Iconic Leaf Recluse Draconian Robusto Cigar Review

This 5×50 box pressed stick features a red cloth foot band over a dark chocolate mottled wrapper with minimal veins, tight invisible seams, an even spongy pack, soft oily buttery texture, tripe cap and rich cedar aroma. First light reveals a perfect draw with plentiful medium bodied smoke showing creamy, bread yeast and earth notes with a soft oily short finish. The first third builds interest with a smooth earthy core and a creamy coffee and spice that lasts through the now longer finish. 25 minutes in at the 1/2 way point the ash falls in a solid chunk and flavors remain the same. Ending at 55 minutes, the last third brings in a mild-medium strength and adds a minty flavor while deepening the earth. Thank you very much to Iconic Leaf for providing this sample for review!

    Sounds like a good cigar, how much it cost?

    Love your reviews Bryan!

      These sound great – I believe the price point on these is solidly in the $8 range.

    This is one I’d really like to try. Hope it shows up round my way soon.

    The shop near me is getting these as soon as they sell all their Iconic Leaf Recluse stock to make room for the Draconian. Needless to say, I am trying to push people over there to buy out their current stock.

    A cigar that actually makes you drool, I cant wait!

    Geez! The graphic quality of these videos have gotten so good. I still watch the older ones when I need reference for a cigar purchase. But for the initial split second you held up that Leaf Recluse, I thought it was a high-end corporate-sponsored commercial for a candy bar.

    At last! A new line that I actually know a B&M that is carrying them! Granted, it’s a 2 hour drive, but I know where they are! Yay!

    Kind of off topic but I just went back and watched the other Iconic Leaf review…you’ve lost a ton of weight man, very noticeable. Congratulations! Going to give this one a try over Labor Day.
