If you could ask one question of the current co-presidents of Habanos S.A, Inocente Núñez and Luis Sánchez-Harguindey Pardo de Vera, it probably wouldn't be, "Why call this cigar the Punch Punch Punch?" I mention this because you'd think that the moniker of a cigar being repeated three times would bring it attention over the years, but ever since the Punch 48, Asia-Pacific Regional Edition Punch 8-9-8 and the new regular production cigar, the Punch Short de Punch came out, I can't help but feel that the Punch Punch Punch has lost a little (or a lot) of its limelight.

 

I've often wondered the same thing.  The name is a bit of a doozy sometimes and maybe I just haven't smoked enough of the vintage ones to know the "Punch" behind it and rather usually get those peanutty notes, but in regards to the name, it seems a bit redundant..

Great review here and thanks for your tasting notes.  I agree that the Punch Punch is being slightly overshadowed by the newer releases as you mentioned and do hope HSA puts as much vested interest into this classic as they seem to be doing with the newer releases of this marca. It's a staple cigar for sure and wish for it not to be 86'd from their future lineups.  Could just be me being skeptical, but all good things come to an end at some point.

Agree. I’ve got the same box code and never had them before. Very tasty

The cigar wouldn’t stay lit but the few puffs I had had a very nice burnt marshmallow flavor

I was about to say, how many cabs do you have of that PP, as I have seen you post that cigar many times with that code. They are great cigars, wish I got a cab when they were around.
Enjoy Gary
