Punch Golden Era cigars are Honduran puros that consists primarily of aged Corojo tobacco that is grown in the fertile Jamastran Valley region of Honduras. The blend for Golden Era consists of a Honduran Corojo wrapper, Honduran Havana seed Corojo binder, and a combination of Honduran Habano and Corojo long fillers. Corojo tobacco is prized for its oily sheen, deep brown color, barely visible veins, and uniquely rich flavor. Unfortunately, this exquisite tobacco is susceptible to blue-mold disease, which means it provides a low yield, making it a rare and highly desirable leaf to use in any premium cigar blend. The difficult task of growing all the tobacco for Punch Golden Era cigars was given to famed master blender Christian Eiroa, who has a profound love for the Corojo leaf and is well-known for his expertise in successfully growing this tobacco. Every Golden Era cigar is meticulously handcrafted under Christians watchful eye at his prestigious Fabrica de Puros Aladino factory located in in Honduras. You can expect a medium bodied smoke , offering rich, smooth flavors of earth, leather, cinnamon, and spice , backed by a unique, sweetness only attained by Corojo tobaccos. As for the name, Punch Golden Era is a reference to the “golden age” of cigars and the key role Corojo tobacco played for Cuban cigars from the late 1800s up until early part of the 1900s.
