PUNCH CIGARS

Who are Punch?

Like so many of the classic cigars, Punch originated in Havana.

Where do they get their name?

They manufactured their wares for the English market and their name comes from the classic British seaside show character, Mr. Punch!

Who likes them?

Counting renowned wartime leader, Winston Churchill as a fan, these are truly an iconic brand.

Highly popular in the United States, today, Punch is owned and based in Honduras.

MADURO

Name: MADURO

Strength: MEDIUM

Size: 6 1/8 INCH X 50 TORO

Country: HONDURAS

Binder: CONNECTICUT BROADLEAF

Filler: NICARAGUA, HONDURAS, DOMINICAN REPUBLIC

Aroma: LEATHER, WOOD

Flavor: PEPPER, SPICE, LEATHER, WOOD, COCOA

Perfect with: CHOCOLATE OR ON ITS OWN

WHAT WE THOUGHT

This is a medium cigar which may seem slightly mild compared to the full on strength of the Pita.

This does not mean that it has no flavor.

Quite the opposite, with cocoa notes and a deep aroma of spice and leather, this is a classic cigar for all palates.

Our reviewers noted its savory elements and the general, well rounded feel to its structure. This is a solid cigar and is neither too rough, nor too hard.

With peppery flavors, this is a rich experience and one that you will definitely remember.

If you like a flavor that changes and constantly delights, this Maduro is definitely for you. We could certainly see why this brand has been so popular, since its inception in 1969!

Lasting over two hours, you will not be disappointed with this cigar, which represents good value for the money.

 PITA

Name: PITA

Strength: FULL STRENGTH

Size: 6 1/8 INCH X 50 TORO

Country: HONDURAS

Binder: CONNECTICUT BROADLEAF

Filler: NICARAGUA, HONDURAS, DOMINICAN REPUBLIC

Aroma: CEDAR

Flavor: WOOD, EARTH, LEATHER

Perfect with: COFFEE

WHAT WE THOUGHT

This is a great, old fashioned cigar that has been around for donkey’s years.

Often, it can be difficult to find old classics such as the Pita and when you do, they have been altered, leaving the results disappointing.

Refreshingly, this has not happened to the Pita and over the years it has retained its quality and is simple and satisfying.

Highly recommended by all our reviewers.

 GRAN PURO

Name: GRAN PURO

Strength: MEDIUM/STRONG

Size: 6 1/8 INCH X 48 CORONA GORDA

Country: DOMINICAN REPUBLIC

Binder: HONDURAN SAN AGUSTIN

Filler: HONDURAN SAN AGUSTIN

Aroma: SWEET FLOWERS

Flavor: ALMONDS, ESPRESSO, SPICES

Perfect with: ESPRESSO

WHAT WE THOUGHT

With a flavor of roast almonds, this perfectly spiced cigar both looks and tastes good.

Leathery notes accompany the aroma and there is a sweetness and delicate spice to its flavor.

Ever since 2003 these have been one of Punch Cigar’s premier Honduran blends and are made with the tobacco of the San Agustin Valley.

Effortlessly combining the floral with a creaminess that is lacking from some other cigars with big flavors, this went down perfectly with a morning espresso – no cream or sugar needed!
