PUNCH Punch is one of the oldest Habanos brands. Don Manuel López de Juan Valle founded this brand in the mid-19th century, with the idea of entering the growing English market, where a humorous publication of the same name was in vogue in those days. Mr. Punch, the clown that was the symbol of that publication, continues to appear in each of the brand’s boxes with his Habano in hand, surrounded by 19th-century images that shows the making of Habanos. In 1931, Punch moved to the factory where Hoyo de Monterrey was produced; a long association that continues today. Actually, the two brands are produced at La Corona factory. The characteristic flavor and medium strength of Punch, made with a blend of filler and wrapper leaves coming from the Vuelta Abajo zone, are available in a range of vitolas that are made “Totally Handmade with long filler”.
