The Eiroa family purchased Camacho cigars in 1995, giving Christian Eiroa his start in the industry. Under the family’s guidance, Camacho cigars became a juggernaut and became world famous for their stout and potent lineup of cigars. Now with his new brand CLE cigars, formed after Camacho was sold to Davidoff, Christian is celebrating his 2 decades in the cigar industry with a special release, Eiroa the First 20 Years.
Hailing from Honduras, Eiroa the First 20 Years is a box-pressed Honduran puro containing a special type of tobacco in the binder and filler that hasn’t been used in a cigar in over 50 years. With a strength and flavor profile that will have you smacking your lips with fond memories of great Camacho blends of the past, Eiroa the First 20 Years will captivate you from first light. Full-bodied and packed with a full boat of pleasing flavors, expect nuances of dark chocolate, espresso, baking spices, nuts, earth, and leather to provide a well-balanced and complex experience. Give this stellar blend a try and enjoy the fruits of a master-blender at his best.
Neatly pressed with two sharp corners and two softer edges, this cigar is sweet and cedary up front with some lingering tanginess and spice. A straightforward smoke.
