As Recluse Cigar Company continues to roll out its major portfolio expansion, this time the company goes back to its roots and builds upon the blend that started it all. At next week’s IPCPR Trade Show opening July 25th, 2016 in Las Vegas, the company will introduce the new Recluse OTG Connecticut.  This cigar is the fourth blend announced by Recluse Cigar Company over the past week.


It was in 2012 when the company released its debut cigar, the Recluse OTG Maduro. The new OTG Connecticut Shade expands that original blend, this time incorporating a Connecticut Shade wrapper. The Recluse OTG Connecticut is the first OTG-branded cigar since that original debut release.

The Recluse OTG Connecticut uses a Grade A Connecticut Shade wrapper.  In addition, the blend features a mix of Sumatra and Dominican filler. Consistent with the other roll outs, the Recluse OTG Connecticut is being released in 14 vitolas, including the company’s signature Sidewinder and Kanu sizes.

Recluse Cigar Company co-founder J.R. Dominguez commented said in a press release, “From the very beginning and until this day, The OTG blend is my personal favorite”.

The Recluse OTG Connecticut joins the Recluse Amadeus Los Cabos Recluse Amadeus Rosado, and Recluse Amadeus Corojo Reserva  as lines announced by Recluse Cigar Company thus far for 2016. The company’s other Connecticut Shade offering is the Recluse Amadeus Connecticut.
