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.0 0
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.0 0
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!16 10
A Outstanding cigar, give it a try0 0
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.0 0
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.0 0
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.0 0
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.0 0
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 cigar0 0
