A premium smoke. Have bought and smoked all 4 sizes. Rich and lots of flavor w/o being strong for strong's sake. Quite smooth with an easy draw and consistent burn. Have yet to get a bad one and I have smoked about at least 1/2 box of double coronas and Rothchilds and 5-10 of the pita and magnum. Can't find a fault with this blend.
easy draw. burns well. great wrapper that adds to overall taste of this great cigar.
A friend indeed told me about these Punch Rare Corojo s, I m so glad, best referral this year. From the overall appearance in the wrapper, to the texture and feel this stick is a winner all the way around. Who says, good to the last drop? This stick is fabulous to the last draw. the longer in the humidor the better. Just placed my second order for these. I ll be sure to keep at least 5 in the box for future consumption.
One of the best Corojos that I've every tried. My only disappointment is it wasn't big enough. This one could have been a mile long and I wouldn't have backed off it. If your a fan of corojo and didn't like this gem maybe try cleansing the pallet with a little sip of your favorite spirit prior to lighting.
2.5 hours and 6 beers later!!!! Going to my top 5 list!!!
Cigar is consistent from tip to tip. Great burn and ash.
The Punch Rare Corojo Crystal is a fabulous smoke! Gentlemen, I have had them all and this baby rates right up there with the best. I am on my second box and they all have been perfect. Perfect draw, construction, taste, aroma, burn, etc. It's a Beautiful Thing!
I have to admit that the huge square glass tubes with the real cork stoppers were a mind blower when first viewed even though I consider myself preferring value over presentation. With the heft and size of the box you really feel that you have bought something special here. Of course when the tube gave birth to the cigar I almost thought I should burp the blessed one! It's not just the 6 inches 60 ring gauge that impresses but that it is also square pressed. There are other Gordo sized Toros on the market today but the dense packed square pressing adds a whole another, ahem, dimension to this smoke giving it a heft and feel unlike any other. Upon lighting a full bodied rush of flavor comes through and just keeps coming in a consistent cool smoking stick of tobacco flavors spicy but not overwhelmingly, only pleasantly, so. If you take you time to enjoy the El Doble you will find agreeable satisfying tastes all over the palate without harshness. It is a complement to the construction that, as I write this I am half way through my sixth one and have yet to encounter a burn problem. Not even a touch up, a first for this large a ring gauge in my experience. If you have smoked a Rare Corojo in a different size before and enjoyed the experience you must smoke at least one of these. The huge ring gauge was made for this blend and wrapper and this year's crop seems better than ever. Oh, by the way, the tubes are practical too!
I have resolved to only smoke Punch after having had plenty of Ashtons, Cuban and Dominican Cohibas, Romeo Y Julietas, Macanudos and numerous other reportedly good one off brands. The rare corojo was indeed a flavorful, fragrant treat, with excellent construction and a beautiful appearance. I've been looking for a square pressed cigar that was of this quality. Be aware that these burn very hot over the last 1/4 of the cigar (it's hard to give them up, even after the hour plus of smoking bliss).
I'm used to buying "La Aurora Maduro" in the ruby tube and "Opus X" when you can get them, to acquire the premium taste and perfection I've come to ultimately desire. My main stay El Rey Del Mundo Maduro's another great cigar, but now I've come across Punch Rare Corojo in the single display box, and all I can say is "WOW" ,where have you been all my life ;), delicious in every sense!!!! A true "10"
The first time I heard of this cigar, it was touted as very close to a cuban. Many such claims have been made before, but when my friend and I lit up our Corojos we were in immidiate agreement that this was as close to a Cuban as we had found.It is light but bold, with a good consistent draw and the flavor stays consistent almost to the lip burning finish. It is a cigar you dont want to extinguish.The Rare Corojos is a treat to smoke.
