Punch Gran Puro Nicaragua launches

General Cigar announced the launch of Punch Gran Puro Nicaragua, an extension of the brand’s Gran Puro line which comprises four formats ranging in price from $5.29 to $6.99: 4.875 x 48, 5.5 x 54, 6 x 54, and 7 ½ x 54.

 
 

“For the extension of the Gran Puro line, our artisans built a blend that balances Nicaraguan tobaccos with a Maduro wrapper to deliver a layered, dimensional flavor not traditionally found in Nicaraguan-based cigars. We are confident that Punch Gran Puro Nicaragua will be a fast favorite among tenured smokers,” said Ed McKenna, director of marketing strategy for General Cigar, in a press release.

Produced at General Cigar’s HATSA factory in Danlí, Honduras, the blend features a Connecticut broadleaf wrapper along with Nicaraguan binder and filler tobaccos.
