CLE Corojo cigars are made in Honduras by Christian Eiroa, best known for the Camacho and Baccarat brands, which he sold in 2008. Christian brings a renewed enthusiasm to cigars with CLE, inspired by one single question: What would you do if you were able to do it all over again? The cigars are handmade in Honduras using a blend of all-Honduran tobaccos, including 100% authentic Corojo seed wrappers. The cigars are medium to full in body and strength, with a rich and complex taste.
This medium bodied corona latest 1 1/2 hours! How is that possible from such a small cigar. I think this is my new favorite, and size. Not exceedingly peppery, but enough corojo spice, and blend of flavors to make this a delicious cigar from beginning to end. One of those candidates for the cigar needle thingy to smoke it down until your lips are on fire. Highly recommended.
Being one that has rather simplistic views on what constitutes a good or great cigar, my review will lack expertise of finer points. I picked the CLE for its high rating, regardless of how many reviews. I found the construction solid and draw very good, the taste develops through the first third. Halfway mark at 40-50 minutes in and very balanced, at the hour and half mark it was coming to a close, I found that it was nearly done and I so wished it wasn t. Glad I bought a box. I started with a five pack and had the box on the way before I finished the second. Great burn!
