A high quality Petit Corona, that's for sure. This cigar rarely disappoints, only if you're unlucky enough to get the one with a very tight draw - in this case, it becomes unsmokeable (happened to me once).
Pleasant appearance, Punch Petit Coronas del Punch looks and feels very neat and accurate.
The construction and burn are impeccable, very slow burning (took over one hour to finish it), with lots of very aromatic smoke, in the classic bitter-sweet Punch style.
Medium to full flavor, medium bodied, earthy and slightly sweet and a (quite strong) hint of spice in the last two thirds.
Unfortunately, I think that it becomes harder and harder to find real good Punch cigars... I heard a few rumours that new ones were nothing close compared to, say, 2001 vitolas. Let's hope it's not true and have fun while we can!
Overall Rating :
I gotta say this cigar is a must try for anyone. I was very impressed by the depth of flavour and cool easy smoking of Punch Petit Coronas, it was really worth a try. Delicious to smoke after a hearty lunch, with a nice bourbon.
