Crux Epicure Habano Robusto

Team Cigar Review: Crux Epicure Habano Robusto

The Crux Epicure Habano Robusto was an enjoyable review and might be one of my favorite releases from Crux in the past few years of releases. I found some engaging flavor combinations in the first and second thirds that were relatively balanced, with the earthiness in the last third taking a step down. I would definitely smoke the Crux Epicure Habano Robusto again, both based on the flavor profile delivered and the reasonable price point for the current market conditions.

Personal Cigar Review: Crux Epicure Gordo

Personal Cigar Review: Crux Epicure Gordo

The Crux Epicure Gordo had a nice start with a good combination of flavors. From the second third on, the enjoyment level dropped down a notch as there were some transitions and the profile became a bit dry. If you're a Connecticut shade fan and like the bigger ring gauges, then this would be a cigar to try.

Personal Cigar Review: Crux Limitada The Show 2020

While this Crux Limitada The Show 2020 doesn't live up to the 2016 release, it's still a serviceable cigar. I'm not sure I'd come back to this one all that often, but might on occasion. I look forward to future iterations of this blend.

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

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.
