The Punch Diablo doesn’t look like any of the other Punch brands before it. It comes outfitted in a black and red scheme that is clearly meant to go along with the darker Diablo name, which starts with the fact that diablo is the Spanish word for devil. If that’s not clear enough, opening the box reveals the slogan “The Dark Side of Punch.” In addition, the cigar is being made by A.J. Fernández, which is the first time the General-owned Punch brand will have a line made somewhere other than the company’s factory in Honduras.
As for the blend it uses an Ecuadorian Sumatra Oscuro wrapper over a Connecticut broadleaf binder and fillers from Honduras and Nicaragua.
