Cigar Chat: Eiroa Natural & Eiroa Maduro

Brandon Hayes:
I'm here today with Scott and we're here to talk about two of our favorite Eiroa cigars. For those of you who don't know who Christian Eiroa is-

Scott:
You should.

Brandon Hayes:
Yeah. He grows some of the best Carajos in the world, in my opinion. I think most people's opinion. But probably the cigar that put him back on the map for the second time, after he sold Camacho, was the Eiroa by Christian Eiroa. This is a fantastic medium bodied Carajos cigar, really just showing off the quality of the tobacco that they grow in Honduras. A lot of people talk about not liking Honduran tobacco, that's because they haven't had the right Carajos. This tobacco is absolutely fantastic. It's a nice medium bodied cigar, very easy to smoke, very full flavor, medium in strength, creamy, nutty, earthy, no spice to it at all. Just a really elegant cigar. I think when you talk premium cigars, if you're not talking to Eiroa cigars, you're missing something.

Brandon Hayes:
Tell us about what you've got.

Scott:
I kind of have the ying to the yang. We've got the Maduro version of the Eiroa. This is going to be a Maduro that is filler, binder and wrapper actually. When I get a guy that is asking me for a Maduro cigar, I go, "Let's go try something that you might have not had before." This is going to really jump into that Maduro aspect that I think you're missing in a lot of cigars. With his blend on this, I get more of a cocoa, some richness. It's not a heavy, heavy, full body cigar in strength. Medium, medium plus. Like I said, it's balanced. It's got that cocoa smooth rich sweetness. Great, great follow-up to the original Eiroa right there.

Brandon Hayes:
Yeah. This is the before dinner and that's the after dinner.

Scott:
Absolutely.

Brandon Hayes:
Awesome.
