The Eiroa cigar is brought to us by the man with the same name Christian Eiroa. The new Eiroa is a Honduran puro that is produced in the their new factory in Honduras.

Smoking Conditions: Evening, approximately 72 degrees.

Looks: The Eiroa features a dark brown Honduran wrapper leaf that has very minimal veining. The wrapper leaf is quite toothy and has a nice oily sheen to it. The cigar is finished off on top with a triple cap. The band is silver, red, and black and is somewhat reminiscent of what I consider traditional cigar bands.   The band reads, “EIROA” in the center surrounded by, “SALUD AMOR PESETAS.” Which I hear translates into, “Health, Love, and Money.” Around that reads, “Tradicion Tabacalera” on the top and, “Calidad Superior” below. The sides read, “Hecho 2013” and “Desde 1916.”

Pre-Light: This cigar has a pre-light aroma of earth and wood, pre-light taste is that of cocoa.

Taste: Taste wise this stick surprised me. The primary flavor notes that I got were that of cocoa and rich earth. The back end of the puff did display some pepper notes on the tongue. Overall the flavor profile of this stick was consistent and enjoyable.

Strength: Medium to light full.

Burn: After getting the cigar initially lit and correcting some uneven start burns, the remainder of the cigar burned even with a plentiful amount of white smoke.

Buy it?   I mentioned above in the taste category that I was surprised by this stick. Pleasantly surprised is the correct way to put it. I had found that my experience with the CLE sticks is that they were hit or miss for me personally. Not because of construction or quality, just on what I liked. This cigar is a definite win in the, “what I like” to smoke category. I will most likely always have a few of these on hand.
