Recluse Cigar Company announces the release of Recluse OTG Habano. The Recluse OTG Habano is the fourth expansion of Recluse Cigar Companies original OTG Maduro blend which was the companies very first blend that was offered to the U.S. market. J.R. Dominguez, who is one of the companies founders said, ” The OTG Maduro has always been my personal favorite. Now I have a problem; I cannot make up my mind which one I like the best!”
The Recluse OTG Habano features a Grade A Habano wrapper and the cigar is also comprised of a variety of Dominican and San Andreas fillers. The Recluse OTG Habano will be showcased at the 2016 IPCPR tradeshow in Las Vegas, NV. July 25th-28th.
Tabacalera Leyendas Cubanas 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 is fermented for Two years and every cigar is rolled in the Cuban style of ‘entubado’ which is tubing. Instead of bunching and pressing the filler, each filler leaf is rolled into an individual tube and then pulled together which creates three air channels. The three air channels deliver an effortless draw. This also allows for a better box press on the cigar. The box press compresses the airspace in the cigar. It is basically reducing the amount of combustion because the airspace is reduced. This combination provides an effortless draw as well as a cooler, slower and straighter burn. The cigar refuses to burn hot.
We have invented new shapes. The OTG on the Recluse stands for Off The Grid and that is our business model. The new shape is called Kanu’ (pictured above) and it’s a Picasso.
It’s the perfect storm.
Design: As far as design goes; Recluse is designed to take every retail consideration in mind. There are bar codes on each individual cigar. On the boxes it is on the outside of the cellophane.
