The Punch Punch sports a delicious and quite oily maduro wrapper. It had a couple of major veins.
I easily cut it and lit it up. The draw was fine and I only needed one correction keep the burn straight. The pre-draw deploys spice and honey flavors.
The first puffs are cedary like a good classic Cuban, with just a hint of spice. The start is quite mild but the power increases little by little. In the second third, I feel some leather notes and the stick is getting stronger, it's still medium-bodied though. The final third is rather earthy and close to full-bodied. Nice flavor, but a little uni-dimensional.
At a little bit over $7 per stick, I am not disappointed.
Overall Rating :
Although not as complex as the best corona gordas in the league, the Punch Punch is a remarkable cigar. I really enjoyed it. Recommended.
