CigarCraig’s 12 Spectacular Days of Cigar Giveaways 2013 Day 2: Iconic Leaf/Recluse Cigars

You know, I was expecting a large turn out for yesterday’s contest, and, once again, Gurkha Nation exceeds my expectations!  336 entries, and almost 1500 page views yesterday alone. A new record!  It was a stunning turnout and really made determining the winner difficult! A couple requests for the future: please don’t ‘reply’ to comments but leave a new comment as it interrupts the timeline. Also, there’s no need to proactively send me your address just in case you won.  I want you to come back the next day to see if you won!  Anyway, after hours of deliberation, the winning number was 177, which matches up with Angela Torres! Congrats!  Send me your shipping info so I can get this out to you!  I really enjoy reading all the comments, by the way, thank you all!  Let’s see what goodies are offered in today’s giveaway…


Day 2

I’m very excited about today’s present.  I’ve been a fan of Recluse Cigars from Iconic Leaf Cigar Co. from their beginning.  I’ve had the pleasure of talking to JR Dominguez and Scott Weeks at the last two IPCPR shows and these guys make cigars the right way.  Every cigar is constructed using the entubado method, and they ferment their tobacco differently from most, using at least eight fermentation cycles.  They have generously provided a box of Recluse Draconian Robustos for today’s present.  The Draconian is the second release from Iconic Leaf. This is a box pressed robusto with a Ecuadorian Maduro wrapper and a mix off fillers including a Brazilian hybrid leaf and an exclusive Ligero. I’ve smoked the “Sidewinder” in the Draconian line and it’s an exceptional cigar!  These will be an awesome addition to someone’s humidor!


Recluse Draconian Robusto

Thanks to Scott at Iconic Leaf for providing today’s present!  You know what to do next!


Here’s how you enter: leave a comment.  That’s it, plain and simple.  Tweets don’t count, but feel free to spread the word, only comments on this page count as an entry.  Each day there will be a different prize and the winner will be drawn from that day’s comments. The winner will be announced on the next day’s post. The contest is open to everyone, even if you’ve won one of my contests in the past six months, but once you’ve won, you are ineligible to win again in this series of contests. All prizes will be mailed as soon as I get a chance to go to the post office, or whenever the sponsor decides to ship, whichever is the case, so don’t make me chase down your address!  Please e-mail your contact information to as soon as possible!

That’s it, leave a comment to enter and good luck. Check back tomorrow to see if you won and enter tomorrow’s contest!


Until Tomorrow,

  20. It would be nice if everyone could win but if you don’t and you cannot find them at your local brick and mortar store, you can find Recluse Cigars simply by clicking on the Smoke Inn add below the comments on any of these pages. They have a large selection of Recluse OTG and Recluse Draconian. Best wishes everyone a Merry Christmas!
