Punch Announces Spring Roll Limited-Edition for Year of the Rabbit

January 5, 2023 By Matthew Tabacco



Punch will kick off The Year of the Rabbit with a limited-edition smoke called Spring Roll. The new release marks the fifth installment of the brand’s highly successful Chinese New Year Series which has included these sought-after Punch blends: Fu Manchu (2022), Kung Pow! (2021), Chop Suey (2020) and Egg Roll (2019).

John Hakim, brand manager of Punch said, “Punch Spring Roll is like a three-course meal:  It delivers a great smoking experience in a size that really brings the blend to life, and it comes at a price point that hits the post-holiday sweet spot for cigar lovers. Paying homage to the original, Spring Roll is the yin to Egg Roll’s yang. Since the Year of the Rabbit is said to bring good fortune, we invite Punch fans to kick back and let the good times Spring Roll.”

Handmade at the HATSA factory in Danli, Honduras, Punch Spring Roll is a five-country blend featuring filler tobaccos from the Dominican Republic, Colombia, Mexico and the USA (Broadleaf), with a USA Broadleaf binder and an Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper. The smoking experience is richly spiced, with notes of leather and a natural sweetness that comes from the cigar’s Ecuadoran-grown wrapper.

Punch Spring Roll cigars feature the signature shaggy foot and come in 25-count “takeout” boxes inspired by the packaging of Punch Egg Roll which kicked off the Chinese New Year series.

Limited to 5,000 boxes, Spring Roll will ship on February 1. Punch Spring Roll is a 4.5″ x 50 and carries an MSRP of per cigar $5.99.
