Meet Jeff Haugen and Joel Rogers, co-owners of Crux Cigar Company, who have expanded beyond retail to production. In April 2014, Crux Cigar Company is releasing three different blends in two different vitolas after more than three years in development. Three more blends follow in May.
"While this cigar might be delicate to look at, it was a powerhouse in the flavor department. The first third bounced around with some bolder flavors while the second third set this cigar up for a grand finale. The final portion of this cigar made me wish I grabbed it on a cool morning with a cup of coffee and the day in front of me. What a wonderful smoke." -Gregg (McGreggor57)
"Overall, a very good cigar. The first two thirds of the cigar was awesome. It really kept me on my toes of trying to figure out that "wood fire" and "hickory bbq" note. I would happily get a fiver of this cigar. A couple to smoke now and a few to smoke within the half year marks. Great way to end my BMP review year with this tastiness!" -Jiunn (jliu)
"This is a good short smoke. Nothing too revolutionary, but definitely a good worthwhile lunch smoke. It had great promise and I would smoke it if time was in a pinch. The flavors were great to start and construction hampered it, but I don't think it's a bad cigar by any means." -Jack (Jack_H)
Crux du Connoisseur To Be Released in September (Miami, Fl.) - After announcing its five vitola Guild blend, Crux Cigars is proud to provide details on the second of three brand new lines that will be available in the second half of this year.
"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)
"This was a very good cigar. Strong enough in body to keep me involved, but not overbearing in any sense. I love the semi-sweet chocolate notes that paired with the espresso and wood...right in my wheelhouse. This was paired with black coffee and I couldn't have been happier. Give me more smoke output and I'd be chasing a box." -Jason H. (Jokey Smurf)
