Fans of Christian Eiroa’s work will soon have a new cigar to sink their palates into, as CLE Cigar Co. announced today that the new Eiroa The First 20 Years Colorado line has begun widespread shipping to retailers.
For this project, Eiroa used Honduran corojo tobacco that had been aged for five years, undertaking a slower aging process to achieve the darker Colorado shade. He describes the new cigar as medium-bodied.
It is being offered in four box-pressed sizes, each presented in 20-count boxes and priced between $12.36-14.36 per cigar:
- Eiroa The First 20 Years Colorado 6 x 46
- Eiroa The First 20 Years Colorado 5 x 50
- Eiroa The First 20 Years Colorado 6 x 54
- Eiroa The First 20 Years Colorado 6 x 60
The new line is an extension to the original Eiroa The First 20 Years, also a Honduran puro that was released in Nov. 2015 in celebration of Christian Eiroa’s 20 years in the cigar industry. Eiroa started his journey by way of the Camacho brand and his father’s company, Caribe Imported Cigars, continuing it with his own CLE Cigar Co. which was launched in 2012 following the sale of Camacho to Davidoff in 2008.
The cigars are being produced at Eiroa’s El Aladino factory in Danlí, Honduras. A limited quantity had been available prior to today’s announcement.
