Punch Punch 48 Emerges


It would appear Habanos S.A. has some new bands.

Christoph Puszkar posted an image of the to-be-released Punch Punch 48, showing new Punch bands as well as secondary band for the La Casa del Habano that does not appear to be previously used.


Puskar is the marketing director for 5th Avenue Products Trading GmbH, the German distributor of Cuban cigars.

The Punch Punch 48 appeared on a leaked version of the 2016 Habanos S.A. release list, though the cigar is still not released. It was listed as an Hermosos No.3 vitola, meaning it is likely 140mm (5 1/2 inches) x 48. That document designated it as an exclusive to the La Casa del Habano (LCDH) franchises, something that seems confirmed by the secondary band.

Typical secondary bands for LCDH releases have used red bands.

Habanos S.A. did not immediately return a request for comment.
