Punch cigars have been made for a long, long time, but until now the Cuban brand never had a 50-ring-gauge smoke in its regular-production portfolio. That’s all changing with the launch of the Punch Short de Punch, a short but fat smoke that expands this venerable Cuban brand, which has been made for more than 170 years.
The new Punch Short de Punch, which was announced at the Habanos Festival two weeks ago, is 4 3/4 inches long by 50 ring, a size called Paraíso in Cuban cigar factories. It’s one of the shortest cigars brought out at the show, and it falls between the petit robusto and the traditional robusto size in terms of length. You won’t find another cigar in the regular Habanos portfolio with quite the same dimensions.
