*(leaf developed and exclusive to Tabacalera Leyendas Cubanas)
This blend was created in keeping with our philosophy of creating flavorful, well balanced blends that are smooth with many transitions.
Iconic Leaf Cigar Company is proud that they have been able to bring quality and innovation together. This is only the beginning.
Tabacalera Leyendas Cubanas, which means Cuban Tobacco Legends, is run by J.R. Dominguez; he comes from generations of cigar manufacturers and he wants to have the greatest factory in the Dominican Republic.
The first blend released from this factory is the Recluse. Every leaf in the Recluse, the wrapper, the filler and the binder is fermented for two years.
Additional steps taken that separates the Tabacalera Leyendas Cubanas from others include 100% Entubao rolling. Every cigar that's rolled in the TLC factory is rolled in the cuban style of 'entubao'. Entubao means tubing. What we do is instead of bunching and pressing the filler, which can affect the draw, we take each filler leaf and roll it up into an individual tube and then we pull those three tubes together which creates three air channels. What you get with the three air channels is an effortless draw. By doing it this way you can do a better box press on the cigar. When you're compressing the airspace on a cigar, you're basically reducing the amount of combustion that you have because the airspace is reduced. So what you get with entubao is an effortless draw as well as a cooler, slower and straighter burn. The cigar refuses to burn hot.
We have invented new shapes ; we're blazing a new trail. The OTG on the Recluse stands for Off The Grid, because that's the way we do our whole business model. The new shape is called Kanu' It's really 'a Picasso'....it's the perfect 'storm' for cigars.
