CLE Cuarenta 2012 (robusto)

Life has been busy lately, so I'll sneak in this quick review.  I haven't been smoking many Camacho cigars lately.  Jason from Cigars & More recommended that I sample a CLE, made by Christian Eiroa (formerly the President of Camacho Cigars).  CLE are his initials, with Luis being his middle name.

Apparently, the tobaccos used in this line are still somewhat of a mystery. 

1/3: The first few puffs yielded scents of cedar and cinnamon. Mild and smooth to begin, with some sweetness being evident partway through the 1st third.

2/3: The Cuarenta has increased in strength and complexity.  It is more on the medium side, and it has a meaty mouthfeel to it.

3/3: Same meatiness is recognized in the final third.  I also picked up a little hint of hazelnut.

Decent smoke, but it had nothing to really make me excited to try another.
