The Punch Brand has been around since 1840, originally crafted for export to the United Kingdom. To celebrate its 18th anniversary, General Cigar is releasing the Punch Aniversario, which the company is calling its more limited offering to date.
At the upcoming 2018 IPCPR trade show, Punch cigars will introduce a new line called Diablo. As the name suggests, it is an extremely bold and full-bodied cigar with strength and power. AJ Fernandez blended the cigar for Altadis U.S.A. with tobaccos from four different countries, all of which have aged 4-6 years. The cigars are rolled by hand at the AJ Fernandez factory in Nicaragua.
General Cigar has updated the look for its Punch Signature line. The redesigned packaging actually started hitting shelves already, earlier this month. The blend remains unchanged.
"Overall, it was an okay smoke, no frills for me at least. If you like earthy notes with some pepper and char, this will be right up your alley. Little gave in way of sweetness save the grassy notes in the beginning that quickly faded halfway through. Draw issues with it being too tightly rolled made smoking it at times a chore, however all in all, eh, try it… you might like it, you might not, you be the judge…" -John A. (Bostoneo)
This month, Punch Cigars will release the PACK OF PUNCH. The new six-pack will have a MSRP of $24.99 and contain 6 of the most popular blends from Punch. At participating retailers, they will be available in a counter top display featuring the Mr. Punch mascot and the brand’s signature red and blue packaging.
