The popular Punch Knuckle Buster Habano is getting a line extension in the form of a hefty new vitola. Dubbed “Stubby,” the new Knuckle Buster is a short gordo at 4.5 X 60. Note, that Stubby is only available in the Habano version of the Knuckle Buster line (and not the Maduro series). It is scheduled to reach retailers the first week of April.

Punch Knuckle Buster Habano Stubby Blend Information

The Punch Knuckle Buster Habano Stubby is almost a Nicaraguan puro, which is somewhat of a departure from traditional Punch cigars. Stubby features a Nicaraguan Habano wrapper, a Nicaraguan Habano binder, and Nicaraguan Habano filler tobacco –– in addition to Honduran Habano tobacco.

John Hakim, Brand Manager for Punch had this to say about the new release:

“Punch Knuckle Buster Habano Stubby packs a punch…or more like a jab. The Stubby delivers what fans loved about Knuckle Buster Habano in a new 'stubby' size. And since we mentioned wrestling, Knuckle Buster Habano Stubby is like the Iron Shiek’s Camel Clutch – it’s bold, it’s complex and it wraps up at just the right time.”

Knuckle Buster Habano Stubby’s tasting notes include caramel, pepper, and almond; it is a medium-bodied smoke.

Punch Knuckle Buster Habano Stubby Pricing & Availability

Punch Knuckle Buster Habano Stubby will be a full-time addition to the Knuckle Buster line. Knuckle Buster Habano also comes in three other sizes: Gordo, Toro, and Robusto. SRP per stick for Stubby is $5.39. It is available in boxes of 20, which will feature the classic Punch Knuckle Buster logo and branding. Stubby is heading to retailers nationwide starting April 1.

    My younger brother is a big Punch fan. I've always enjoyed them when looking for a tasty, medium-strength smoke. 👍

    I find most Punch cigars to be a very full bodied smoke.

      I would agree that they are quite bold. My experience is that I got a medium stick. It would more full than what I thought as medium. Not sure if I'm just getting used to what medium or full actually are or I'd their scale is tilted.
