General Cigar Company and Punch Cigars have announced the return of the Punch Rare Corojo and this time with the addition of a new frontmark pulled from the archives. The 2022 release of Punch Rare Corojo marks the addition of Aristocrat, a burly 6.125” x 40/54 figurado. This special size was originally made at the Villazon factory, commissioned by Frank Llaneza who founded Punch in Honduras. Frank made what he referred to as a baseball bat-size cigar for Red Auerbach and Art Rooney, two sports legends.

Ed Lahmann, senior brand manager for Punch said, “The ‘Aristocrat’ size was almost forgotten. Lucky for us, as we were looking back in the archives of Punch, we learned that this size hadn’t been made in decades. Further digging in the factory turned up 80 molds for this special size which is just what we needed for a limited edition smoke. This is our way of giving a nod to Punch Rare Corojo’s 20 year reign as the original seasonal cigar and paying tribute to the roots of the brand.”
