Christian Eiroa usually produces his cigars in Honduras, but the Chele is one of the first CLE cigars to be rolled in Nicaragua. Chele means “pale” or “blond” in Latin America and refers to the Connecticut wrapper that gives the cigar its light hue.
The two new lines are the first C.L.E. cigars that were made in Nicaragua. Christian Eiroa, founder of the company, stated that rolling cigars in Nicaragua would open up new possibilities for the company.
C.L.E. Cigars redesigned the appearance of their Classic and CBT Maduro lines resembling the look of their recently released First 20 Years cigars. Apparently the cigars shipped to retailers this week, already feature the new design.
