The Crux Skeeterz is a great looking little cigar. Construction appears to be spot on and the look and feel are just perfect. Pre light aroma has a kitchen spice aroma and a hint of cinnamon. There is also some manure and earthy tobacco notes. The cold draw is perfect and I get a strong, sweet, dark cherry note. I'm ready to get this cigar going!

The Crux Skeeterz starts out a winner! It has a fairly strong citrus note, with a relaxing cinnamon finish. The retrohale had a surprisingly strong bite to it and it just made the flavors POP! The flavors turn to that more of kitchen spices, but I couldn't pin down an exact note. The burn is precision and the ash holds on very well.
Entering the second third of the Skeeterz, the profile remains mostly similar to the first. Except, now I getting hint of cocoa on the finish. Suddenly, I also start to get hit with some tasty notes of coffee. Wow! This little guy sure packs in some flavors! Same as the beginning, the burn couldn't be any better and the ash is a beautiful ashy-grey with black charcoal lines. Holding on very well.
What happens in the final third? The Skeeterz just solidifies its place in my humidor. I am still getting some citrus, although it has finally faded back. The cinnamon, coffee and cocoa just keep mingling in my mouth, and then the Skeeterz actually throws in some more flavors. Although short-lived, there is a strong wood note, kind of an oak and cedar combo, which fades into a bready flavor.
Wow...this little cigar has so much going on for it's size. Not sure how they packed this many flavors into this small smoke, but they nailed it. Very enjoyable and complex flavor, flawless construction and burn, great presentation and a box presentation that I just want to display on my bar. What else could you want? Oh yea, they are only $2.99 each or $119.60 for a box of 40. Yea...#BuyNow. I do believe this is the best mini cigar I have ever had.
