EIROA Jamastran by EIROA Cigars is named in commemoration of the Jamastran Valley of Honduras—the location where the Eiroa family (among others) has grown its world-renowned Corojo-seed tobacco since the 1980s. It is here that Eiroa family patriarch, Julio, has operated his Eiroa Tobacco Farm, which is known for growing original Corojo (as opposed to the modern Corojo '99 hybrid used by nearly all other farms).
With EIROA Jamastran, owner Christian Eiroa (son of Julio Eiroa) has highlighted these Honduran Corojo tobaccos, with the leaves making up every portion of the blend. The cigars are topped with a select, high-priming wrapper from these Corojo plants, making for an intense experience. The final product is offered in two sizes at launch: 11/18 (a signature figurado size for the Eiroa family) and robusto. With much of the project recalling the family's great history, the boxes follow suit, being crafted in unique trapezoid shapes (another attribute that the family has become known for). Christian Eiroa asserts that the shape helps to keep the cigar in better condition over the years, being ideal for collectors and long-term agers.
As with all cigars in the EIROA portfolio, smokers can expect to find a fine-tuned experience for the seasoned palate. With EIROA Jamastran, the cigars are quite nostalgic to those familiar with the family's work over the years (not unlike Camacho cigars of old). Expect a bold profile, showing a medium-plus to full body and robust flavors of charred oak, sourdough bread, cinnamon, molasses, fresh soil, and blackened steak.
