Punch enters the dark side
Coming in hot from IPCPR 2018 Punch delivers its boldest creation to date – Punch Diablo. Punch cigars have been produced in Honduras since their inception in 1960, but when it came time to blend a new, bolder Punch, they turned to none other than AJ Fernandez in Esteli, Nicaragua. The task was to use aged tobacco to create a cigar with strength and bold flavors, complementing the Punch portfolio. They used a bevy of dark tobaccos from four different countries resulting in a bold new creation that is sure to offer full-bodied enthusiasts another reason to love the classic Punch brand.
At first glance you’ll find a 4 years aged Ecuadoran Sumatra Oscuro wrapper that’s dark and toothy. Underneath you’ll find another 4 years aged blend of Nicaraguan and Honduran Habano ligero leaves, bound by a bold Connecticut Broadleaf binder that’s been aged 6 years. This 4 country concoction offers up indulgent and spicy flavors with notes of wood, earth, and leather. If you’ve been on the prowl for a new powerhouse cigar, you can count on AJ’s new take on Punch cigars.
Good news! Punch Diablo has earned an awesome 93-point rating from the critics, noting: "Every puff of this dark cigar gives the sensation of biting into a piece of chocolate fudge, studded with nuts, espresso beans and toasted coconut. Hints of caramel and earth make this smoke a sublimely rich experience."
A knockout combination.
For decades, Punch cigars have been known as one of the best representations of Honduran cigars on the market. A bit of natural sweetness and earthy notes with just the right amount of spice to fit anyone's palate. This sampler showcases the two blends that put Punch cigars on the map, with the classic blend in three different wrapper options. The flavors don't stray too far from a solid medium body, and the sizes are compact but satisfying. But the best part? We're dishing them out at just $4 per cigar. Thats a lotta punch for a little price.
