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.

Eiroa The First 20 Years Colorado

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.

I strive to capture the essence of a cigar and the people behind them in my work – every cigar you light up is the culmination of the work of countless people and often represents generations of struggle and stories. For me, it’s about so much more than the cigar – it’s about the story behind it, the experience of enjoying the work of artisans and the way that a good cigar can bring people together. In addition to my work with halfwheel, I’m the public address announcer for the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks during spring training, as well as for the Salt River Rafters of the Arizona Fall League, the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury and the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
