CLE. The initials of Christian Eiroa, the creator of the 94-rated Camacho brand. Christian has since returned to his roots, and is now operating the creation of a new breed of Honduran cigars. They’re called CLE, they’re delicious, and they come fully equipped with all that full-flavored goodness you’ve come to know and love, from the product of his creative talent.
CLE Corojo is a gem, period. Dressed in a gorgeous Corojo wrapper from Honduras – the wrapper that made Christian Eiroa and Camacho famous – each CLE Corojo cigar comes equipped with robust, significantly aged long-fillers grown in Honduras from Cuban seeds. The smoke is medium to full in body and teeming with hearty nuances. A warm, toasty, somewhat zesty array of flavors, including earth, pepper, wood, and espresso....complemented perfectly by a semi-sweet element on the long and soothing finish.
CLE Corojo received a 90-rating noting: "Earthy coffee notes lead to a sweet vanilla finish on this well-made, even-burning cigar. It is rolled with a bulging middle, tapered foot and three-seam cap."
I bought the CLE Corojo in 11/18 because I was looking for a more budget minded smoke that was cheaper then My Father Le Bijou 1922. And holy smokes it could easily be in the my father price range. The 11/18 is a great vitola because it exposes more of the filler flavors in the second third due to the step up in ring gauge. I will defiantly be buying a full box soon

Perfect balance of flavors. Pretty full bodied, but you could smoke it any time. Perfect draw, perfect ash, loads of smoke. Just fantastic!
