Well this is exciting to say the least. It has been far too long since I have smoked a Crux cigar and I dug deep in my humidor to find this Guild and thought “Why not put this on paper”. So here we go!
Construction - I was shocked and also pleased that through the beating this cigar has taken over the few years I have had it, that it is still in amazing condition. Minus a little bit of a cap peel, this cigar has aged like Pharrelle on all the HGH and looks better than ever.
Burn - The burn on this cigar was even and consistent from beginning to end. The draw was just a tad bit tight at the start but opened up quickly and provided wonderful smoke production while consistently exhausting that really nice layered ash.
Flavor - Although I usually don’t define cigars by their boldness, this cigar is in fact a FULL bodied cigar. It’s not even subjective. It is meaty. Beef… It’s what’s for dinner. It is like a butcher cut up some premium ribeye and layered it with all of the pepper and spice. This cigar really offers up a nice savoriness, and pepper being the main component only with a hint of sweetness in the background. It is actually a nice and refreshing departure from most cigars I have smoked as of recent.
The best part? You will only pay about 8.00 for this cigar, which in my opinion makes it a good deal, especially if you like a peppery richness in your cigars.
We realize when you smoke a Crux, you invest an hour of your life to experience our cigars. Our commitment to you is building cigars of the highest quality and craftsmanship, beginning with only the finest of premium tobacco.
