Press Release: Two Guys Smoke Shop selects Recluse Amadeus Habano Reserva as the award recipient for its prestigious 2015 Cigar of the Year.

Since 1992 Two Guys Smoke Shop has announced the prestigious Cigar of the Year award. The award is given out on the Saturday before the Super Bowl each year.

Two Guys Smoke Shops are owned by David Garafalo who is well known throughout the cigar industry. According to their website, Two Guys Smoke shops are the largest volume independently owned retail stores in the country.

The contenders for Cigar of the Year were released in November 2015 and the selection criteria for the Cigar of the Year award was based on three catagories:

  1. Overall sales of the brand.

  2. Consumer votes

  3. Employee votes

Scott Weeks, one of the company’s founders says, “We knew we had a great cigar but we were up against the establishment candidates and we were hopeful, however, we were not expecting to win against the other more well-known brands. This is exciting and humbling to have our work recognized in this way.”

Recluse Amadeus Habano Reserva retails from $7.50 to $10.50 and is available in six sizes:

  • Robusto (5 x 52)

  • Toro (6.25 x 50) and

  • Tarantula (6 x 60

  • Sidewinder #1 (5 x57)

  • Sidewinder #1 (6 x57)

  • Sidewinder #1 (7 x57)

Haven't had any of their lines.  That good eh?

I'm skeptical of top lists from vendors but Coop also gave this cigar high marks and Robby was high on their Draconian line in 2014.  So I recently ordered a few of both cigars from Corona.

I've heard a few folks make mention of them being a great smoke that most people don't even know.  I remember seeing them in Smoke Inn when I lived down there, but other than that, I've not seen them anywhere else.

These are actually quite tasty...I didn't like their Brazilian wrapped blend so much but this Habano was quite tasty.

It's a very good cigar. I had it in my Top 20 (#19).
