A Turrent Puro Corojo Cigar



The A Turrent Puro Corojo series of cigars has had some big footsteps to follow ever since its 2011 launch. After the tremendous success for Alejandro Turrent and his first offering, the Triple Play, this line-up was met with pure anticipation and high expectations among those in the the cigar industry. The tobaccos utilized in the A Turrent Puro Corojo series are truly the cream of the crop. The deep family history in the business as well as the extensive experience Alejandro has accumulated has lent a hand in this second masterpiece for the producer.



Beginning as early as 1880, this family has exhibited the fine craftsmanship of true cigar creators. Alejandro’s great-great-grandfather Alberto relocated to Mexico from his home land of Cuba. With him he had brought a small amount of Cuban seeds that would ultimately be the origin of the family business right there in the San Andres Valley. Alejandro started from the bottom in the tobacco world by first providing local vendors with the education and sales of their stogies. Following his college career in Monterrey, Alejandro went right to work in the factory, learning all phases of the production process. Currently, he is the fifth generation of cigar makers in his family and has taken on the role of both President and co-owner of Nueva Matacapan de Tabaco in Mexico. Along with his father, this rather young cigar master oversees the 2000-acre crop of the company’s highly sought after leaves, as well as the full production process of each of their submissions into the industry.



Introduced at the 2011 IPCPR exhibition, the A Turrent Puro Corojo series makes fine use out of the high quality tobaccos the company has on hand. This line-up is composed solely of Corojo tobacco leaves from the inside out. The exterior wrapper is made up of Mexican San Andres tobacco and has a natural coloring to it. On the inside, this medium to full bodied smoke has a Nicaraguan binder and a blended filler of San Andres and Nicaraguan Corojo tobaccos. It is available in a number of gauges including the Belicoso, Churchill, Gran Toro, Robusto, and Toro. Each can be obtained individually, as well as in boxes of 21.



As with their preceding line-up, the A Turrent Puro Corojo series is said to be one of a kind while remaining simple and flavorful from start to finish. The leaves utilized throughout these stogies are considered quite fragile, yet reviewers reported the construction as both looking and feeling strong and solid. The wrapper is pale brown in color and was said to have a light glaze of oil on the surface. Upon lighting up the full bodied flavors do not hesitate to introduce themselves. During the first third, the taste is said to be mainly woodsy, with gentle undertones of spicy pepper. As reviewers transitioned into the second third the full-bodied experience is obvious. The pepper tones are said to continue while now being accompanied by hints of greenery. The final third reportedly brings back the woodsy flavors from the beginning with more intensity. The draw and burn are said to be smooth and even throughout, with the ash holding firm. While the full-bodied strength is noticeable, reviewers agreed that the A Turrent Puro Corojo series offered a relaxing smoke from beginning to end.



The combination of rich family history, premium Corojo tobaccos, and professional craftsmanship have brought about another winning line-up for this well known cigar company. Alejandro may be young, but he has not wasted any time creating notable, high quality smokes for every true aficionado’s humidor.
