CLE Corojo 11/18

Medium bunch, mostly smooth wrapper with straight-up tobacco aromas from the wrapper and foot. A clean xikar cut delivers a good draw with some interesting flavors.

Pleasantly peppery from the start with hints of both black and white pepper notes balanced fairly well. The smoke is cool and smooth. I am expecting another great cigar from Christian Eiroa.



The burn is mostly even with a firm medium grey ash. The flavor profile so far features the Corojo wrapper with somewhat sweet peppery notes; quite the enjoyable blend. As with so many other CLE cigars the construction is top notch.

At about 2/3 the white pepper notes are outpacing the black and the well aged tobacco continues to provide a solid base with lots of smoke to keep things interesting.



At about half way cedar notes begin to appear, adding to the complexity of the smoke and adding to the enjoyment. This is a nice strong cigar without having much ligero in the bunch. The retrohale of the cigar is very pleasant.

Nearing 2/3 the pepper, cedar and deep tobacco notes continue to blend for a nice spicy finish that is wonderful on the tongue. The cigar is still smoking very smooth and cool.



Approaching the final inch the cigar has begun to heat up a bit, but small purges keep it smokable, although I did have to set it down at one inch to avoid finger burn. A bit of nuttiness began to develop right before I put it down.



This is a very pleasant complex cigar that fits right in with the CLE brand and as such earns an 8.5/10. Joe Bob says check it out.
