C.L.E. Cigar Company has announced it is shipping its 2023 release for the Tobacconists Association of America (TAA) Exclusive Series, the Eiroa Dark 11/18.
The Eiroa Dark was first released in 2019. The cigar gets its name from the dark shade of the wrapper it has. The 11/18 is a signature vitola of C.L.E. President Christian Eiroa. The vitola is a 48 x 52 x 48 x 6 figurado that is thicker in the middle and tapered toward the ends. Blendwise, the Eiroa Dark features 100% Authentic Corojo grown on the Eiroa family farms in Honduras.
A total of 500 20-count boxes have been produced. Pricing is set at $16.70 per cigar.
“It is a little-known fact that the 11/18 is in dedication to my mother as it represents her birth date (November 18). The Eiroa Dark is one of my favorite blends to come out of the C.L.E. Cigar Factory, due it being made with only Honduran Corojo tobacco. My hope is that the public enjoys this blend in this long overdue 11/18 size,” commented Christian Eiroa in a press release.
