C.L.E. Updates Core Line Packaging at PCA 2024

March 27, 2024 By Matthew Tabacco

C.L.E. Cigar Company presented updated packaging for the C.L.E. core line of cigars at the 2024 PCA Trade Show this past weekend. Inspired by Cuban cigars of yesteryear, founder of C.L.E. Cigar Company Christian Eiroa felt was time for the packaging to match the quality of the blends. The C.L.E. core line includes the C.L.E. Connecticut, Corojo, and Habano.

Christian Eiroa, was inspired to make the change when hosting a C.L.E. event at the highly regarded The House of Grauer in Geneva, Switzerland. The House of Grauer is one of the premier cigar lounges in the World. The classic Cuban design of the lounge inspired Chrisitan; a change had to be made.

The C.L.E. core line of cigars is now presented in a “half wheel” format, within redesigned wooden boxes. The new bands and tissue paper that adorn the cigars evoke a sense of nostalgia.

Christian Eiroa said:” The C.L.E. core line blends are cigars that we are immensely proud of, but I never felt the packaging presented the cigars in the right light. We decided to bring it back to basics, to another time.”

The C.L.E. core lines come in twenty-five count boxes and in four vitolas.
