CLE Chele 646 is #14 of Cigar Journal’s Top 25 of 2016

cj_top25_badge_2016_no14Christian Eiroa usually produces his cigars in Honduras, but the Chele is one of the first CLE cigars to be produced in Nicaragua. Chele means “pale” or “blond” in Latin America and refers to the Connecticut wrapper that gives the cigar its light hue. CLE Chele is available in four formats, the 660 (Gordo), the 652 (Torpedo), 550 (Robusto) and the cigar we feature here, the exceptionally subtle and mild 646, a Corona. All vitolas are boxpressed.

Tasting notes: “At first, floral aromas unfold, underscored by spice and white pepper, then also leathery aromas and eucalyptus freshness. The cigar has a fine sourness, a delicate salty note, and is extremely creamy. Mild.”
