The CLE Corojo Corona Gorda is one of the numerous lines produced by C.L.E. Cigar Company. For each line, there are different formats proposed. For the Corojo line (which is characterized by the use of wrapper leaf obtained from Corojo seed) there are eight formats, including this corona gorda. The cigar is a Honduran puro.
The cigars are offered to the public in boxes of 25 units, with the cigars stacked in layers (and not in bunches).
At sight, the cigar is covered by tissue paper which identifies the line (also taken from the ring) which covers 3/4 of the length of the product. Once removed you can appreciate a bright band of Colorado hues with brown reflections. It is quite smooth to the touch, very attractive, with very little pronounced grain. The construction is more than good and filling and draft appear regular.

CLE Corojo Corona Gorda: a marked note of aged wood is clearly perceptible in the cold draw, enriched by notes of spices and walnut.
Overall, the CLE Corojo Corona Gorda is a product that is simple to use, but not trivial. The aromatic components are present and well distributed throughout the smoke. The strength is never greater than the intensity of the aromas and, indeed, a more sustained strength would not have hurt (but it would enter the field of personal liking). Too bad for a final third that seems to contract in the walnut-wood combination.
