The blend builds upon the success of the Crux Epicure, but features a premium Mexican San Andres Maduro wrapper, with Nicaraguan binder and fillers.

The company notes that the bold blend results in ‘a medium-full flavored cigar with notes of rich mocha, cedar, earth, and black pepper that are bound together with an underlying creaminess‘.
