Every time I light one of these, I m reminded of why I smoke cigars in the first place. For my money, punch makes the most consistent, best tasting and affordable cigars you can get. Maybe you get a dud every twenty or so cigars, maybe. I do like variety, so of course I have other sticks in thew humidor. But every time I light a punch it s like coming home.
These are without a doubt my favorite smoke. The size, flavor and draw are perfect, I see no reason to look and further.
I ve only bought a single 5 - pack of these thus far - but have greatly enjoyed each one. This is the most robust of the cigars I ve tried in my recent return to cigar smoking. The flavor, which I consider robust, is highly complex and with a really nice, slowly disappearing aftertaste. Unfortunately the only red wine around the house can t quite stand up to the flavor of this cigar. I ve had a bottle of a merlot that is very dark red, drier and more tannic, a taste and appearance that I associate more with a cabernet. After a couple of nice puffs of the Punch Pita the wine is overpowered - a plus in my estimation, as the particular drink is sort of hard to enjoy without the help of this cigar or a moderately strong - flavored cheese. Consistency , though only noted via 5 cigars is excellent. Like another corona I ve tried recently, the Pita burn becomes much cooler and more refreshing with a brief rest, and the rich flavor and aroma become more accessible. Each has lasted an hour and five to ten minutes. That is a fine bit of time for me to sit on my covered porch and listen to and watch the rain at night - so the Punch Pita has become a small ritual of much contemplative pleasure. Will buy more, certainly.
Right off the bat it’s a beautiful cigar, a real work of art. The burn on the ones I’ve smoked so far has been extreamly consistent, you couldn’t ask for a more even burn on a cigar. The construction was immaculate, no hard knots, no soft spots they aren’t wet or spongy at all. The draw is smooth and clean and the taste on the dry draw was smooth, the second draw after just warming the foot starts to bring out the warm earthy tones in it, and with the light and the retrohail you really begin to get the smokey peat and earth flavor with a muted sweetness to it. It really comes together like a nice Islay Scotch.
These cigars are as good if not better than any thing in it s class.
Great flavors of Coffee,Cream,and Spices!!!...My everyday Cigar!!!!!!
These cigarillos are great. The taste is not mild and not harsh. Just right. Out of 200 cigars in the last order, only 3 were tough to draw. Just used the old paper clip and off you go. These are made of long grain tobacco so no spitting pieces all over. Love the smell when you open the case of 20, MMMM.No bad taste in your mouth and the smoke is pleasant. Very nice for a quick smoke and when its done I just roll it around for awhile. Have tried many different brands and these are the best. Punch me up. Also, love the fact they are not individually wrapped, you just open the box! Nicer smoke than many of the more expensive brands. Never had a bitter one or one with a big hard chunk in the middle like other more pricey ciggarillos. Have been smoking 50 years, only cigars. Changed to these Punchs a few years ago. These are it!!!
While I live in the northern climes, I still like to enjoy a nightly cigar. A 6 x 60 is great for a summer evening... but when it s 25 degrees, I need something that smokes a bit quicker. The London Club is a perfect fit! It s a tasty cigar with great construction and an even draw. They pair nicely with a hearty stout or beaker of whiskey.
A great little smoke and all the taste punch has to offer. will keep smoking them.
