Last year Crux Cigars hit the market in force and we were greeted with a multitude of offerings. They had offerings that reached out to a variety of smokers, and on a personal level I enjoyed their entire portfolio- Passport, Bull & Bear, Classic, Skeeterz, and Ninfamaniac The company ended up on my Top 25 of 2020 with one of their releases- Ninfamaniac Dark, and after such a big year I thought they would have a quiet sophomore year. Turns out that is not the case, and at this year's show they will be releasing three new lines. They have not revealed all the lines, but they are ready to talk about one of them, The Crux Guild.
A 2021 release, the Crux Guild is being described as "a complex and rich blend with a mosaic of flavors that will delight your palate." The cigar is covered with an Ecuadorian Habano wrapper, and has a binder and filler blend that is all Nicaraguan. Staying true to past release, the Crux Guild will be regular production and production is coming out of Plasencia Cigars in Esteli, Nicaragua. There are five vitolas with the launch: the Crux Guild Corona (5.5" with a 42 ring gauge), the Crux Guild Robusto (5" by 50 ring gauge), the Crux Guild Robusto Extra (5.25 by 54 ring gauge), the Crux Guild Toro (6" by 50 ring gauge) and the Crux Guild Toro Extra Marblehead (Box Pressed 6.5" with a 52 ring gauge). All five sizes will be sold in boxes of 20.
