Dating from the 1840’s and originally manufactured in Cuba, Punch cigars are now also made at the Honduras American Tabaco S. A. (HATSA) factory, in Cofradia, Honduras as well. The Honduran Punch cigars were created by cigar legend Frank Llaneza and first introduced to the US market in 1969 by Villazon (now part of General Cigar). Comprised of all Cuban-seed tobaccos from Honduras, Nicaragua, the US, and the Dominican Republic, Punch cigars offer the smoker a range of sizes not found in other brands. Using either a natural Ecuadorian Sumatra-seed or a US Connecticut Broadleaf maduro wrapper, Punch cigars are medium to full bodied and very flavorful. Whether you are looking for an exceptional cigar for a great price or searching for the classic Honduran smoke, look no farther than Punch cigars.
Punch lives up to its name with a bold, full-bodied taste that appeals to men who follow their own instincts as opposed to following the crowd. The wrapper is a full-flavored leaf grown in Ecuador and the filler is a rich blend of Honduran, Nicaraguan and Dominican tobaccos. Not a conventional cigar, and probably not the first cigar for a new smoker to try, Punch is the straightforward, no-nonsense cigar it would have taken to bring a smile to the otherwise curmudgeonly face of Mr. Punch himself.
My favorite Punch cigar is the Punch Cafe Royal. The Cafe Royal has been a London landmark since 1865. A place where the great, the good and the seriously eccentric have held court, held sway and held on. This was a place where history has occasionally been made. The Café Royal began as a dream and has remained a dream for its guests ever since. French wine merchant Daniel Nicholas Thévenon, fleeing bankruptcy in France (having been undone by generosity), arrived in England in 1863 with five pounds and Célestine, his wife, partner and the best investment he ever made (even then she was carrying two gold sovereigns of which Daniel was unaware). Good food, good service good wines and good cigars made his Café-Restaurant a success from the start. Within ten years, Daniel had created one of the most famous and cosmopolitan catering establishments in the world. Famous Bohemian Oscar Wilde made the Café his own and his followers did what they do best—they followed. And with them came other celebrities and their admirers in a kaleidoscopic pageant of personalities. The Café Royal has always been synonymous with excitement, glamour and decadence – giving people what they want while introducing them to pleasures they never imagined. Punch lives up to the big Café royal name with a bold, full-bodied taste that appeals to men who follow their own instincts as opposed to following the crowd. The wrapper is a full-flavored leaf grown in Ecuador and the filler is a rich blend of Honduran, Nicaraguan and Dominican tobaccos. Adhering to the high standards of the Café Royal name, each box of Café Royal (5âï¿½ï¿½ x 44) contains eight wonderful cigars, encased in crystal tubes and nesting in red velvet encased box. There are two colors to choose from: Natural and Maduro, or maybe you’d like to try both?
Besides Cafe Royal, Punch popular sizes are: Punch After Dinner, Punch Bolos, Punch Champion, Punch Double Corona, Punch Elite or Elites, Punch Gusto Tubo, Punch Largo Elegantes, Punch London Club, Punch Lonsdale, Punch Magnum, Punch Pita, Punch Presidente, Punch Punch, Punch Rothschild, Punch Slim Panatellas, and we also carry many Punch cigar samplers.
