Cigar of The Week: Southern Draw Rose of Sharon

Rose of Sharon keeps to the theme of naming its core blends after flowering plants. In a press release by the company it says it “selected the Rose of Sharon in part for its biblical expression that first appeared in the King James Bible in 1611, the Song of Solomon 2:1 ‘I am the rose of Sharon, the lily of the valley’ and to celebrate ‘the Belle’ of Southern Draw, Sharon Holt whose calming hand, tireless devotion and personal touch have defined the culture of the Southern Draw brand.”
