General Cigar Brings Six-Pack of Punch to Tailgate Party

As football season continues to heat up, General Cigar Co. is tapping into the tailgate market, offering half a dozen Honduran-made Punch cigars, along with a cigar cutter and bottle opener, all delivered in a package designed to look like a classic six-pack of beer.

The pack retails for $24.99 and includes these six smokes: Punch Champion, Punch Double Maduro Champion, Punch Rare Corojo Champion, Punch Grand Cru Maduro Robusto, Punch Elite Robusto, and Punch Deluxe Robusto.

From now until December 28, General will also be giving away one six-pack each day, plus a grand-prize winner will receive five boxes of Punch cigars, a Char-Broil Grill2Go grill, gift cards to StubHub and the Chicago Steak Company, a tailgate lounger, a game table and a branded lighter and ashtray.
