Brandon’s Thoughts: Headed into the PCA trade show there wasn’t many cigars I was more excited to try than the The C.L.E. Signature THT-EKE. Christian Eiroa’s cigars speak to me in a way that not many other cigars do. I intentionally made CLE a first stop of the day so that I could give the cigar a try with a clean pallet. The C.L.E. Signature THT-EKE is the first time Christian Eiroa has ever used a Cameroon wrapper on one of his cigars. This Cameroon is unique in the fact that it is Honduran grown. The cigar smokes medium strength and is full flavor. At first light, you notice a heavy cedar flavor in combination with some nutty flavors that you would expect from Eiroa’s Corojo tobacco. As you get into the second third of the cigar, you start to notice it builds in both intensity and sweetness. The aroma of the cigar is similar to what you would expect from a vanilla bean coffee when it is brewing. It finishes with a perfect burn line and clean on the pallet - as you would expect from a super premium cigar. The overall profile is more what I would expect from CLE and less like what I would expect from a Cameroon wrapped cigar - but I am not complaining. For me, this cigar definitely deserves a try and lives up to its expectation and price point.

Another fantastic CLE cigar. 5 years of aging lends a smoothness to the savory Cameroon leaf.
