OK, so today I have a Punch Rare Corojo to review for you. Here is a little background for those who are not familiar with the brand.
The original Punch cigar was created in Cuba around 1840 by a cigar manufacturer called Manuel Lopez. The cigar is named after Mr. Punch, the cantankerous half of the Punch and Judy puppet shows. It is currently produced in Honduras for Villazon Company and was first imported from there in 1969. Punch cigars are know for their bold, full-body taste.
So there you go, a little history lesson for you. Anyway back to the review.
The Rare Corojo that I’m reviewing is a box press Magnum 5.25 x 54, Ecuadoran Sumatra wrapper, Connecticut Broad leaf binder, Honduran, Nicaraguan and Dominican filler, and is produced in small quantities.
I found this cigar to have an earthy and woody flavor that became bolder about half way then smoothed back out. It burned a little uneven and a few times I fought to keep it lit but it never went out. Aside from that I enjoyed the full-body flavor and richness this cigar had to offer. I look forward to reviewing others in the Punch line.
So what’s the bottom line? It’s good and you should try one for yourself. That’s it for now, till my next review remember “It’s simply about the cigar.”
