The latest batch of the Punch Rare Corojo has shipped.
Pennsylvania-based Atlantic Cigar Co. announced that it had received this year’s cigar including the Punch Rare Corojo 2016 Limited Edition Regalias Perfecto, a 7 1/4 x 54 perfecto that is new for this year. According to a press release issued by General Cigar Co., MSRP on the new size is $7.99, before taxes, with the cigar packed in 10-count boxes.
For the last few years, General Cigar Co. has released a new size as a limited edition each year, but with this year’s new addition comes a deletion, as the Double Corona (6 3/4 x 48) will be retired once this year’s allotment has been depleted.
The Punch Rare Corojo uses an Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper over a Connecticut broadleaf binder and filler tobaccos from the Dominican Republic, Honduras and Nicaragua. This year’s collection comes in a total of nine sizes and is produced at STG Danlí in Honduras.
