Punch at the top of their game.
An industry leader in innovative, high-end tobacco blending for 175 years, Punch remains one of the most recognizable brands in the biz. Once the face of the Cuban cigar market, Punch found a new home in Honduras in 1969 with the nationalization of Cuba, and they have been refining their craft ever since. Their newest release may be their proudest, tastiest work of art to date.
Dubbed Punch Signature, a combination of rare and extremely refined tobaccos are at play. At first glance, you are met with a spotless Ecuadorian Corojo wrapper leaf with an updated and eye-catching white and black-colored Punch band. Lying just beneath is a feisty, one-of-a-kind Nicaraguan binder cloaking vintage long-fillers from lush growing regions in the Dominican and Nicaragua. Rich, full-bodied notes of aromatic spice, cedar, and leather, along with a slight cinnamon nuance all enter the fray giving way to a complex blend with unwavering balance.
Punch Signature also received an impressive 91-rating noting: "Bold impressions of smoked meat, leather and mesquite are elegantly interwoven with sweet touches of dried stone fruits, caramel and a raw cocoa bean finish."
