Cigar News: Punch Cigars to “Spring” in the Year of the Rabbit with LE Spring Roll

Punch will kick off The Year of the Rabbit with a limited-edition smoke called Spring Roll.

The new release marks the fifth installment of the brand’s highly successful Chinese New Year Series which has included these sought-after Punch blends:

  • Fu Manchu (2022)
  • Kung Pow! (2021)
  • Chop Suey (2020)
  • Egg Roll (2019)

John Hakim, brand manager of Punch said;

“Punch Spring Roll is like a three-course meal: It delivers a great smoking experience in a size that really brings the blend to life, and it comes at a price point that hits the post-holiday sweet spot for cigar lovers. Paying homage to the original, Spring Roll is the yin to Egg Roll’s yang. Since the Year of the Rabbit is said to bring good fortune, we invite Punch fans to kick back and let the good times Spring Roll.”

Handmade at the HATSA factory in Danli, Honduras, Punch Spring Roll is a five-country blend described as:

  • Wrapper – Ecuadorian Sumatra
  • Binder – USA Broadleaf
  • Filler – Dominican Republic, Colombia, Mexico and USA (Broadleaf)

The Punch Spring Roll (4.5” x 50) has and an MSRP of $5.90/cigar and feature the signature shaggy foot and come in 25-count “takeout” boxes inspired by the packaging of Punch Egg Roll which kicked off the Chinese New Year series.

The compnay notes that the smoking experience is richly spiced, with notes of leather and a natural sweetness that comes from the cigar’s Ecuadoran-grown wrapper.

Limited to 5,000 boxes, Spring Roll will ship on February 1.
