Punch Rare Corojo annual trip to retail shelves on February 1st. Over 20 years ago, a shortage of the wrapper leaf used caused the blend to remain off shelves for a few years, then, Punch Rare Corojo was reintroduced in 2001 and became one of the first cigars on the market to see an annual release.
"I didn't hate the flavors of this cigar and it preformed very well technically; I just found myself becoming bored of the flavor profile. It was also a little awkward to smoke due to its very large size and boxed pressed shape." -Alan (Eulogy)
The Punch Rare Corojo is coming back again, and this time the annual cigar is coming back in a size from the past. The Punch Rare Corojo 2022 will be an Arisocrat size, a 6.125 x 40/54 figurado.
