NEW RELEASE: Southern Draw Jacob’s Ladder ‘The Ascension’ | Cigar Reviews by the Katman

“On September 23, 2021, Southern Draw Cigars will release the newest Jacobs Ladder, a Belicoso Fino which is 5.5×52, a size that we customarily offer with a box press and open foot format, a blend that takes us back to a 2013 version of this brand. Produced in September 2016 at AJ Fernandez Cigar Co., the celebratory release has been well aged and honors the 21st birthday of its namesake, Ethan Jacob Holt.

“Southern Draw Cigars is proud to announce that Famous Smoke Shop, Easton, PA will honor us by hosting the premiere release beginning at 5pm on September 23, 2021, with whiskey tastings and appetizers to celebrate the newest iteration of the Jacobs Ladder line. “We were wondering what Robert and Sharon had up their sleeves when we saw them next…turns out it’s this deep, rich, box pressed Belicoso. Been looking forward to having a cigar together with the Holts for quite a while – this one sure is worth the wait,” said longtime Famous buyer Humberto Gonzalez. “And we’re as excited as Robert is, to share this Jacob’s Ladder with everyone at Famous.”

  1. My one year old grandson has the great Old Testament name of Jacob.

  2. And may I introduce to you, the one and only…Ethan Jacob Holt.

  3. Hi Phil,
    I just caught this pic of you and your grandson. The pic captures so much between both of you.
    I got this feeling of “calm” and “peace” between both of you. Your expression alone; that is the product of your grandson’s touch, is priceless.
    Wishing you many more priceless moments with him.
    From one grandfather to another, enjoy the time spent. He’s a little blessing from heaven.
    Phil Matzelle

  4. I don’t know what to say other than thank you, Phil.
    All the best,
