"I really liked this cigar. My only complaints were the somewhat muddy flavors of the final third and the stick's overall average smoke production. The flavors of this smoke were very well-blended and played off of one another really well. I really liked the sweetness in the flavor profile because it was never cloying or ordinary -- always buttressed by cedar and toast. The performance of this lancero was surprisingly stellar. With a medium strength and perfectly complex body, this stick would pair well with a sweet tea after lunch, or, because of the cigar's slightly-sweet profile, a fresh vanilla milkshake." -Ryan (Youngryan216)
Earlier this year, Crux Cigars announced a total rebrand for their company including new logos, boxes and bands for all their cigars. Crux showed these off at the IPCPR 2019 trade show in Las Vegas. The first phase of this rebrand includes Epicure, Epicure Maduro, and Guild blends in all their viotlas. This first phase is the portion shipping now. Phase 2 will include Limitada and the Bull & Bear and will take place later in the year.
Crux Cigars announces the wide release of the Crux Epicure. They are shipping to retail partners throughout the country, starting the week of 11/27/17. The Crux Epicure was originally announced at the 2016 IPCPR Show, and sampled at the 2017 IPCPR Show.
"This was really a nice smoke for me that came at just the right time...mellow flavors (albeit plenty) that nailed my palate perfectly today. I typically like more fullness in the strength, but this was a nice switch. Perfect for the morning, or for the first of a couple smokes. Personally, I'd like a few more!" -Jason H. (Jokey Smurf)
