During the Golden Era of cigars, the Corojo wrapper leaf was prized for its silky, oily wrapper and its unique spice. Corojo leaf remained the wrapper of choice for premium cigars until disease plagued the prized crop and Corojo was resigned to the history books.... or so we thought.
The Punch Golden Era is a Honduran puro with all of the tobaccos grown by JRE Tobacco ncluding the Cuban-seed Corojo. According to the Eiroa family, who grows the tobacco in the Jamastran Valley of Honduras, their Corojo varietals are from non-hybrid seeds that originated directly from the El Corojo farm in Cuba and have not been cross-strained. Aside from some leaves in the filler, the Honduran Corojo makes up the rest of the blend. This rare tobacco has been carefully cultivated by the Eiroa family on 650 acres since 1997.
As a result of years of careful cultivation, Punch is able to present to you an expertly crafted cigar, handmade with authentic Corojo leaf in all three components: wrapper, binder, and filler. The Golden Era is a balanced and flavorful cigar without being overpowering.
