The 2011 A Turrent Puro Corojo series was created by Alejandro Turrent as an amazing follow-up to his successful Triple Play cigar.Â These great cigars did not disappoint the high level of anticipation that was awaiting their introduction. With the deep family history behind it, there is no doubt as to why the A Turrent Puro Corojo series was and continues to be a winning smoke.
With the immigration of Alejandroâ€™s great-great-grandfather Alberto from Cuba to Mexicoâ€™s San Andres Valley in 1880, the business began with a small amount of Cuban seeds he brought with him. Years later, Alejandro slowly immersed himself into all phases of production and became the fifth generation in the family business. He is now President and co-owner of Nueva Matacapan de Tabaco in Mexico. The company, jointly owned with his father, is widely known for its 2000 acres of top of the line tobaccos.
The A Turrent Puro Corojo series is made entirely of quality Corojo tobaccos. The wrapper is Mexican San Andres while the binder is Nicaraguan and the filler is both San Andres and Nicaraguan tobacco. This medium to full bodied stogie is available in sizes such as Belicoso, Churchill, Toro, Gran Toro, and Robusto.
Cigar reviews agree that the A Turrent Puro Corojo series demonstrates its strength from start to finish yet feels easy and relaxingly smooth at the same time. Pre-lit, this smoke is a light brown color, lightly oiled and feels solid in the hand. When fired up, the first third is said to have woodsy and pepper flavors. In the middle the spicy taste remains with a reported nature undertone. To finish it up, the last third was said to have a stronger woodsy kick, making its full bodied nature apparent. This fine cigar is a staple in the humidors of cigar smoking aficionados of all smoking preferences.
