Crux Cigars rebranded all of their cigar packaging a couple years ago and started with their core lines. The brands that did not get immediately refreshed were put on hold. Now, that refresh is finally coming to the Du Connoisseur line.
"It's a fantastic cigar. I'm not going to say it will wow you with it's dynamic profile changes because it won't. The flavors are the same from beginning to end but they're crisp and bold the entire time. It just does so many things right that it's impossible not to recommend and if I was after a great experience that I was just wanting to relax and enjoy smoking I would reach for again and again.
