Punch is one of the oldest Habano brands,founded in 1840 by Don Manuel Lopez of Juan Valle & Company and intended for the booming British market. The name Punch is drawn from a famous comic book "Punch & Judy" in which the clown, Mr. Punch, is still seen today on every box with his sly smile and cigar. Unlike most Punch cigars, the Deluxe Chateau L is a more amped up version of the standard line. This cigar is filled with Cuban-seed tobaccos from the Dominican Republic, Nicaragua, and Honduras, bound with an Ecuadorian Sumatra, then all wrapped up in a sun-grown Connecticut Broadleaf. This combination will lead to flavors rich in earth, leather, and wood with hints of pepper and cedar. To accompany this medium to full cigar, we found that having a nice cappuccino paired perfectly.
Though tobacco is indigenous to Hispaniola, the tobacco industry in the Dominican Republic existed in the shadow of Cuba’s dominance through the 1960s. When the exodus of Cuban cigar makers began in the wake of the revolution, many decided the Dominican Republic would be ideal for the resumption of their livelihoods. Unrest in Nicaragua in the 1980s fueled the Dominican cigar industry further. The country now makes more than half of the premium cigars imported into the U.S. The Cibao Valley and the nearby city of Santiago are the center of cigar production in the Dominican Republic. Three main varieties are grown here: the mild and native Olor Dominicano; the intense Piloto Cubano, brought from the Vuelta Abajo of Cuba; and San Vicente, a milder and more acidic Piloto hybrid. Dominican puros were once unheard of as it was widely thought impossible to grow quality wrapper leaf on the island, but new growing techniques are now allowing some exceptional puros to be produced.
