EIROA CBT Maduro by CLE Cigar Company

Yesterday, I was gifted a box-pressed Eiroa CBT (Capa Banda Tripa) Maduro, a Honduran Maduro Puro from Sumo Ralph. This was a first for me and a wonderful concept for a cigar, all Maduro. I’m in.

This is a very enjoyable cigar I had during my conversation with Sumo Ralph. I will be sampling more of the CLE line of cigars soon since they just arrived at Sellwood Cigar recently.

The Eiroa Maduro was a great cigar with immediate baking spice flavors (clove?) and deep rich dry cocoa and earth brought me into the zone with this box pressed cigar. The draw and smoke were perfectly satisfying.

“… the CBT portion of the name came from the words Capa, Banda, Tripa—that translates into wrapper, binder, filler. The company says it uses leaves only from the upper primings for the entity of the cigar in order to create an old-school style Maduro. ” – Halfwheel)
