released Brimstone, which was meant to be a more powerful blend. The Brimstone is a completely different blend from the original Jacobs Ladder.
“Despite the active rumor mill, Southern Draw Cigars has been very busy over the last eighteen months, these new releases represent only a portion of the line extensions and new products that have been slated for Fall/Winter 2022. We continue to evolve our product lines striving for balance by expanding our most popular blends while we keep an eye on our goal of producing consistent and sustainable premium hand made cigars, each honoring the most influential people in our lives,” shared Alex Nungaray, the recently hired Operations Manager of Southern Draw Cigars in a press release. “Let’s take this opportunity to remind our partners and consumers that this is a family-owned brand that remains committed to our mission even in the ever-changing face of the industry, numerous challenges and supply chain interruptions,” continued Alex.
The Lonsdale will be presented in 12-count boxes with a production slated for 5,000 boxes per year. Meanwhile, the 5 x 58 perfecto will be available in Southern Draw’s 5-count sampler DRAWpaks with a total production of 50,000 cigars per year. The Lonsdale will be priced at $9.99 while the 5 x 58 perfecto will be priced at $11.99. Both the Lonsdale and 5 x 58 Perfecto are shipping this month.
The Jacobs Ladder Brimstone has landed Southern Draw its two highest spots on the Cigar Coop Cigar of the Year Countdown, including 2020’s #9 Cigar of the Year for the 6 x 56 Perfecto and 2021’s #10 Cigar of the Year for Un Presidente.
