When the most recent Edición Regional for Switzerland, the Punch Supremos, made its debut at the country’s Habanos Day last October, it was announced that a limited edition humidor would also be released, but no date had been set. When the cigars arrived at retail in mid-March, the humidor was still in the works, but with no confirmed release date or price.
Today, the Punch Supremos Edición Regional Suiza 2015 humidor is finally available for sale at La Casa del Habano shops in the country.
The humidor, designed to look like a cigar press, is limited to 100 units, each containing 50 of the Punch Supremos. Each humidor comes with an internal humidification system and is priced at CHF 3,800, or approximately US $3,841.
On the left side of the humidor is a carving of the iconic Mr. Punch character, with his catchphrase “that’s the way to do it!” engraved on the top. Mr. Punch traces his history back to 17th century Italy and became known as one of the main characters in Punch and Judy shows in Europe. After defeating his adversaries, he would declare that line.
The Punch Supremos humidor will also be available at Habanos Specialist shops in the country on June 8.
