Three new Crux cigars will make their debut at this month’s Tobacco Plus Expo 2020 trade show and ship shortly after it.
The Crux Limitada Show Exclusive will get a winter release. This year’s version is a 5 x 52 box-pressed vitola with a 109-style cap that the company refers to as a marblehead. The 109 cap is a hybrid between a typical round parejo cap and a belicoso tip.
Blend-wise, the Limitada uses a Nicaraguan Engañoso wrapper over a Connecticut broadleaf and fillers from the Dominican Republic and Nicaragua. Crux says the Engañoso tobacco is exclusive to the company.
Pricing is set at $10.99 per cigar and it is limited to 1,000 boxes of 20 cigars.
Previous versions of the Limitada have been shown off at the IPCPR Convention & Trade Show, now known as the PCA Convention & Trade Show.
Crux’s Epicure Maduro line will get two new sizes: Corona Gorda (5 3/8 x 46, $9.25) and Gordo (6 x 60, $12.50).
The Epicure Maduro debuted last year in three sizes. It uses a Mexican San Andrés wrapper and Nicaraguan fillers.
All Crux cigars are made at Plasencia Cigars S.A. with the exception of the Epicure Maduro, which is made at Tabacalera AJ Fernandez Cigars de Nicaragua S.A.
Crux says it will ship the cigars the week after TPE 2020, which takes place Jan. 29-31 in Las Vegas.
