After the Camacho brand was sold in 2008, Christian returned into the tobacco industrywith the C.L.E. brand. The brand name stands for the initials of Christian Luis Eiroa. He is already the fourth generation to run the family business and has succeeded in making a comeback with exceptional products that live up to their name.
The outstanding feature of this line is the Corojo tobacco. From the 1950s to the 1980s, Cuba primarily used Corojo tobacco plants until Blue Mold struck the Caribbean island. Today only the Eiroa family in Honduras works with authentic Corojo seeds. A spicy tobacco is the result of scarce harvests. Tobaccos from Honduras that have matured for 2-3 years are used for the binder and filler that are then covered by a flawless Corojo wrapper.
In terms of taste, the C.L.E. Corojo impresses with warm, toasty and slightly spicy aromas, such as pepper and earthy coffee notes, and are rounded off by a pleasant sweetness.
