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, it's very much in line with my Art Deco collecting. The wrapper is a somewhat veiny, medium brown, with great construction. And the aroma has a very interesting floral note. The cold draw has a mild floral flavor with some wood.

The pointed tip of the Crux Ninfamaniac lights easily and the burn starts off perfectly. I can taste the sweet, floral notes from the cold draw and they are accompanied by a little sweet, cedar spice. It's a very unique flavor, that I don't believe I have ever had before, and it's also creamy. The burn is razor sharp, producing a clean white ash.
The Ninfamaniac's second third continues with a very interesting flavor profile, and sees the introduction of a creamy, coffee. I am loving the flavors coming from this cigar! Along with some nice smoke production and an epic burn and ash...perfection.
The final third of the Ninfamaniac ramps up a notch and is a little stronger, with some smokey notes. It's very creamy, with a long finish. At one point the cedar really came to the forefront, along with a spicy tingle on my tongue.
Very complex cigar. I am sure that you would probably notice more and different flavor notes each time smoked. I know this review was fairly quick and to the point, but what else do I need to say? I was too entranced in the profile to write much more. This is a must try and I hope to get my hands on the Dark version soon.
96 - Box Buy - I definitely need a box of these...
