We sat down at IPCPR 2014 in Las Vegas to talk to Scott Weeks and JR Dominguez of Iconic Leaf Cigar Company to find out what they’ve got in the works for 2014. Their new release is the Recluse Amadeus.
“The Recluse Amadeus blend will be in keeping with our two year fermentation process and 100% Entubar rolling style. We have truly outdone ourselves with this new offering. The cigar is rich and flavorful with a smoothness that is undeniably Recluse. This new offering will be released IPCPR 2014 in Las Vegas, Nevada on July 19th 2014. We will have an advance release to select retailers on June 15th, 2014.” – Recluse Amadeus Press-Release
The Amadeus is available in the following sizes: 5×52 box-pressed robusto, 6.25×50 box-pressed toro, 6×60 box-press they coined “Tarantula” and three special editions called the Sidewinder 1 (5×57), 2 (6×57) and 3 (7×57) which are a unique vitola that Iconic Leaf invented. The blend is a complex mixture of tobaccos from around the world with a Dominican base. It’s composed of a Connecticut seed Ecuadorian grade A wrapper, a propriety binder called MBC, with mainly Dominican fillers and a small amount of Connecticut broadleaf.
JR also showed us is the E.L.F. (Eight Legged Freak) Pack which provides 3 lengths of each of their main lines in their proprietary vitoalas the Sidewinder and the Kanú.
