(Sp. model spelled same [pun,t∫e], of uncertain origin, possibly from an American Indian language)
   Carlisle: 1848. Referenced by Carlisle as a light, mild tobacco used and traded by Indians in the southwestern United States. Cobos indicates that it may refer to tobacco in general or to a "low-class, homegrown tobacco" cultivated in New Mexico. He notes that it is quite potent and is sometimes called punche mexicano.
