The Eiroas became a force in the cigar world with their Camacho brand, and especially through their use of Corojo. After Christian Eiroa sold Camacho to Davidoff, he decided to go back to his roots to produce blends that would allow him to flex his creative muscle. After a string of hits under his CLE brand, he brings a different approach with CLE Aladino.
When he brought out Camacho Corojo, Christian started the whole trend toward more flavorful and powerful cigars. Now his family wants to show that Corojo can be used in a mellower cigar, and that cigar is CLE Aladino.
The brainchild of patron Julio Eiroa, and made in his Las Lomas factory in the Jamastran Valley of Honduras., CLE Aladino is a Honduran puro, made in more traditional vitolas instead of today's more common massive ring gauges. The spice is a bit more subdued and the sweetness of the Corojo is on full display with this mild to medium-bodied delight.
