IPCPR 2013 – Iconic Leaf and Recluse Cigars

Yesterday I visited with the folks at Iconic Leaf and J.D. Dominguez showed me his newest creation, the Recluse Draconian Sidewinder, in what looks to be a 7″ x 60 box press. I’ve loved these guys since I met them last year at the show and pick up a recluse cigar or two whenever I see them in my local shop (one of them carries them!).  I smoked the cigar that was featured in the video at the show (the only cigar I smoked on the show floor yesterday) and it was fantastic. Rich and full of great flavor and burned perfectly.  It’s more of a good thing, that’s for sure.  the only drawback was that I was frequently distracted and it lasted 2 hours or so!  If you haven’t tried the Recluse line, hunt them down.


Here’s the video:


I’m off to celebrate my wife’s birthday by seeing the Cirque du Soliel LOVE show at the Mirage next door.  We’ll see where the night takes us after that!

Until the next time,
