Christian Eiroa, Christian Luis Eiroa, CLE, CLE Signature Series, Eiroa by Christian Eiroa, Honduran, Honduran Corojo, HondurasFirst time with the CLE Signature Series Cigar today…

At first puff through a very loose and open draw, I receive volumes of light airy smoke with tobacco flavors that seem familiar with a retrohale that is respectable.

Oh my, it’s only been 20-minutes and I’m at the second third already. Let’s nickname this cigar “Zippy”

And just like that, I’m at the last third. Nothing much to report except that I’m enjoying the voluminous billowing smoke… fun blowing this around.

Now that things have progressed to the end, I’m getting a dark coffee note that I can identify. Any more flavors other than that and I’m not so sure… maybe I was too entertained by how smoky this cigar was. It was pleasant to smoke, but the flavors for me were one-dimensional.

I’ve got one more of these that I think I’ll let rest for a while to see if anything improves.

Until next time.
