The wrapper on the Crux Epicure Gordo is medium tan and has a few slightly raised veins. The seams are easily visible as they are a bit raised, while the head is finished off with a well applied set of caps. The band is the new design across the brands and this line carries a red, white and gold color combination. The aroma from the wrapper is dry, sweet hay while the foot brings wood, sweet hay and light pepper. The pre-light draw gives this nice powdery sweetness, almost like if you licked a stick of the bubble gum from inside of baseball cards along with dry cedar and a mild spiciness on my lips.
