Crux Nimfamaniac Dark
Right off the bat, this cigar grabbed my attention. 7 x 33 is a unique size, and I greatly underestimated it.
Paired with a Firestone Brewing Sucuba 2018
Great construction and perfect draw!
Dry cocoa, a buttery caramel note, light pepper zing on the finish. Shifts to a great amount of sweetness, earthy cocoa, maybe some dark fruit? (could be the beer)
Powdery cocoa, black pepper, creamy milk chocolate, great burn line, pepper on retrohale, smoky woodsy note.
The final third starts off with more pepper on the finish, then transitions to an earthy peppery cocoa.
Here’s the surprising part for me, a big blast of strength! Very enjoyable twist.
The blend continues to show off its earthy peppery sweet woodsy note.
This cigar has a great amount of strength for the size, and it is definitely a great 30 – 45 minute smoke. Hands down the final third was my favorite. For my preference I would want to try a 38 or 42 ring gauge, just to see what would happen.
Score = 88
Firestone Brewing Sucuba –
Smooth & Silky
Immense amount of dark fruit, floral and sweet.
The sweetness of this beer pairs very well with this cigar.
