CLE 2013 Plus Aged 7 years
First thing you need to know is the Eiroa family was the first family to grow Cuban seed Corojo tobacco outside of Cuba and from what I understand, the first tobacco farm that grew tobacco for cigars outside of Cuba. This goes back to around 1920. We will interview Christian Eiroa soon and get the breakdown. The Eiroa family owned Camacho cigars before selling to Davidoff in 2008. From what I’m told there was a non-compete agreement of 5 years that needed to be fulfilled until re-entering the cigar industry. That brings us to 2013. The Eiroa family open a new factory called Alladino (you have most likely heard of that brand named after the factory). This is one of two first blends they re-entered the market with. It sold for about a year before legal issues found it sitting in Honduras unable to be sold. This cigar you hold in your hand has been waiting to meet you. It’s been in a box lined with cedar in an aging room in Honduras for 7 years. And here it is. Right here in your hands. The thing to know about Honduran Corojo tobacco is it is the original Habano wrapper. Cuba, during the 60’s saw a blue mold plague that wiped out crops and caused them to genetically modify or hybrid their tobacco seeds. But this is from the original seed. Isn’t that amazing? Damn I love cigars and I love finding you stuff like this even more. This blend was to be their full flavored American market stick so let’s check it out. The blend is 100% Honduran Corojo tobacco.
