A powerful little knockout of a cigar. First few draws can be a little bitter, found a few months in the humidor eliminates that. Overall a great smoke if you prefer a heavy Honduran.
Whenever purchasing a new cigar, I buy 3 or more just to see if each smokes consistent to the others. I purchased 3 Champions, smoking them over a two week period. This stick has a very nice taste, but I was ultimately disapointed in the very uneven burn. Each stick canoed so badly I wasted about 1/2 of each cigar. I felt it might be worth buying again but this time, from another cigar shop. I repeated my prior experience with the same results ! It's really a shame because I like Punch and especially the taste of the Champion but probably will not buy again.
Very smooth cigar for a full body. No bitter pepper after taste. Smokes smooth with lots of smoke on the draw. Recommend for those ready to step up to a REAL cigar.
SMOKEDMY FIRST TWO 'CHAMPIONS' THIS WEEK. THE FLAVOR IS OUTSTANDING BUT I FIND THEM A BIT TOO MILD. I AM BIG ON THE PUNCH OSCURO LINE. HOW-EVER, I'LL NOT TURN DOWN THE CHAMPION LINE.SURPRISED ME.
I bought four from a local store (at the usual California twice the price routine)... the purveyor said I would be pleasantly surprised. These gems are fabulous, good draw, slow burn, great long ash and not a runner in the bunch, perfect construction and 2 full hours on a 4 1/2 inch stick. About the only problem is they burn so slow you may have to relight a couple of times during your smoke... 2 hours of dynamite PACKED IN A POWERFULL short round!
A Outstanding cigar, give it a try
A great and consistent little smoke. Not too strong, but strong enough. I ve only had about 1 in 10 burn weird. Good bang for your buck.
I love all the punch rare corojo sticks, especially the perfecto shapes. Perhaps the best cigars that general cigars make. Very nice medium flavor, smooth and tasty.
Tried my first one just recently and was pleasantly impressed. Good firm white ash. If smoked slowly you will enjoy a very good relaxing smoke. Great Construction.
I was surprised about this little smoke. Great flavors, smooth, and perfect if you only have about 30-40 minutes for a smoke. Smoke two if you have more time.
This is my favorite smoke. Slow even burning with gobs of white smoke. I love the figurado shape. I will light one up and it will burn for over an hour. A mediun to strong flavor. I highly recomend this cigar
