Sucker Punch cigars boast a full-flavored blend that hits you with a wallop of robust flavor when you least expect it. Seamlessly rolled in a silky Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper that caps a Nicaraguan ligero core and a Cameroon binder, the smoke is well-balanced and complex enough to keep you guessing what's coming next. That's the beauty of Sucker Punch...they HURT SO GOOD! Exceedingly affordable. Add some to your cart now and enjoy this knockout of a cigar that'll--WACK!!!

The new Sucker Punch blend from Punch is aptly named. It comes to you in a disarming pale, khaki, Claro wrapper looking for all the world like just another mild cigar, but its flavor, strength, and body place it squarely within the medium range. My general impression is of a spikier, less genteel version of the Punch Grand Cru Selection. The same dominant cedary note is present, along with a grassiness that is absent from the Grand Cru, and which I normally associate with younger filler tobaccos. I don't know this for sure, but I'm willing to bet the filler bunch here is not aged nearly as long as that of the Grand Cru. Also there is the wrapper itself, which evinces the longer finish and more pronounced nuttiness that I have come to expect from Connecticut Shade wrappers grown in Ecuador as opposed to those grown in the United States. The Grand Cru uses the U.S. variety, while the Sucker Punch uses the Ecuadorian. Overall, it is a pleasant and satisfying smoke with a slightly looser draw and faster burn than most Punch cigars. I personally don't find the grassy flavor objectionable, but if you do, I would guess six months to a year of aging will shave that right off. However, I would not age these beyond a couple years, maybe three at the very most. My experience has been that cigars in the lower medium range of strength and body can get rather bland rather quickly with long term aging.less

Don't smoke them until they have at least two weeks of humidor time. After that, you are good to go. Starts out very strong but settles down at halfway point. The flavor profile is delicious. Full of gooey caramel followed by cocoa and creaminess. I want more.less

This does start out as quite mild, but the flavor intensifies as you reach the last half or bottom third without becoming too harsh. Burn was even and consistent, although slightly fast. Overall, a pretty good smoke.less

Being a Punch fan for many years, these are a step away from their norm. Great morning cigar, light easy draw and smokeable to the nub.Unfortunately I never found the sucker punch they lay claim to, but maybe a left hook near the nub. They burn a little quicker than you would expect for a 52 ring size. Tasty and satisfying from start to finish, but I would have liked just a bit more strength. However this cigar fulfills a much needed void in the Punch lineup.less

I tried a 5 pack. The flavor was great. They actually get better as you smoke them. I think they get stronger nicotine towards the end but the flavor stays medium in strength. 3 of the 5 had a tight draw and 1 had twigs which my cutter had difficulty with so they could use attention in the construction department.less
