The Crux Epicure Maduro is a Nicaraguan blend wrapped in a San Andres Maduro wrapper. This toothy San Andrés wrapper is chocolate brown in hue, with a gritty texture, visible thin veins, and well-blended seams.
Starting with cocoa, earth, dried fruit, and occasional rushes of black pepper, the aroma evolves into chocolate, earth, dried fruit, and occasional rushes of black pepper. While cocoa notes are prominent in the first third, earth and pepper aromas will take center stage as the cigar progresses. In the last third, complexity is added as aromas of cedar and dried fruit emerge in the background, leaving a pleasant finish to a well-made maduro.
