The Return of Punch Rare Corojo

March will kick off the relaunch of Punch Rare Corojo, an annual limited-edition line made by General Cigar Co. set to be available from March 1 to May 31. The brand is defined by an Ecuadoran Sumatra wrapper that General says is grown in limited quantity.

The Punch Rare Corojo line consists of eight sizes, seven of which use the Ecuadoran wrapper. But a special 10th Anniversary blend is the only size in the series to incorporate a very unusual Connecticut Corojo wrapper.

Measuring 5 inches by 50 ring, the Punch Rare Corojo 10th Anniversary debuted last year and is back for a 2012 encore with a retail price of $6.99. The rest of the line retails in the $3.59 to $6.49 price range. All are made in Honduras at the Honduras American Tabaco S.A. factory.
