BACKGROUND: Only released once a year, the Punch Rare Corojo is always at the top of the ratings, as well as people’s buying list, and the blend seems to get better year after year. In 2014, a new limited size was released and it is this week’s featured cigar. Unlike its predecessors that have the familiar double bands of bright red and gold, the new limited size has a cream-colored band that appears more exclusive and yet is subtle and understated.
The new size sells for an SRP of $7.99 per cigar and will only be available in 2014, until the limited quantity is depleted.
This week I’m featuring the 7.25-inch by 57 ring gauge Rare Salomones.
FEATURED LIBATION: Stranahan Colorado Whiskey
Stranahan Colorado Whiskey got its start when volunteer firefighter Jess Graber responded to a neighbor’s barn fire down the road. The barn he made the effort to save belonged to George Stranahan, a long-time liquor connoisseur. When the fire settled, the two discovered they had a shared passion for the Colorado outdoors and a fine whiskey.
Stranahan’s is a small batch whiskey. Typically when a distiller bottles his whiskey, several hundred or even several thousand barrels are combined to create a whiskey with a uniform taste. At Stranahan’s, they select ten to twenty of their choicest barrels, and combine them for a small batch. And that is how they make Stranahan’s Colorado Whiskey.
