Punch is one of the very oldest Habano brands. Don Manuel Lopez of Juan Valle & Co  founded it in the mid 19th century with an eye to the booming British market where a humorous magazine of the same name was much in vogue. 

A contented Mr Punch, the clown who personified the magazine, 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 in the same factory ever since. Today the factory is La Corona. 

Punch's distinct medium flavour created with a blend of filler and binder tobaccos from Vuelta Abajo is available in a wide variety of sizes which are all long filler and totally hand made. 

Tasting Notes

Strong without being agressive, with a penetrating aroma. Excellent draw and combustion. lt has cedar and earthy notes. A Fabulous Smoke!

89 / 100

"...Solidly rolled with a firm draw that imparts a somewhat thin draw. The smoke exhibits a combination of floral notes and sweet graham cracker, but the weak draw hurt the score..."

Much like the Punch Churchill, the Double Corona often is overlooked as an alternative to the better known DCs. This is a fantastic cigar in its own right. written by mmeadows

Full boddied smoke with a tight draw requiring the cigar to be relit a couple of times. I found this smoke to be quite meaty and at times on the strong side. I think this cigar will gain some complexity in time. written by Michael

I was pretty unimpressed with these cigars at first and would only have given them a 3 (or even a 2). But after sitting around in the humidor for 6 months they seem to have developed a bit of flavour. The general build quality is very good (draw, burn etc), but whilst unmistakably Cuban in flavour, they are not a memorable smoke. Put aside a while for one of these monsters (at least 1.5 hours). Alternatively, you can smoke the first half and bin the rest, youd not be missing anything. written by Alex

A fairly bland first half gave way to some fruity flavors. The last third provided all the enjoyment with creamy sweet flavors. The draw was a bit tight, but not too disturbint. This cigar burned well and left a beautiful solid ash. Was expecting a bit more than it gave. written by rubyz
