Punch Diablo

John Devilishly Good

This yummy concoction, released at the 2018 IPCPR Trade Show, is made by AJ Fernandez in partnership with General Cigar Co. From first glance, Punch Diablo draws you in with its exquisite aesthetics. In my personal opinion, the wrapper is flawless, that’s what drew me to it right off the bat, and the unique artwork certainly didn’t hurt. Also, knowing that it is made by AJ, you know that you will be getting a cigar that is carefully crafted and perfectly blended.

So let’s get into the meat of it all. This beauty hails from Nicaragua. It has a Connecticut Broadleaf binder, contains Honduran and Nicaraguan long-fillers, and is all dressed up with an Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper. Punch Diablo is not for the novice cigar enthusiast. It is, by all accounts, as full-bodied as they come…and better enjoyed after a hardy meal. I was met with bold flavors of cocoa, white pepper, and a powerful sweet spice that last for the duration of the cigar. It comes in boxes of 25 for the Toro and Robusto, but the Gordo is presented in boxes of 20. With an everyday potential margin of up to 48%, this will be a great add on to any store shelf.
