[RECAP] Horse Soldier & The American by J.C. Newman V-Herf
Our Special Guest was retired Green Beret Special Forces Commander, Mark Nutsch, who led a team of warriors that were the first Americans inserted into Northern Afghanistan following the attacks of 9/11. We drank Captain Mark’s Horse Soldier Bourbon from American Freedom Distillery and paired it with The American by the J.C. Newman Cigar Company that features our Florida Sun Grown wrapper. If you weren't able to join us live, you can still check it out on our Virtual Herfs page!
The American is the first cigar rolled with Florida Sun Grown wrapper, grown by Corona Cigar Co.’s Jeff Borysiewicz in Clermont, Florida. The binder is Connecticut Broadleaf grown by eighth-generation family farmer Jon Foster and the filler is a blend of Foster’s Connecticut Havana tobacco with tobaccos grown by the Mennonites in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania.
