Punch is the name of two brands of cigars, one produced in Cuba and the other in Honduras. The Cuban Punch is owned by Habanos SA, the Cuban state-owned tobacco company, and the Honduran Punch is owned by General Cigar Company, a subsidiary of Scandinavian Tobacco Group1
The Punch brand was first registered in 1840 by a German named Stockmann and named for the European puppet show character, Mr. Punch. The brand became popular in Great Britain and changed ownership several times until it was bought by Fernández, Palicio y Cía in 1930. After the Cuban Revolution, the brand was nationalized by the Cuban government and continued production. The original owner of Fernández, Palicio y Cía sold his cigar lines to Villazon & Co., which started making Punch cigars from Honduran tobacco for the American market1
Punch cigars are known for their full-bodied and spicy flavor, with a variety of vitolas (sizes) and blends to choose from. Some of the most famous Punch cigars are the Churchill, the Double Corona, and the Petit Corona del Punch. Punch also produces limited edition cigars, such as the Edición Limitada and the Edición Regional series12
