Eiroa Prensado

Drew Estate

In 2013, CLE released two new cigars:  CLE Plus and the Eiroa.  I first tried the Eiroa over the winner at the Cigar Lounge of Starkville in Starkville, MS.  They had two size available at the time so I bought both to try out.  While hanging out there, I first smoked the the Eiroa Prensado.  It is such a great size.  Its a small boxed press Rothschild size cigar that just looks like it would be a nice smoke.  The Eiroa is an all Honduran puro and comes in 4 sizes:

Sizes

  • Prensado:  4 x 48
  • Robusto: 5 x 50
  • Toro:  6 x 54
  • Sixty: 6 x 60

Blend

  • Wrapper:  Honduran
  • Binder:  Honduran
  • Filler:  Honduran

I have since smoked the robusto and toro, but I think the Prensado is the jewel of the line.  It has well balanced flavors and great construction.  I get a little more sweetness and coffee notes in the Prensado then I do the other, larger ring gauge vitolas.  This is great for me since coffee is one of my favorite notes in a cigar and I hate large ring gauges.  They come in a box of 10 and retails for about $9.00 a cigar.  For me, its a no brainer.  Box worthy.
