Wrapper was nice held up well and pull was also nice but flavor was not. Felt like I was smoking a very cheap cigar bad after taste.
Good middle of the road stick in my opinion. I don t have a very sophisticated pallet, but to me it was a nice medium/mellow slightly sweet natural tobacco flavor. Was a bit strong on the retro so limited how much I did that. I would be curious to see what some time in the humi does if I end up with another one down the road. Overall good smoke
I really like smaller cigars that have larger depth. Some days I don t have a couple of hours to really enjoy a quality stick, so I like to keep a selection of smaller ones at hand. This stick is short, and can go in under an hour. But it has a lot of depth.
Very well packaged. The sticks are quality built and the draw is consistent & open without collapsing any time throughout the smoke. The taste has a nice simple spicy flavor that is not overwhelming. You can definitely buy more complex smokes, or similar sticks that might burn a little slower, but for the money these have been very good deal. I would definitely buy them again.
Smoked a few of these. All of them had that strong sun grown taste. Wood and light coffee components. What I am amazed by is its long long long slightly bitter but in a great way sun grown finish. Great to pair with a slightly peety scotch. Overall great cigar if you like a long finish. All had a slight burn issue but touch ups did not tamper with the flavor to much. If you can get this for under $5.00 a stick it is a great value cigar. Hats off to Alec Bradley on another value winner!
Got a freebie with my last order. Torched it after only a couple days in the humidor. I ve had regular Punch in the past, and wasn t fond of it. I m also not a fan of Corojo wrappers, but this was very different. Very pretty stick, nice aroma, leathery flavor with slight sweetness, full but not overwhelming, very pleasant, I thought it was a Rosado or Habano before I checked the specs. Draw was perfect, with nice plumes of smoke. Burned very evenly until the last couple of inches, and only needed a brief touch up. It burned about 1.5 hours. I ll probably want to try a couple more before I buy a box, but is definitely on the wish list.
Great new product from Punch. Well built, even burn. Flavor is somewhere in between a Punch Punch EMS and a Punch Rare Corojo. Consistent through all thirds.
nice cigar same taste through out the cigar. nice even burn
one of the best I have had. Draw is a little tight when they are new, leave them in the humidor for a couple of weeks and they loosen up nicely, great flavour profiles. a great go to cigar.
It s listed as a full cigar but I found it to be lighter around medium. Hints of wood and spice. Easy draw and even burn. Construction was perfect. Good Cigar!
Have had these several times when they come on sale. Always enjoyed them. When you can get them for under $4 each, they are a good deal.
I have smoked 9 of these cigars and every one of them had the same qualities. Good construction, good burn, and great flavor. The Maduro is mild and enjoyable with nice hints of spice including clove and cinnamon. Starts mild and finishes strong without becoming bitter or hot, this will be a go to cigar for me for years to come.
