April 30, 2018--IGNITE project release #2 will be an exciting new size for the award winning Rose of Sharon. The medium bodied blend that was blessed as the 2017 #1 Cigar of the Year by Stogie Geeks (Joe D.) and Tuesday Night Cigar Club, #2 Cigar of the Year by Phillip Kohn a.k.a. the Katman with a perfect 100 rating, the #8 Cigar of the Year by HalfWheel – the Consensus, and 10 other Top 25 Cigars of the Year will now be offered in a special round format.
Each perfecto is 6x56 and will offer its own custom IGNITE band. The perfectos will be presented in two custom, limited edition humi-jars of 10 cigars each. The exclusive jars were authorized for use by founding sponsor Famous Smoke Shop, the nation’s #1 discount retailer of premium cigars online. The jars display the words "IGNITE SOME GOOD" along with a decal on the top representing the designated charity for the Rose of Sharon Perfecto. Operation Cigars for Warriors was selected by Famous Smoke Shop and Southern Draw Cigars. Inside each jar is an informational brochure about the charity, a coupon for a future order from Famous and a 2-way humidity packet supplied by Boveda, Inc. who is also a sponsor of the IGNITE project.
The official IGNITE Rose of Sharon release event will take place on Saturday, May 12th, 2018 at Leaf Cigar Bar & Restaurant located on the Famous Smoke Shop premises at 90 Mort Drive, Easton, PA 18040. Additionally, the new release will be available for purchase either online or in-store during the May 12 event. Details and a direct link to purchase the perfectos will be posted on event day for those that cannot attend the event and desire to support the charity and the new release.
“IGNITE release #2 holds a very special meaning at Southern Draw, as the Famous Smoke Shop family joins us once again this time to IGNITE some good as we bring another exciting new cigar to the market.
