Late in 2018, Crux Cigars announced a series of three line extensions known as the Short Salomone Series. This cigar is a limited production line extension that would add a 6” x 54 Short Salomone vitola to three of Crux Cigars’ lines: Crux Guild, Crux Epicure, and Crux Limitada.
Since its launch in 2014, most of the Crux’s releases mostly parejo (rounded) shaped cigars, so the Short Salomone is a little bit of a change. While Guild and Epicure are regular production lines, as the name indicates the Limitada line is Crux’s limited production line.
The Crux Limitada Short Salomone is one of the smaller productions offered in the Limitada line as it was limited to 300 ten-count boxes or 3,000 sticks.
Year 2015 is the first time Crux launched Limitada lines, that is Crux Limitada PB5. Since then the Limitada line has expanded to five sizes. At 2016 the second vitola released with Crux Limitada exclusively for IPCPR show, later on called as the Show, a box-pressed Robusto shape.
Year 2018, Crux announced three additional sizes and the cigars launched in 2019. This include Crux Limitada RedLine (Box-pressed Toro), Crux Limitada Gunner (Corona Gorda), and Crux Limitada Short Salomone.
Crux Limitada cigars series has a common denominator in that it uses a Nicaraguan Enganoso wrapper. Crux has decided to use it exclusively for Limitada series that is why the products are limited.
For the filler so far there is no any information – a rumor said that they used five different tobacco leaves, and the binder it used Connecticut Broadleaf. The cigars produced at the Plasencia factory in Estelí, Nicaragua.
