The story of Punch cigars is a story familiar to anyone who knows much about the old Cuban brands. It was founded by someone from Europe, a German, in the 1800s. The company then changes hands a few times, and ends up Cuban-owned. Production is going great, things are doing well, the cigars are popular throughout Europe and are especially loved in England, and then comes the Cuban revolution.
It’s really hard to find Cuban cigars here in America, mostly due to that embargo. This being the case, it’s a good thing that a new Punch was set up, one which operates out of Honduras, which can still ship cigars to us and whose cigars you can find in almost every tobacco shop and online cigar shop that you may encounter.
So how does the Punch Maduro offering stand up to the other Maduros on the market? Quite well, to be sure. Starting with a Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper to give it the desired dark and smooth taste, this cigar has plenty of flavor, some dark and spicy notes to it, and a filler tobacco mix that will allow you to enjoy the fullness of this cigar. If you’re a fan of Maduro cigars, you should try the Punch Maduro.
