Punch is one of the oldest Habanos brands. Don Manuel Lopez of Juan Valle & Co. founded this brand in the middle of the 19th century with a view to the profitable British market. At that time, a satirical magazine of the same name celebrated great success there.
A satisfied Mr. Punch, the clown who represented the magazine, can still be seen with a cigar in his hand on every box. His portrait is surrounded by images of 19th century cigar making, which have remained virtually unchanged for a century and a half.
In 1925, Punch moved to the factory where Hoyo de Monterrey was made, establishing a collaboration that continues to this day.
The trademarks of the Punch are pleasant and pronounced woody notes, a fine sweetness and a medium tobacco taste in beautiful balance. The blends of tobaccos from the Vuelta Abajo are not very tannic. The Punch is available in a large number of different formats. All formats are 'totalmente a mano, tripa larga' - completely handmade long fillers.
