Punch makes a lot of good cigars, which may be part of the reason that they are so easy to find on sale in any cigar shop’s humidor or on any cigar shop online that you may like to browse from time to time. Of course, it may also have to do with the rich history of the Punch brand.
Punch was founded in the 1840s by a German who looked around Europe and felt that they were an underserved market. He set up shop in Cuba, and began to produce and import cigars that caught on quickly. They became one of the most popular cigar makers in the European market, and found an immense amount of success in the fine lands of the United Kingdom, where they were particularly enjoyed. However, as time went on, the Cuban revolution would undo all this hard work, and Punch was absorbed into the communist government at the barrel of a gun.
Undaunted, the owner of Punch went to Honduras, founded Punch yet again, and started making his cigars once more. They are easy to find, and they are amazing, without any of the guilt of supporting a communist regime.
The Maduro Punch cigars take a Broadleaf Connecticut wrapper, the best fillers that you can find in Nicaragua, Honduras, and the Dominican Republic, and together they create an earthy yet spicy treat that you can enjoy. It’s a bit full-bodied, but if that’s something you’re into, this cigar will do you just fine.
