The Crux Epicure Maduro is now shipping to stores.

Crux Cigars has announced the Epicure Maduro, a three-size follow-up to the company’s Epicure line with a Mexican San Andrés wrapper and Nicaraguan fillers. If that sounds familiar, it’s because last year the company announced the Epicure Galant with the same specifications.

As it turns out, both the name and factory have changed. Galant was changed due to a trademark concern—probably due to El Galan—and the factory has been changed to Tabacalera AJ Fernandez Cigars de Nicaragua S.A., marking the first time the company has made a cigar outside of the Plasencia factory.

  • Crux Epicure Maduro Robusto (5 x 50) — $10 (Boxes of 10, $100)
  • Crux Epicure Maduro Toro (6 1/4 x 52) — $11.50 (Boxes of 10, $115)
  • Crux Epicure Maduro Robusto Extra (5 3/4 x 54) — $10.75 (Boxes of 10, $107.50)

The Epicure Maduro is a regular production release.
