Following the successful introduction of Punch Deluxe in 1990, cigar master Frank Llaneza decided to create a counterpoint to that richest of Punch cigars. The result, Punch Grand Cru, was introduced four years later to give smokers another taste to enjoy within the Punch family. Often called the pride of the Punch line as well as the silkiest of Hondurans, Punch Grand Cru owes much of its smooth-smoking qualities to its elegant Connecticut Shade wrapper and its unique blend of super-premium Honduran tobaccos. In addition, the Maduro versions of Punch Grand Cru are made with the darkest Connecticut Broadleaf wrappers. Punch Grand Cru is a cigar to savor on those occasions when you can take all the time in the world to give it your undivided attention and appreciation.
