Punch Rothschild (Cello)
The Punch Rothschild Maduro w/cello offers Punch's classic Honduran, Nicaraguan and Dominican blend draped in a dark, oily Maduro wrapper for rich taste with a semi-sweet finish. The cello wrappers make it easy to put the cigars in your pocket or case without damaging them.
One of these found its way into my humidor. I smoked this on a 30 minute ride to a gig. A strong cigar that leaves you with that full belly feeling. Lots of smoke. Burn was superb and the ash held on for over half the length of this short cigar, with the windows down driving 45mph. Taste was to my uneducated palate somewhat nutty with lots of spice, but my experience with fuller strength smokes is somewhat limited. I'll definitely buy more.
An OK cigar. Had one at a cigar shop that actually tasted alot better. Waited until about half way down for the 'real' taste to kick in. Would smoke one again if it was given to me, dont think I would buy another pack.
I have smoked 4 of these cigars and have mixed feelings about them. The construction and appearance is nearly perfect. They are wrapped tight and look flawless, causing you to expect a even burn. But so far the ones I have smoked have all burned unevenly. They start burning perfect until the ash falls off for the first time, then it is all down hill from there. All 4 have canoed severely down to my fingers after that initial ash. The taste is great and consistent on all 4 so far. All in all I guess they are worth the reasonable price.
