Eiroa The First 20 Years Colorado is the followup to 2016's introduction of Eiroa The First 20 Years by Eiroa Cigars. The First 20 Years project began in 2015 when Julio Eiroa (father of Christian Eiroa, owner of C.L.E. Cigar Co. and Eiroa Cigars) gifted Christian a special selection of tobacco from his renowned fields in Honduras. These tobaccos are said to be the finest ever harvested from the Eiroa's fields, and the gesture was made to celebrate Christian's first twenty years in the cigar industry.
The father-son collaboration has now been succeeded with a lighter, Colorado-Shade blend known as Eiroa The First 20 Years Colorado. This is billed as the most premium brand in the C.L.E. portfolio, featuring premium packaging (including the cigar's signature rice paper-wrapped foot) and box-pressed vitolas.
The blend is Honduran through and through, using the Eiroa's famed "Authentic Corojo" in the filler and binder; which has been aged to a minimum of four years before being rolled. The finishing touch is a pristine Honduran Colorado wrapper, a leaf that Christian Eiroa has long sought to bring to life. The cigars showcase a medium body and a supreme balance of strength and flavor; displaying deep flavors of graham crackers, citrus, sourdough, and various cabinet spices (cinnamon, black pepper, nutmeg, and much more).
