Team Cigar Review: Crux Epicure Maduro Corona Gorda

Team Cigar Review: Crux Epicure Maduro Corona Gorda

The Crux Epicure Maduro Corona Gorda was a good offering of the Epicure Maduro blend in a vitola that seems to shine. The first third was the most complex, and the second third delivered enough flavor balance to maintain interest. The complexity fell off in the last third but was still pleasant.

Team Cigar Review: Crux Limitada PB5 2020

The Crux Limitada PB5 2020 was overall a pleasant experience, rating just above average for complexity and flavors. The construction was excellent. Given the limited nature of the cigar, I was expecting the complexity to be better through the second and last third, but I would smoke this cigar again if I had the opportunity.

Team Cigar Review: Crux Limitada Short Salomone

The Crux Limitada Short Salomone has some good qualities within the opening third, but past that mark, the balance is thrown off and nuance declined. This is my least favorite of the line and will focus on the other vitolas over this one.
