Iconic Leaf Cigar Company has announced their third release, the Recluse Amadeus.  The Recluse Amadeus adds a Ecuadorian Connecticut in both the box-press and the company’s unique Sidewinder vitola offering.

In a press release by Iconic Leaf Cigar Company, they described the Recluse Amadeus as follows:

“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.”

Iconic Leaf Cigar Company was launched in 2012 with the release of the Recluse OTG.  This was followed up in 2013 with the release of the Recluse Draconian.   The Recluse OTG was an Honorable Mention on our 2012 Cigar of the Year countdown while the Recluse Draconian was our #24 Cigar for 2013.
