Punch Rare Corojo
Filler: Nicaragua, Dominican Republic, Honduras
Size: Double Corona
It is said that the Punch Rare Corojo is a “rare” cigar that is limited due to the type of the reddish Sumatra wrapper leaves that are grown in the mountains of Ecuador. The Punch Rare Corojo was so rare that I was only able to find it in every cigar shop, multiple cigarette shops, and quite a few bong shops (when dialed).
Punch Rare Corjo is also not really a “corojo” because the wrapper is from Ecuador.
* Marketing students take note *
Construction: Overall a beautiful dark reddish boxed press cigar. The Punch box pressed design feels absolutely great in your hands. Wrapper wise it was perfectly wrapped, not too night and not loose in the least. The wrapper stays together perfectly while smoking.
Draw: The draw on the cigar was perfect and the right amount of smoke came through with each puff.
Burn: Again – just right. The ash even stayed on for about 50 minutes.
Taste: The moment you go to light the cigar you get an immediate sense of the spicy wrapper. I was excited, I was ready for a super spicy cigar! I was quickly disappointed. From the moment it was lit the Punch Rare Corojo started giving me a very distinct, horrible after taste. The smoke it self provided no real taste, no complexity, nothing for the pallet. Just the horrible aftertaste that I hope no other smoker ever experiences.
