After a more than 20-month hiatus, Crux Cigars will resume shipping its Du Connoisseur line on Monday.

The Crux Du Connoisseur is returning with all-new packaging, though the blend remains the same: a habano wrapper from Jalapa, Nicaragua, a Nicaraguan binder and fillers from Honduras. Crux stopped selling the Du Connoisseur in late 2019 after the company began rolling out its new packaging options for various lines.

“The Du Connoisseur is such an important re-release for Crux to continue our commitment to the small ring market,” said Casey Haugen, vp of Crux Cigars, in a press release. “The reintroduction of the Du Connoisseur has been met with great enthusiasm with our retail partners.”

Crux will begin shipping the newly-packaged version of the Du Connoisseur on Monday, June 28.
