Punch Cigars in Canada : A Review by Terry Pomerantz

Terry Pomerantz presents Punch cigars. “Punch cigars are high-quality cigars. They are full-bodied cigars for experienced cigar smokers. I do not recommend these cigars to those who are new to the world of cigars. Personally, I like to smoke a Punch after dinner, with a good scotch or cognac.”

A Short History of Punch Cigars

Punch Cigars were created in Cuba in 1840 by Valle y Cia. The choice of the Punch name and brand logo was a strategic one, aimed toward the British market. Punch was a famous character in British puppet shows; a grumpy, hunchbacked clown with a crooked nose. 

While visiting the Punch cigar manufactory during a trip to Havana, Winston Churchill, legendary leader and statesman, gave his name to one of the brand’s cigar sizes.

Punch Cigars: Terry’s Opinion

Punch Cigars are made in Cuba by artisans that pay close attention to the choice of tobacco leaves and their fermenting and aging process.

“There is a good reason why one of the most popular cigar smokers of all time, Sir Winston Churchill, gave his name to a Punch. Although they are quite powerful, experienced cigar smokers quickly recognize their undeniable qualities.” (Terry Pomerantz)

Different Punch Cigars

Among the different Punch cigars, Terry Pomerantz has a strong preference for 5 of them.

Punch Churchill

A medium bodied cigar, this Punch stands out for its impeccable construction and earthy undertones. A classic cigar.

Punch Punch

The brand’s namesake cigar is full-bodied. The smoker will appreciate the underlying tones of wood, pepper and humid earth.

Punch Short by Punch

A compact cigar with woody aromas and underlying tones of humid grass. Once the smoker reaches the second third, this Paraiso becomes more full-bodied, with spicier undertones.
