The new cigar is named Crux Limitada PB5, a 5 3/4 x 54 box-pressed toro extra features a habano-seed Engañoso wrapper from Estelí, Nicaragua that the company says was secured over three years ago. The company says the Engañoso wrapper is exclusive to Crux. In addition, the cigar incorporates a Connecticut broadleaf binder as well as a filler that is made up of a combination of five different undisclosed tobaccos. Only 5,000 cigars will be produced packaged in boxes of 10, with each cigar retailing for $11.99.
According to the company, the Limitada PB5 is the inaugural release in a new series of different blends that will be released every year, each in only one vitola. As with each of the other eight lines in Crux’s portfolio, the new cigar is being rolled at Plasencia Cigars S.A. in Estelí, Nicaragua.
The Crux Limitada PB5 will be officially released at the 2015 IPCPR Convention & Trade Show, and are scheduled to be shipped to retailers in November.
