Where are Criss Cross cigars made?
SX Brands is based out of Richmond, Virginia. All of its tobacco products are manufactured and packaged in the United States. Criss Cross cigars are made using a combination of Virginia and Burley tobacco, two of the most popular tobacco strains in the world. The two varieties blend well, since Virginia tobacco is sweet and mild, while Burley is low in sugar but generally has a stronger cocoa or earthy flavor, with the added benefit of a moderate to high nicotine level. This combination creates a balanced, flavorful cigar with just the right nicotine "kick."
What do Criss Cross cigars taste like?
Criss Cross cigars combine Burley and Virginia tobacco strains. Burley has been described as tasting nutty, earthy or slightly chocolaty by itself. Virginia tobacco has a sweet, citrus-like taste, although this can vary depending on the type of curing used in processing the plant. Together, the two strains produce a cigar with a light and balanced flavor and a smooth draw. Aside from light, full-flavored and menthol tobacco cigars, our product line also includes filtered cigars infused with vanilla, grape or cherry flavoring to create an aromatic and richly-flavored cigar to match your personal taste.
Are Criss Cross cigars sweet?
Consumers who have tried Criss Cross cigars note that they have a sweet, rich flavor and a pleasant, "smooth" aroma. Virginia tobacco is high in sugar, giving our filtered cigars a naturally sweet taste that is subdued and balanced by the more earthy Burley strain. Our vanilla, cherry and grape flavored cigars have a sweeter, but not "sickly sweet," taste that comes from the layering of artificial and natural flavors and the alkaline structure of the Burley strain that allows flavors to absorb into the tobacco more effectively.
Criss Cross filtered cigars are an affordable, convenient alternative to standard cigars. They are prepped and sized like a traditional pack of cigarettes, with the rich, full flavor and smooth draw of a cigar. Find your favorite style and flavor of Criss Cross filtered cigar!
