With the upcoming Chinese New Year, General Cigar Company has released its fourth annual limited edition cigar to commemorate the occasion, the Punch Fu Manchu.

“Punch is keeping its Chinese New Year tradition alive. For the 2022 release, we went old school, replicating a maniacal kung fu master’s white hair and long goatee with a blonde cap and extended pigtail. Whether you’re watching Kung Fu Theatre or karate kicking back with friends, Fu Manchu breaks bricks on both flavor and price. Have fun with this one. It will go quickly,” commented Ed Lahmann Senior Brand Manager of Punch.

The Punch Fu Manchu is produced at Honduras American Tobacco S.A. (HATSA). It’s a five-country blend highlighted by a Honduran Habano wrapper, Indonesian binder, and fillers from Mexico, Nicaragua, and the Dominican Republic. The cigar is a 6 x 50 box-pressed Toro. The cigars are packaged in 20-count bundles in a takeout-style soup container box adorned with images of the Year of the Tiger. A total of 6,400 boxes have been produced. Pricing is set at $5.99 per cigar.

Punch Fu Manchu follows up 2021’s Kung Pow! (Year of the Ox), 2020’s Chop Suey (Year of the Rat), and 2019’s Punch Egg Roll (Year of the Pig)

Punch Fu Manchu is currently shipping to retailers.
