Cigar new: Press release
PUNCH TO LAUNCH NEW FULL-TIME LINE WITH GOLDEN ERA
Punch invites cigar lovers to take a trip back in time with Punch Golden Era, a new, three-cigar collection that will be a full-time addition to the Punch anthology.
Punch Golden Era celebrates the beauty and versatility ofthe corojo tobacco that had a starring role in the “golden age” of cigars. Corojo had been used as the wrapper of choice until tobacco diseases and mold brought the tobacco to the brink of extinction.
Today, Punch is bringing Corojo tobacco back to its former glory, thanks to the famous Cuban seeds that havebeen cultivated on a 650-acre farm in Honduras by the Eiroa family.
The cigar is made with Honduran-grown, Cuban seedCorojo wrapper and binder, and its filler is comprised of Honduran-grown Habano and Cuban-seed Corojotobacco.
John Hakim, brand manager for Punch said, “The Eiroa family has perfected Corojo tobacco and we are excited to bring it to life with Punch Golden Era. This tobacco delivers a silky, golden wrapper, a binder with ideal combustibility and a filler that produces unique spicy notes and a spectrum of nuances. We’re especially pleased to make a true Corojo experience available for cigar loverto enjoy any time the occasion calls for a rich and rewarding smoke.”
Mellow-to-medium-bodied, Punch Golden Era is elegant and refined. The cigar balances notes of earth, cream and nuts.
Punch Golden Era is hand made at Fabrica de Puros Aladino SA in Honduras. The cigars will be presented in 20-count boxes and will ship to retailers on May 1. The line will launch with three sizes.
Robusto (5” x 50); SRP per cigar $9.99
