    Punch Rare Corjo

    WOW is all i can say. i smoked it in the gordo size (6"x60). had a good spice to it along with a sweeter, natural tobacco taste. i let it burn down till my fingers about caught fire. if you haven't tried this i recommend it. i WILL be smoking more of these cigars along with a yuengling beer lol. Like i said, try one!

    You're right that these are a good smoke.
    I prefer the Elites as the wrapper imparts more flavor.

    I'm a big punch fan, but I have not had the rare corojo as of yet. I will have to look for that one. I really enjoy the regular punch line but the uppercut and gran puro lines are my favorite.

    I just bought a couple of these last week and am very excited about getting around to them.

    The Rare Corojo is the best of the Punch line up IMHO. I tend to prefer the Elites also as I love that Corojo flavor from the wrapper, but admit that the Champion is a neat little size too.

    I'm a huge fan of the 10th Anniversary. My box is down to 3...

    Nice, peppery stick. I truly enjoyed it and would smoke another. However, I'm wondering why it's called a Rare Corojo, when it has a Sumatra wrapper. Maybe it's because the wrapper imitates a Corojo with it pepperiness? Just wondering.

    I think it might vary from year to year/release to release. Everyone says the Rare Corojo has a different wrapper (CI, Thompson, etc) than the other so I guess it's hard to say. FWIW, Punch's website does say Sumatran. The anniversary edition in 2011 was a corojo wrapper, IIRC.

    I've had several Rare Corojos, and I've gotta say the Champion is my favorite vitola.

    RC Elites are always satisfying

    It's only because of the color of the tobacco. General wanted to pay tribute to the Corojo plant by having a reddish-brown leaf, and when they found it they blended the RC line. Seriously.

    Thanks, but where did you get this info from?

    It was in an old magazine article about the history of the Corojo wrapper. I don't remember when it was published, but Christian Eiroa (who has a claim to the only authentic Corojo tobacco) was working with Caribe at the time, so it was pre-Camacho.

    I like the 10th Anniversary as well - there are a few boxes out there last time I looked. The Gran Puro line is great - I did not have luck with my first Corojo so the rest of the box is aging. I am a Punch fan as well, even smoke the little London Club ones.

    Everyone is saying pepper but I really remember it (10th anni) being sweet and creamy. At any rate, great stick.
