Crux Cigars has announced its newest release that will be shown at the 2015 IPCPR Convention & Trade Show.
Named Crux Guild, the new regular production line is composed of Nicaraguan tobacco used in both the binder and filler and is covered by an Ecuadorian habano wrapper leaf. As with all Crux Cigars released so far, the Guild is being produced at the Plasencia Cigars S.A. factory in Estelí, Nicaragua.
“The Guild release is meant to honor the craftsmanship and history of cigars as a hand made product, which allows each person who enjoys them to be ‘United By The Leaf,”‘ reads a press release. “This new cigar is the pinnacle of talent and determination. Just as skilled metallurgists created great coats of armor, the Crux Guild is a symbol, and we hope, an example of masterful achievement.”
The new line will be available in five different sizes at launch, all of which are being sold in boxes of 20: the Crux Guild Corona (5 1/2 x 42, $6.99), the Crux Guild Robusto (5 x 50, $7.99), the Crux Guild Robusto Extra (5 1/4 x 54, $9.50), the Crux Guild Toro (6 x 50, $8.99) and the box-pressed Crux Guild Toro Extra Marblehead (6 1/2 x 52, $9.99).
According to a press release, Guild will be one of three different lines that Crux Cigars will be releasing before the end of the year, and will be available starting in October. Company officials declined to comment about the other upcoming two blends.
