The annual release of the Punch Rare Corojo is getting a new addition for 2013: a limited Perfecto vitola, according to a source familiar with the release. Size and price information have not been made available yet, though halfwheel has learned that it is only available as part of a pre-pack of this year’s release.
As is standard for the release of this cigar, retailers can only purchase the cigars for a limited time period, which in 2013 is between March 1 and May 31. There are no restrictions on the dates the cigars can be sold, however.
The wrapper for the Punch Rare Corojo is an Ecuadoran Sumatra, which sits on top of a Connecticut Broadleaf binder and filler from Honduras, Nicaragua and Dominican Republic Piloto Cubano. The cigars are made at Honduras American Tabaco S. A., in Danli, Honduras.
2011 saw the release of the even more limited Punch Rare Corojo 10th Anniversary, which used a rare Connecticut Corojo wrapper. The cigar returned in 2012 with limited availability.
