Country of Origin: Honduras (El Aladino)
Robusto: 50 x 5
2017 Cigar Coop Cigar of the Year – EIROA The First 20 Years Colorado 50 x 5 by C.L.E. Cigar Company.
Fellow cigar aficionado Cigar Coop has named the EIROA The First 20 Years Colorado as its cigar of the year for 2017.
The Honduran cigar is an instant classic, you won’t hear us arguing against that one. It’s the fourth blend under C.L.E.’s EIROA brand and it’s making a major impact.
This line celebrates Christian Eiroa’s first 20 years in the tobacco business and it was important to stay true to the brand’s traditions. That means a Colorado wrapper, reddish in hue, and a Honduran puro blend from the Eiroa tobacco farms and drying rooms.
This is a real home-grown, hand-crafted effort and it’s good to see this traditional approach getting the nod over more fashionable international blends.
There are four box-pressed sizes in the EIROA First 20 Years Colorado line. It was the 50 x 5 Robusto size that really stood out in this line.
The EIROA First 20 Years Colorado becomes the second Honduran cigar to win the Cigar Coop Cigar of the Year Award. It is also the first Honduran puro to capture the #1 Cigar of the Year.
So what’s the unique appeal? It’s a medium strength and medium body cigar, but its an absolute explosion of flavors. You’ll taste real tobacco, spice, cedarwood, earth and a strong note of pepper. It is a blend that just gets better with age.
