Today, the company is known for robust, full flavor smokes. The Punch Signature cigar is really a perfect example of the brand’s style, bringing a wealth of flavor to the blend. The tobacco featured includes Nicaraguan and Ecuadorian long-fillers, an interesting Connecticut Habano binder, and a classic Ecuadorian Corojo wrapper. This leaf was grown exclusively with the Punch Signature cigar in mind, which means that this is the only way to experience it.
Punch urges us to think of the Punch Signature cigar as “the perfect mix of tradition and modern taste.” This usually means a blend that starts certain tobacco seeds or methods that have been in use for ages and then includes some newer twist on things to suit the preferences of today’s cigar smokers. If cigar makers kept making things the exact same way one year after the other, it wouldn’t be a very interesting vice. To keep the experience fresh for us, master blenders are always testing out different leaves at the blending table, striving to find something that will excite our palates.
It doesn’t have to be crazy and far out there to keep blends interesting. In fact, a single leaf from different priming, or even a different farm can be enough to totally change the character of a blend. Here, the Corojo wrapper on the Punch Signature cigar is a nod to tradition, while the Connecticut Habano binder is, to us, a bit of a departure. The flavors that result are off the charts: mesquite barbeque, caramelized sauce, cherries, cocoa bean, and more. This is a hearty, full-strength smoke – one that flavor hounds will get a lot out of. The next time you bust out the smoker, light up a Punch Signature cigar and pop the top on a frosty beer. Sounds like a good time to us!
