6:30-7:30pm – Interview: Robert Holt, Southern Draw Cigars
This week we welcome Robert Holt, Founder and Chief Evangelist of Southern Draw Cigars.
Their mission statement: Our vision is based on the tradition of the “Southern” Gentlemen which is referred to as a “culture of honor”, that is, a culture where people avoid intentionally offending others and maintain a reputation for not accepting improper conduct by others. The Southern culture of honor also includes a notion that ladies should not be insulted by gentlemen, so we recommend that whenever possible you include the ladies in our unique lifestyle choices. I think we can all agree that these are good principles to live by, no matter our current environment, mindset, stress level or even the mounting pressures of life and as such we will strive to promote the Southern culture along with each of our hand crafted cigars. We also respect the vital importance of the “Draw”, referring to that wonderful, tightly rolled bundle of dried and fermented tobacco that is ignited so that its smoke may be “effortlessly” drawn into the mouth and in our case, we offer you a guaranteed Simply Perfect Draw. We have addressed the objective measures of our cigars through our exacting standards, and we suggest that you make a diligent effort to appreciate these cultures that we have married together, relax friends and enjoy some of life’s true pleasures.
