Punch cigars have always been uniquely distinctive, with a name that perfectly aligns with the character of these cigars, as they truly pack a punch. Borrowing popularity from the beloved 19th-century puppet Mr. Punch, the brand was officially registered in 1840 in Havana by the German business Stockmann. This punchy brand was later acquired by Manuel Lopez Fernandez, whose name still adorns the Punch cigar band to this day.
Following the Cuban revolution and subsequent embargo on Cuban cigars, Punch, like other legacy Cuban brands, made a triumphant return to the US market. While the Villazon Family, the then-owners, shifted production to Tampa and Honduras, the Cuban Punch cigar brand continues to thrive, maintaining its strength and reputation.
The Punch portfolio is chocked full of classic gems such as the palate-pleasing petit corona, tongue-tying punch-punch, and regaling royal coronation. While affordable, the full-bodied punch of strength Punch cigars invokes a fiercely loyal following of aficionados, while appealing to newcomers as well.
While General Cigar-owned Honduran Punch cigars certainly draw inspiration from the full-bodied playbook of their Cuban counterparts, there is nothing quite like the original. The tried and true Cuban Punch cigars are composed of prime, aged tobaccos sourced from the renowned Pinar del Rio growing region and deliver a remarkable smoking experience.
