Wrapper: Ecuadoran Sumatra. Filler: Honduran, Nicaraguan, Dominican (Piloto Cubano). Binder: Connecticut Broadleaf. Country of Manufacture: Honduras. Factory Name: Honduras American Tabaco S. A., Cofradia, Honduras. -- The history: The original Punch cigar was created in 1840 by a Cuban cigar manufacturer named Manuel Lopez. In an effort to attract the British market, he named the cigar after Mr. Punch, the cantankerous half of the Punch and Judy puppet shows, which also inspired the name of the famous British humor magazine. Produced in Honduras for Villazon Company under the direction of a great Cuban cigar master, Frank Llaneza, Punch has been a leading premium brand ever since it was first imported from Honduras in 1969. The cigar: Punch lives up to its name with a bold, full-bodied taste that appeals to men who follow their own instincts as opposed to following the crowd. The wrapper is a full-flavored leaf grown in Ecuador and the filler is a rich blend of Honduran, Nicaraguan and Dominican tobaccos. The experience: the straightforward, no-nonsense cigar it would have taken to bring a smile to the otherwise curmudgeonly face of Mr. Punch himself.
Great burn, great aroma & great price! The anytime pick to relax and enjoy. Perfect cigar for myself. Highly recommend!!

Very Flavorful, Tend To Draw Unevenly
I like this cigar quite a bit. When there's not a ton of time available and a larger smoke isn't practical, the Punch Elite is perfect. It has a fantastic flavor with a very nice finish.

Could not believe the difference between the London Club and the Elite. Smoother and more flavorful.

Great everyday smoke
I smoke one of these everyday. Smooth and lots of flavor and always burns nicely. They last about an hour.

Go to cigar
This is my "default" cigar. Punch elites are the perfect size for me and very tasty but not epicure. These are highly consistent from stick to stick and I truly enjoy almost every one (about 1 in 300 has a draw issue). Please don't take this as a recommend to buy as I want them to stay in stock. BCP pricing and service is, IMO, second to none.
