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.

The new blend builds upon the success of the Crux Epicure, but is wrapped in a premium Mexican San Andres Maduro wrapper, with Nicaraguan binder and fillers. The combination results in a medium-full flavored cigar delivering notes of rich mocha, cedar, earth, and black pepper that are bound together with an underlying creaminess.
