Punch Knuckle Buster Habano, the wallet-friendly collection that debuted in March 2020, is adding a short gordo to its lineup.
Produced at HATSA in Honduras, Punch Knuckle Buster Habano Stubby features a Nicaraguan Habano wrapper, a Nicaraguan Habano binder with filler from Nicaragua and Honduras. The 4.5 x 60 cigar ($5.39) ships in early April and comes in 20-count boxes.
“The Stubby delivers what fans loved about Knuckle Buster Habano in a new ‘stubby’ size,” John Hakim, brand manager for Punch, said in a press release. “
Named for a phrase made famous by a university basketball coach who described a rough and tumble physical game as a “blue collar knuckle buster,” the Punch Knuckle Buster Habano line was created in 2020 and was extended in 2022 to add the Knuckle Buster Maduro.
