Team Cigar Review: Crux Epicure Maduro Toro

Team Cigar Review: Crux Epicure Maduro Toro

The cigar falls into the same one liner summary that I've used for most of the new cigars coming out of Tabacalera AJ Fernandez lately; great construction but the flavors are fairly average. I think the Crux Epicure Maduro Toro would appeal to cigar smokers who typically reach for the more mass market style of Maduro cigars.

Team Cigar Review: Crux Limitada Redline Toro

Whenever I read Crux using their signature Nicaraguan Engañoso wrapper leaf, I know I'm in for a treat based off how much I enjoyed the original PB5 and IPCPR Limitadas. For the Redline version, I felt as if the cigar was more spice forward (red pepper spice and cedar) and didn't have as well melded of a formula as the OG PB5 and IPCPR Limitadas. But overall, it is still a good cigar and worth checking out.

The interplay of red pepper spice, nuts, buttered toast and baking spices at various parts of the cigar was enjoyed quite a bit. However, the dryness that took over within the final third was the only miss. Even saying this, I prefer the Crux Epicure Short Salomone over the Robusto because the build ups and transitions are worth it over the dryness.

There is something truly special about the Engañoso wrapper. Knowing it's limited availability, don't snooze on these as when they are gone, you'll be SOL and will be crying in the corner. Simply delicious.
