The Punch La Isla has arrived on the island.
Habanos S.A.’s latest Edición Regional for its home country of Cuba is the Punch La Isla, Spanish for the island. The cigar comes in the robusto vitola, which measures 4 7/8 inches long (124mm) with a 50 ring gauge.
This is the fifth Edición Regional produced for Cuba:
- La Gloria Cubana Deliciosos — 2009
- El Rey del Mundo Infantes — 2013
- Diplomaticos Excelencia — 2015
- Saint Luis Rey Marquéz — 2016
- Punch La Isla — 2018
It’s that largest release of the quintet, with 10,000 individually numbered, slide-lid boxes of 10 cigars produced.
A representative from Habanos S.A. did not reply to questions about pricing for the cigar.
Update (July 23, 2019) — A source in Havana tells halfwheel that the Punch La Isla is selling for 115 CUC per box, which is equivalent to US $115, though with exchange fees, works out to around $132.
