Punch Upper Cut

Characteristics Although this is one of the newest variations on this classic cigar, it still carries the traditional Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper, the Nicaraguan filler is joined by Ometepe leaf, which lends a subtle sweetness to a slightly bumped-up and more robust smoke, resulting in a medium-to-full flavor. Insider's Tip Ometepe tobacco comprises 30 percent of the filler blend, which gives more muscle to the Uppercut. The illustration on the cigar’s foot band pays tribute to this with an illustration of one of the two volcanoes (one of them still active) on the inland island of Ometepe. Three sizes are offered, of which the 6 x 45 Grand Corona is a real knockout. Note Prices are per cigar and average suggested retail and do not reflect local or state taxes.
