Punch Rare Corojo Returns with Resurrected Frontmark

Punch

Punch Rare Corojo is back, this time with the Aristocrat, a 6.125 x 40/54 figurado ($9.99). The Aristocrat features an Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper over Connecticut Broadleaf binder and Nicaraguan, Honduran and Dominican filler. It is produced at HATSA in Honduras.

Reintroduced in 2001 after a shortage of wrapper leaves caused the product to disappear at retail for several years, Punch Rare Corojo is released annually.

This special size was originally made at the Villazon factory, commissioned by Punch founder Frank Llaneza, who at one point made a baseball bat-size cigar as a tribute to sports legends Red Auerbach and Art Rooney. 

 “The ‘Aristocrat’ size was almost forgotten,” Ed Lahmann, senior brand manager for Punch, said in a press release. “Lucky for us, as we were looking back in the archives of Punch, we learned that this size hadn’t been made in decades. Further digging in the factory turned up 80 molds for this special size which is just what we needed for a limited edition smoke. This is our way of giving a nod to Punch Rare Corojo’s 20 year reign as the original seasonal cigar and paying tribute to the roots of the brand.”
