[Video] A pure, eye-opening experience
The word "Prieto" is slang for dark. And dark is a rather good description of the CLE Prieto Cigars. Both the medium to full-bodied flavor of this stick and the beautiful exterior evoke the word gloriously. The first glimpse of darkness you get upon opening a box of CLE Prieto cigars is the dark hued Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper. This classic upscale wrapper is such a deep brown that it almost appears to be black at first glance, especially set against the white CLE Prieto label.
The other way that CLE Prieto Cigars live up to their name is with the bold flavor created by a mix of Nicaraguan tobacco. These flavors include coffee, chocolate, earthiness, and pepper, all of which are dark ingredients. In many ways, smoking this cigar has the same feeling as taking your coffee black. And don't doubt for a second that this isn't completely intended. Christian Eiroa, the designer of this cigar, intends for it to feel like a pure, eye-opening experience. The complex flavor of this beast lasts almost throughout the entire burn, which is surprisingly smooth. Only near the very end does it let up at all, rewarding your effort with a sweet nuttiness in the last few moments.
If you are looking for purity and quality, look no further than the CLE Prieto.
