Don’t Blink, You May Miss It
Like birds migrating south, or the northern lights decorating the winter arctic sky, there’s a certain magic to events that only occur during part of the year. That magic extends to the incredible cigar that is: Rare Corojo. That’s right, Rare Corojo. I even put Rare in the name so it’s idiot-proof.
Right now marks the time of year one of my most popular (and tasty) blends make’s its annual return from hibernation, for a short yet incredible period, and graces itself into your humidors.
Mr. Punch, Mr. Punch, what makes Rare Corojo, Rare?
Well, I’ll tell you.
When blending Rare Corojo, I only select the best Sumatra leaves to be used for the wrapper; meaning it can take up to two years for these flavorful leaves to reach just the right spot for cultivation. Next, I add in an aged Connecticut broadleaf binder and a mix of delicious Criollo (cree-oh-yo) fillers to round out the perfect seasonal treat from your favorite dude (me, Mr. Punch).
Rare Corojo doesn’t stick around forever, so get it in your humidor before it goes.
