Punch’s distinct medium flavour created with a blend of filler and binder tobaccos from Vuelta Abajo are all made using Tripa Larga, Totalmente a Mano – long filler, totally hand made. Punch also produces two machine-made cigarillos: the Cigarritos and Cigarritos Reserva. Punch Coronations continue to be one of their most popular cigars, boasting a medium flavour enjoyable for all.
One of the oldest Habano brands, Punch was founded by Don Manuel López of Juan Valle & Co in the mid 19th Century with an eye to the booming British market where a humorous magazine of the same name was in fashion. It was named after Mr Punch, a clown who personified the magazine, Mr Punch is still featured in every box, cigar in hand, and surrounded by 19th Century images of cigar making that remain virtually unchanged over a century and a half later. In 1931 the Punch became associated with Hoyo de Monterrey and the two brands have been made at the same La Corona factory ever since.
They have two Edición Limitada production cigars. One was released in 2013, and the other in 2017. It is also extremely popular as a brand for the Edicion Regional series of cigars produced by Habanos for local markets.
