RE 2018 Asia Pacifico - Punch - 8-9-8

Havana Cigar Exchange - Worldwide Shipping of Cuban Cigars

It isn’t often you see a Lonsdale size in Cuba’s Regional Edition program, or in the entire Habanos portfolio for that matter, but the new Punch 8-9-8 made exclusively for the Asia Pacific region is precisely that: a long, slender cigar that measures 6 3/4 inches by 43 ring gauge.

Known as a dalia in Cuban cigar factories, the Punch 8-9-8 shares its dimensions with other Lonsdales such as the Cohiba Siglo V and the Partagás 8-9-8.

Traditional 8-9-8 cigars are so named for the way they’re packaged. Rather than two layers of cigars per box of 25, they are arranged in three layers: eight cigars on the bottom, nine in the middle and eight on top. The Punch 8-9-8 cigars, however, do not adhere to this format and are simply presented in a 10-count box.
