The cigar was solid to the touch and covered with a great looking oily brown wrapper. A lot of sweet earthy tones were evident on the pre-light smell and flavor.
1st quarter: Once lit, you will notice an instant creamy texture to the smoke with a touch of peppery notes through the nose. A smooth draw let full rich flavors onto the palate immediately. There was a creamy texture to the smoke along with an underlying sweetness. 2nd quarter: Some spices continued to develop through the nose. A smooth draw produced an even burn and bold yet subdued characters. Full flavors with an underlying full body came quickly into play. Some cocoa notes helped produce a dense smoke and great aroma. 3rd quarter: Plenty of creaminess came through with some dried fruit on the palate. There was also a roast flavor with some sweetness. Straightforward full flavors with a lot of earthy tobacco appeared along with spicy characters. 4th quarter: A slow and easy burn created a nice ash all the way through. It developed into a full body with a creamy texture and rich flavors of wood, spices and a hint of nuttiness on the palate. Spice through the nose was well balanced and the cigar was packed with consistent flavors.
The Crux Bull & Bear packed a nice punch of flavor to match its impressive construction. There were spices through the nose with a well-rounded texture on the palate. It is smoked with ease, offered great sweet and spicy notes and had a great burn all the way through.
