The march toward 126 new SKUs continues for Recluse Cigar Company, as today it announced the fourth of its nine new lines, the OTG Connecticut.

The Recluse OTG Connecticut is an expansion of Recluse Cigar Co.’s original OTG Maduro blend, the first offered to the U.S. market. “The OTG blend was the blend that we hung our hat on from the beginning and it is part of the initial foundation that this company was built on,” according to Scott Weeks, president of Recluse Cigar Co., in a statement issued on Friday.

The new OTG Connecticut features a Connecticut shade wrapper over Dominican and Sumatra fillers, with more specific details about the blend not immediately available.

I strive to capture the essence of a cigar and the people behind them in my work – every cigar you light up is the culmination of the work of countless people and often represents generations of struggle and stories. For me, it’s about so much more than the cigar – it’s about the story behind it, the experience of enjoying the work of artisans and the way that a good cigar can bring people together. In addition to my work with halfwheel, I’m the public address announcer for the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks during spring training, as well as for the Salt River Rafters of the Arizona Fall League, the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury and the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
