The iconic General Cigar Company is celebrating the Year of the Tiger with the release of a hot new premium offering, called Punch Fu Manchu cigars. This is the fourth installment to a highly popular series of cigars that draws its inspiration from Asian culture and its cuisine, in celebration of the Lunar New Year. For 2022, the cigar is available in just one beautifully box-pressed 6x50 Toro that starts off with Dominican, Nicaraguan, and Mexican long fillers held together by a tasty Indonesian binder. Then, for the perfect finishing touch, theses deeply aged tobaccos are covered by a stunning reddish brown Honduran Habano wrapper that has an extended pigtail that runs down the front of the cigar, reminiscent of the long braid worn by the Dr. Fu Manchu character. Staying in theme with Asian cuisine, the cigars are packaged in cylindrical takeout-style soup container boxes adorned with the Year of the Tiger imagery on every box. The end result is a smoke with flavors of earth, nougat, black tea, leather, and toasted almonds, that provide a delicious full-bodied experience that’s truly unlike any other. With production limited to 6,400 boxes of 20 , we highly recommend that order your Fu Manchu cigars from yours truly today, so that you don’t miss out on these artisanal beauties from Punch.
