General Cigar Company has announced the Punch Signature has undergone a packaging change. Featuring the same blend, the new-look Punch Signature will begin reaching stores this month.

“Punch Signature represents the best of Central American cigars. It has a great blend and a medium-plus profile that people really love. This blend was out of stock recently while we updated the packaging so with pent-up demand and the new box design that really pops at retail, we’re sure Punch Signature is going to fly off the shelves,” commented senior brand manager Ed Lahmann in a press release.

The new packaging design eliminates the acrylic window on the original design of the box for the Punch Signature and replaces it with bi-fold panels that tell the story of the blend and expand the brand vista, optimizing the box for display on retailer shelves.
