Nothing really stands out about the appearance of the CLE Corojo 2012, other than its medium brown wrapper that has just a tinge of oil.  Notice I didn’t call the cigar ugly, because it’s anything but that.  There’s just not a lot of frills to look at.  A few small veins are visible, and the cigar feels firm to the touch.  A simple band resides near the head, and it has the CLE name stamped on it in attractive metallic lettering. Before lighting the Corojo 2012, it has an earthy scent and a cold taste of mild tobacco.

Once lit, the Corojo 2012 is a solid performer.  The burn is even and requires just a couple of minor touch-ups.  It has a good draw and produces a solid gray ash.  Smoking time is about 90 minutes.

The flavors experienced while smoking the CLE Corojo 2012 Robusto are enough to keep one interested.  At first some pepper is noticeable, along with some cedar.  Cinnamon also makes an appearance in the first third.  This blend of flavors continues into the second third, where sweet notes also pop into the picture.  The final third is quite interesting, with citrus, cream, and wood joining together for a very nice ending.

I was impressed by the CLE Corojo 2012 Robusto.  This isn’t much of a surprise considering Christian Eiroa is the man behind the brand, but still, it exceeded my expectations.  The construction was top notch, as was the burn.  And the flavor profile was complex enough to keep me from getting bored during the hour and a half smoking time.  A single costs about $6.  At that price point, you have a great value here.  You can also find the Corojo 2012 in packs of five or boxes of 25.  I’d at least splurge on a five pack to keep handy around the house.

The CLE Corojo 2012 receives a rating of 3.75 out of 4 stars.
