A Honduran puro, Eiroa cigars hail from the company's brand new El Aladino factory in Honduras. Each carefully crafted cigar pays tribute to the Eiroa family, a cigar brand with a legacy 100 years in the making. They come packed in unique lift-top boxes wrapped in a leather ribbon, which represents Christian Eiroa's grandfather and his habit for keeping cigars stashed at the foot of his bed in a trunk (that's old school). Each box and each cigar features the old Spanish saying, “Salud, Amor y Pesetas” which means, “Health, Love and Money.” His motto for a successful life.
Medium to full-bodied, Eiroa starts out with a hints of leather and pepper. The flavor is distinctive, with definite undertones of salty-sweetness. The second third begins to intensify with amplified character and flavor. The finish is just right, with helpings of cocoa, coffee, and cream clinging to the palate. Boasting an even draw, solid construction, and an incredibly unique taste, Eiroa fully honors the family name.
Eiroa by Christian Eiroa received a well-deserved 90-rating noting: "layering the palate with chewy, dense smoke redolent of spicy black pepper and wood."
Just smoked one of these at the B&M. This cigar should really have a 95+ rating. It is supremely good. Mine had no spice (to me) but really complex creamy flavors. Draw was pretty tight but flavors were fantastic. Would order a box however, these smokes are out of my price range (for box purchases.)
