The 25 Best Cigars of the Year 2012

Punch Gran Puro Santa Rita

20

The Punch Gran Puro line came onto the scene 10 years ago and is General Cigar’s only Honduran puro, meaning that it uses only tobacco from Honduras. Blended around a proprietary dark Cuban-seed wrapper from the St. Augustín valley, this is a bold cigar that produces a very solid white ash as it burns. The highpriming leaves used for wrapper and binder are sun grown, resulting in dark, oily nicotine-rich tobacco that is also full of strength and flavor. Like all Punch cigars, it’s made in Danlí at the Honduras American Tobacco factory (HATSA). Over the last 10 years, the brand has only seen minimal price increases and is always competitively positioned in terms of suggested retail price.

This year, the near-black Santa Rita size is the very definition of bargain smoke, offering all the richness and flavor of a cigar that could easily cost three times as much.
