The Punch Bassmaster Tackle Box Cigar Set Consists Of Four Unique SticksThe Punch Bassmaster Tackle Box cigar set consists of the brand’s most respected blends and is a perfect way to get introduced to the legendary stogie maker. It’s one of the oldest tobacco brands in history and has been around since 1840. The company derives its name from the Punch and Judy puppet show, which was an attempt to draw in British aficionados. Since 1969, the brand has rolled its sticks out of the Villazon factory, located in Honduras. Around this time, the company also shifted its focus to producing a range of affordable and widely available smokes. The transition was successful for the brand, which has created a number of excellent blends, several of which are available in this set.

The Punch Bassmaster Tackle Box cigar set consists of four sticks, each of a different blend. They include the brand’s Gran Cru Maduro (5 1/5 x 50 Robusto), Gran Cru Natural (5 5 1/5 x 50 Robusto), Gran Puro (5 1/2 x 54 Rancho) and Natural (5 1/5 x 54 Magnum). With the company’s old Cuban roots, it’s only natural that each of the sticks is built beautifully and with a stamped gold and red label. And for the fishermen out there, the set also comes with a limited edition Cotton Cordell fishing lure. 

The Gran Cru Maduro has a Double Maduro from Nicaragua, a Connecticut Broadleaf binder and fillers from Honduras, Nicaragua, and the Dominican. It is a medium-full smoke that ramps up in power near the end, so it is for more experienced aficionados. Flavors include cocoa, spice, cream, black pepper and even a little mint.

The Gran Cru Natural has a Connecticut Shade wrapper and several fillers, including plants from Honduras, Nicaragua, and the Dominican. Compared to the brand’s other smokes, it’s on the milder side, but still reaches medium strength near the end of the stick. Its flavors include some caramel, spice, graham and a touch of cinnamon. One reviewer likened it to pumpkin pie. 

The Gran Puro is, unsurprisingly, a Honduran Puro that is a bit heftier than the rest of the bunch. All of the plants in the Punch Bassmaster Tackle Box cigar set are sun-grown, and it’s extremely well-built. It’s a medium-full stogie that also increases in strength as it smokes down, and its flavors consist of some black pepper, sweet earth, and cinnamon notes.

The Natural is produced with an Ecuadorian Sumatra, a Connecticut Broadleaf binder and fillers from Nicaragua, the Dominican, and Honduras. It’s right down the middle in strength, and it produces a number of flavors, including salt, natural tobacco, leather, and spice.

In all, Punch sticks are known for their power and range of flavors, and with this set of stogies, it is clear why the company has earned the reputation it has.
