Last year, Crux Cigars brought its new Epicure line to the 2016 IPCPR Convention & Trade Show, but not much has been heard of the line since.
The trade show is back next month and now Crux is promising a national launch for its Epicure line, which will also be getting a fourth size. Epicure is Crux’s first Connecticut line, using an Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper with a Nicaraguan binder and Nicaraguan fillers.
There are now four sizes, the three originally announced sizes and a new Corona Gorda.
- Crux Epicure Robusto (5 x 50) – $10 (Boxes of 10, $100)
- Crux Epicure Toro (6 1/4 x 52) — $10.75 (Boxes of 10, $107.50)
- Crux Epicure Robusto Extra (5 3/4 x 54) — $11.50 (Boxes of 10, $115)
- Crux Epicure Corona Gorda (5 3/8 x 46) — $9.25 (Boxes of 10, $92.50)
“We have always promised ourselves not to cut corners or compromise in our efforts to blend the best quality and consistent premium cigars,” said Casey Haugen, vp of Crux Cigars, in a press release. “We understand people are anxious to smoke the Epicure, but there have been circumstances that have held up the release. However, we are happy to announce the Epicure is ready to launch and will include an additional size.”
The Epicure Corona Gorda debuted in May at ZT Cigars’ Smoklahoma 2017 event.
Haugen told halfwheel the cigars will begin shipping nationally in Q4 2017.
