Quick Smoke: Iconic Leaf Recluse Toro

14 Oct 2012

Each Saturday and Sunday we’ll post a Quick Smoke: not quite a full review, just our brief verdict on a single cigar of “buy,” “hold,” or “sell.”

My colleague already reviewed this new release from recently-formed Iconic Leaf. With a Brazilian maduro wrapper, a Cameroon binder, and filler tobaccos from the Dominican Republic, it’s an interesting blend, distinct from most else on the market. The result is a unique cigar with lots of winter spices (nutmeg, clove, and cinnamon), coffee, and leather. Construction is excellent on the Toro (6.25 x 50). With medium to full body and balanced, unique flavors, the Recluse is a welcome new addition to the premium cigar world.

Verdict = Buy.

    That band just creeps me out! Always liked cameroon wrappers- might have to give it a shot if I feel like triggering my arachnophobia! 😉

    Where can one buy this? Nowhere online yet, or maybe I am not a good enough Googler!

    Thank you Stogie Guys for the Buy rating. RECLUSE landed in the United States this morning and should be at retail shops nationwide on Friday 10/19/12. We are proud to announce that for customers who do not yet have a retailer in their area, our online presence will be Two Guys Smokeshop in New Hampshire.

    They have the ability to notify people to buy as soon as the product lands.

    You simply need to click “NOTIFY ME” meaning when they have it in hand… you will get a e-mail notification saying it is in stock and to ORDER NOW!

    It is set up and ready to go except they have the box counts listed wrong. All of the sizes except for the Kanu's are 24 count. The Kanu's are 20. They are in the process of fixing it as we speak. Just click on the link below
