This vitola, with a 50 ring gauge x 120 mm in length, offers a new option for those who prefer thick-gauge Habanos, this being the first 50 ring gauge to be incorporated within the brand.
On the other hand, the Punch brand, which was born in the XIX century, is one of the oldest Habanos brands. It was created by Don Manuel Lopez de Juan Valle, with the intention of entering the English market. For this reason, the brand owes its name to a humoristic publication that was trendy at that time in England, Mr. Punch.
