    Dont let the Punch name fool you. There's no corojo in that stick. It's a trademarked name only for them. It's kinda hard to describe the flavor, especially once you add it to a blend, at least for me. I do prefer Dominican Dominican corojo to Honduran. I should send you some leaf samples to try

    Really?? So they’re pretty telling a flat it lie. How did you find out that there’s no corojo in it?? Damn! How hard is it for them to put corojo leaf into that blend?? I do like the stick still, but damn!! I would greatly appreciate that though!!(y)

    I have a few industry friends and worked in a cigar shop myself for a while.

    I rolled my first 3 today. The sizes were all over the place with the first having a super loose draw while the second and third had nice draws. I didn't bother to cap them but will try to cap the next few I roll later this week. What can of worms have you allowed me the opportunity to open @Hopduro?![​IMG]

    Thanks, I'm pleasantly surprised they at least resemble cigars! I think I'm going to make some PVC molds as I have everything in my garage already.
