Despite the vintage appearance of Punch Signature, the cigar is actually among the newest additions to the storied brand. The Punch name was originally created in 1840, named after a popular European puppet show character, Mr. Punch (of Punch and Judy).
With Punch Signature, the cigar harkens back to the brand's early days, showing a retro-inspired design (including bringing the Mr. Punch character back) that is said to be based on an original Punch cigar from the 19th century. The cigar's blend has also been inspired from the past, where Punch was known to use both Ecuadorian and Corojo tobaccos—a combination of which has been incorporated into the Punch Signature's wrapper.
That's right, a specially cultivated, proprietary Ecuadorian Corojo leaf is used for the cigar's wrapper. On the interior, a hearty Connecticut Habano binder envelops a multinational blend of Nicaraguan and Dominican tobaccos. This makes for a medium-plus body, offering fun flavor combinations of cedar wood, tang, zesty spices, milk chocolate, and chili powder.
