At first, floral aromas unfold, underscored by spice and white pepper, then also leathery aromas and eucalyptus freshness. The cigar has a fine sourness, a delicate salty note, and is extremely creamy. Mild.
Christian Eiroa, the longtime president of Camacho Cigars, has returned to the cigar business with the formation of CLE Cigar Co. His long-term plan calls for several cigar brands made in various countries.
CLE stands for Eiroa’s initials (his middle name is Luís) and the first cigar to come from his new venture will be the CLE. A small-production brand, CLE will be rolled in a familiar spot for Eiroa, the Tabacos Ranchos Jamastran factory in Honduras where Camacho cigars are made. (Eiroa owns the factory with his father and sold the Camacho Brand to the Davidoff group in 2008)
