Crux “Bull and Bear” Cigar.
At Crux Cigars, they believe cigars build friendships and community that unite people from all walks of life. They allow people to relax from the stressors of life and sort out the challenges that they face. Cigars allow their smokers to celebrate the moments that matter most, rewarding them for their successes and helping them to accept their failures. This is why Crux Bull are committed to building premium cigars of the highest quality and value. Each of their blends are developed with skill and craftsmanship that they hope their customers will agree, result in a great smoking experience.
Since 2014, the Crux brand has dedicated itself to producing the highest quality cigars, in an extensive variety of strengths and vitolas. Community, Craftsmanship, Integrity and Respect continue to be the benchmark of Crux Cigars, and this branding refresh—which includes a new logo, packaging design and messaging—serves as a recommitment to their customers, both existing and prospective.
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.
We smoke the Crux Bull and Bear in 2016 and now had a new look but same blend. The cigar has a great looking blue fancy band. It’s a very smooth and attractive cigar with a fantastic looking oily sheen wrapper. Keeping to the previous blend the pre-light smell of earthy and sweet tobacco notes.
Once the cigar was lit, it had an interesting spicy character in the aroma with more sweet tones. A very smooth draw and rich enticing characters were noticed right away. A tasty creamy texture which carried over to the taste.
The smoke had a lot of white pepper notes through the nose and lingered on the palate. The aroma was full and rich, and the smoke had more creamy texture. An underlying spice that built in strength as the cigar was smoked.
Some cocoa texture with a dense, mouthwatering texture. More spice picked up in the taste as the cigar was smoked and lingered through the finish of each puff. Still roast-like flavors with some nutty flavor on the my palate.
Packed with more consistent flavors. Full bodied at the end with the flavor and aroma to the match. There’s something new and different about the 2019 Crux Bull when the blend is suppose to be the same. Great burn and construction well balanced and rich and an overall excellent cigar.
