Punch regios de punch cigar for sale. If you were given a mission to find a good Cuban cigar and given the option to pick amongst every cigar Habanos S.A. makes in any given year, I would start with the high-priced cigars that wear either Gran Reserva or Reserva bands.
In the event—as is typically the case at cigar shops around the world—that there are no Gran Reservas or Reservas, my next advice would be to pick Edición Limitadas, and for the same reason: all of these series have one notable thing in common: aged tobacco.

Officially, the Regios de Punch is 120mm x 48, just shy of a robusto in both length and ring gauge. Interestingly, Punch has never have a robusto in its regular production portfolio; the closest size is the Punch Punch, a 5 3/5 x 46 grand corona. However, the robusto size has appear as an Edición Regional release; Switzerland receive the aptly title Punch Robusto in both 2005 and 2007, the Emirates region received the same cigar one in 2008, and Portugal got one in 2011, though it was called the Punch Descobridores.
All of those were 4 9/10 inches (124mm) long with a 50 ring gauge. Germany is slate to receive a robusto vitola as part of the 2017 releases, though it will be 5 1/10 x 55 vitola call the Punch Preferidoes, a vitola also known as the Montesco.

The cigar feels light in the hand, something I rarely notice, though it was very apparent here. Aroma off the wrapper has leather and some acidity, right at medium-plus. The foot is sweeter with twang, some sugar and an underlying nutmeg that contrasts the sweetness. Each cigar has a cold draw that is slightly too open for the size with lots of twang, some barbecue sauce and a bright lemon. It’s medium-plus and extremely balanced, meaning no one flavor sticks out.
Each of the three cigars begins rather mild with cedar, creaminess and a touch of floral flavors. By the third and fourth puffs of the Regios de Punch, the flavor has picked up to medium, which is where it stays for the remainder of the first few inches. There’s oak, a lot of freshly chopped woody flavors and a touch of harshness. The retrophile has some thick vanilla as well as a black pepper, both of which add to the profile, though neither complements the mouth that well. Body is medium-plus and strength is medium.
