Christian finished up a graduate degree in 1995 before joining his father in Honduras, which was also the place of his birth and upbringing. To Christian, the cigar business was second nature. Being president of Caribe Imported Cigars at 26 and blended the Camacho Corojo at 27 drives this point home. Either the guy’s a natural, or he soaked up cigar knowledge growing up in the industry, or most likely some combination of both. It doesn’t always have to be nature or nurture. Often, it’s somewhere in between.
After serving as the longtime president of Camacho and then staying on to ensure a smooth transition after Davidoff acquired the company, many fans of Christian Eiroa blends weren’t sure if he could keep up the same quality and consistency with his own company, CLE. CLE Cuarenta cigars are but one example of the answer being in the affirmative.
The “cuarenta” in CLE Cuarenta cigars means forty, as these sticks commemorate Christian’s 40th birthday. And you know they say 40 is the new 20, so it looks like we all just got some time back.
Aged Honduran long-fillers and a Habano wrapper work together to deliver a medium-strength, complex yet smooth smoke filled with flavors of coffee bean, cedar, and spice.
