  1. I have not had the opportunity to smoke any of the Recluse brand, to be honest until this contest I had never heard of this brand. In saying that and after reading your reviews it looks like I cigar that I am going to look forward to trying one of these days. Hopefully a box to share among friends or trying to find one at the local shop!

  2. I have not partaken in smoking a recluse cigar. I know very little but would love to esperience the flavor blending as offered by brand. This would be cherished on the first hot day on the beach.

    Tasters crireria:

    Hand around my rum.
    Arms in my lap my teen girl.

    Perfection marry them young age them to perfection just like s recluse.

    I have not tried a recluse. I haven't seen them in a cigar shop yet.

    What do I know? Based on the above, they seem aptly named. I would like to try one

  4. I haven't smoked a Recluse yet, but I've heard so much about them recently that I am dying to try them.

    I don't know much about the Recluse Kanú but I have heard the Kanú was inspired by a Kayak boat. It is now copywrited and the trademark has been applied for. This will be only the second time a cigar shape has been trademarked. It is also the first time in history this shape has been done. The cigar is in the shape of a box pressed perfecto if you will. It has subtle cornering and is aerodynamic in fashion. It was a painstaking process to perfect this new shape but we have mastered it. The shape smokes razor sharp with a full easy compliment of flavorful smoke on the draw. It is a masterpiece!

    I haven't smoke one yet, and this is the first time I hear from them. Excited to try them as soon as I can.

  6. I can’t find the Recluse so I have not had a chance to smoke it yet let alone take a picture of it. I have read quite a bit about it and am looking forward to it.

    The only thing I know about the Kanu is what I read on your site, specifically..."This first of its kind vitola is called Kanú, and it looks like a kayak the way it is shaped. It is a true perfect, but box pressed and finishes with a lovely pigtail cap."

    Very interesting and would love to try it.

    The Kanu is a gorgeous looking cigar but I was not able to find it even through my most dependable source. I have not smoked a cigar that looks quite like the Kanu but fingers crossed..maybe one will be coming around soon.

    Any idea where I could get one in the DC metro area?

  12. I have not had the privilege of smoking a Recluse yet. They look great and I love the design on the box. I'm glad to see that a couple of shops carry them online.

    The only thing I know about the Kanu is that you reviewed it Seth and seemed to really like it. The flavor profile and construction seem to be excellent and I really want to try one now!

    Thanks for the contest guys!

  13. I am one of the lucky view to have enjoyed numerous Recluse Iconic OTG. They are by far my favorite smoke to date. Though I am still new to the cigar scene, I have smoked a various amount of cigars.

    My local cigar shop does have the Recluse Kanú but as a college student, they are currently out of my price range. What I do know is how badly I want to try one. I may have to put a few extra dollars aside this week to pick one up. I am aware of how unique this cigar is, at the moment the only cigar of its type.

    Keep up the superior quality

    I have had several Recluse brands and they are exceptional smokes. I was able to score some during Lite Up Charlotte in October '12. I still have a few sticks in my humi.

    I have not smoked the Recluse Kanu, unfortunately! However, I know that it is a uniquely shaped like a kayak. I also know that this cigar marks only the second time in history that a cigar shape has been trademarked. It has a unique curl at the head of the cigar, which I'm guessing can potentially be twisted off for a nice draw opening. I'm also pretty sure that I saw this cigar sitting out in the lobby area for sale at Havana Phil's!

    I have not smoked a Recluse yet. I am expecting some in the mail, so I've been waiting to write this, but they have not arrived yet. So, I decided it was time to write this, maybe they will arrive in time for me to post a pic for the extra contest. I am really excited to try them. Hearing good things and I think the branding looks sweet.

    I do not know of the Kańu. I even tried to find some information, but was unable to find anything. Weird. So, I'm ready to find something out. This is still a new brand to me.

    I have not had the pleasure of smoking a Recluse cigar. The only information I know is from online as well as that they came up with their own unique size. I am eager to try one! Thanks for the contest.

    I just had my first recluse cigar the other night! It was fantastic. I haven't heard very much about the Kanu, interested in trying it out though.
