CRUX du CONNOISSEUR | BLIND MAN'S PUFF
"The draw was just perfect which is great for a cigar this size." "Construction was great. Cigar burned awesome, held good ash." "I never thought there was so much complexity that could be found in a lancero vitola."

CRUX GUILDCIGAR COOP
"The Guild is a cigar that fired on all cylinders – flavor, complexity, and construction. Overall, given it’s a stronger cigar, it’s one I would probably steer to a more experienced cigar enthusiast. As for myself, this is a cigar I would smoke again – and it’s worthy of a box purchase."

CRUX du CONNOISSEUR #2 - ReduxCIGAR COOP
"The three IPCPR 2015 releases for Crux Cigars might just be remembered as one of the cigar industry’s best – and the Crux du Connoisseur might just be the valedictorian."

CRUX LIMITADA PB5 | SETH'S HUMIDOR/CIGAR FEDERATION
"The PB5 is a cigar that shows excellent construction and a great amount of smoke production as well. It smokes perfectly from beginning to finish, and the palate does not feel like it just received a beating when done."

CRUX du CONNOISSEUR #2 | CIGAR COOP
"When it comes to the Crux du Connoisseur No. 2, one thing was quite clear to me – this is a blend that was really made for the 38 ring gauge format. The Crux du Connoisseur No. 2 delivers great flavor, has a nice amount of complexity, and excellent construction."

CRUX du CONNOISSEUR #2 | STOGIE PRESS
"I can say for sure, Crux du Connoisseur will make the Stogie Press Top 25 this year. They are truly a work of art, pride, and passion. We talked about Crux last year, but this year all I can say is wow! You don’t have to exhaust your cigar budget or break US law to enjoy a Connoisseur’s cigar, you just have to grab a Crux du Connoisseur."

CRUX CLASSIC MABLEHEAD TORO | CIGAR FEDERATION
"I need more Crux in my life, and look forward to getting a Bull and Bear to review next, as we already covered the Ninfa’s and Passport on Cigar Federation. What I will tell you, is smoking through the samples I had, Crux has shown me they have the ability to blend quality cigars with experienced palates that are full flavored and complex. At this point, I plan on buying 5-10 of all of them..."

CRUX BULL & BEAR 6 x 60 MARBLEHEAD | CIGAR & COFFEE
"Here's a stick that's a bit unique, the Bull & Bear Marblehead By Crux Cigars. The Crux Marblehead™ cigars, feature a tapered and rounded cap influenced by the classic Cuban 109. This is the final Crux Cigar from last months CigarTrain's cigar of the month club package. To be honest, I'm sad it's the last...."

CRUX BULL & BEAR ROBUSTO EXTRA | BLIND MAN'S PUFF
"Overall, a really nice experience. I’m anxiously awaiting the reveal on this one. I would certainly be interested in picking up at least a handful of these to enjoy, and would probably consider a box purchase if the next few went as well as this one did."

CRUX BULL & BEAR ROBUSTO EXTRA | CIGAR FEDERATION
"The Crux Bull & Bear was an enjoyable cigar, and I particularly thought the first third was a blockbuster. It has all the ingredients for something amazing, and I think if the first third had carried through I would have rated it well into the 90s. The price on the robust extra is affordable for almost everyone. I wouldn’t hesitate to grab a 5-pack..."

CRUX NINFAMANIAC | CIGAR & COFFEE
"Construction of this Cuban Ninfa style cigar was like everything I've seen so far from Crux Cigars, flat-out, top-of-the-line. The cigar is covered in an oily, Colorado colored, Habano Jalapa wrapper that's basically seamless and vein free. It's well packed full length, plus the cap and foot are both tapered. All this makes the Ninfamaniac one good looking cigar..."

CRUX PASSPORT CORONA | CIGAR DOJO
"Would I smoke this cigar again? No question about it. As I said, I smoked four for this review – each one as good as the last. Not only is the Crux Passport “a plane ticket to Nicaragua” for the senses, but at the under-$10 price point, it’s a vacation for your wallet too! I highly encourage everyone to search out this cigar and give it smoke –

I think you’ll be pleased..."

CRUX NINFAMANIAC | STICKS2ASH
"This is a truly a one of a kind cigar! Remarkable for what it is. While I did enjoy both blends, I did find myself liking the dark blend a bit more as it had more body and thicker, more full flavors of espresso. Its without a doubt a cigar you should give a try as its price point is spot on and is truly a beautiful designed and cool looking cigar."

CRUX PASSPORT | STICKS2ASH
"This is without a doubt my favorite of the three blends! (Skeeterz, Ninfamaniac, Passport) Box worthy no doubt... This cigar meets and exceeds my preferred wheelhouse in desired cigars with flavor, body and quality! Outstanding..."

CRUX NINFAMANIAC | CIGAR FEDERATION
"The Crux Cigars Ninfamaniac has had my attention since first sight. The it's a Lancero size, but in a figurado shape. Not to mention a band that is simply awesome! Love the nude fairy, on the brown background. But of course I would…"

CRUX PASSPORT | CASAS FUMANDO
"While I did not find the Crux Passport overly complex, I never found myself bored with the cigar. The cedar, woodsy flavor held strong throughout, accompanied by more subtle citrus and honey notes. The Passport does not lack in the spice department either…"

CRUX PASSPORTLEAF ENTHUSIAST
"This is a great medium to full bodied cigar that would appeal to all ranges of cigar smokers, novice to veteran…"

CRUX PASSPORT | CIGAR COOP
"If the Passport is any measure of how successful this will be, it appears the duo is heading in the right direction.  This was an enjoyable and flavorful smoke with excellent construction.  The blend seemed to shine in the corona size.  Finally, my gut tells me the aging potential will make this blend even better..."

CRUX PASSPORT | CIGAR FEDERATION
"The construction on the Crux Passport Half Corona proved to be at least as good as the first impression led me to believe. Perfect. And the small size left nothing out, incorporating many flavors, that were always full. I kept getting an occasional sweet, fruity note that was proving hard to pin down..."

CRUX SKEETERZ | CASAS FUMANDO
"This is another great cigar from the guys over at Crux. While I don’t think it’s as flavorful or complex as the Ninfamaniac series, at $2.99 a stick it’s pretty hard to turn down. Plus, it serves a different purpose by being such a quick smoke. I could totally see myself buying a big batch of these…"

CRUX NINFAMANIAC DARK | CASAS FUMANDO
"The differences between the Ninfamaniac and the Ninfamaniac Dark are pretty evident. The Ninfamaniac had some great floral and citrus notes that the Dark did not have, while the Dark carries a lot of sweetness and berry that the natural version did not. Both carried a great amount of flavor…"

CRUX NINFAMANIAC | HALFWHEEL
“Given the small margin for error when it comes to producing a cigar with such a thin ring gauge, the first thing that scores points for the Ninfamaniac is how great the construction was, with not a single problem to be found. Flavor wise, the blend is balanced and while not the most complex I’ve ever had, shows moments of near brillance..."

CRUX SKEETERZ | HALFWHEEL
"The size is ideal for a lunch break, an evening walk, or any other situation that you find yourself with a shorter time to smoke.  While a 32 ring gauge cigar might be too small for some, it's right down my alley and I really enjoyed it. These will be going into my rotation of short smokes and I can easily suggest picking some up to try for yourself."
