    Punch Double Coronas

    Origin : CubaPunch
    Format : Double Corona (Prominente)
    Size : 194 x 19.45 mm
    Ring : 49
    Weight : 17.86 g
    Price : ~$18/piece

    A pleasurable lengthy smoke, with a lot of distinctive aromas: wood and earth for the first phase, the Punch Double Coronas keeps going with some honey touches and becomes more and more powerful without being too strong. Occasionally, the end can have some light citrus notes. The tempo is ‘tranquil’ and provides all the magnificence of this master piece.

    Appearance : [rating:4.5/5]
    A big cigar – not as big as the Bolivar Belicoso but excellent nevertheless. When you’re opening the box, the aroma is really intoxicating, it must be the signature of Punch Double Coronas. The wrapper’s almost rough to the touch.

    On lighting, there was plenty of smoke and a pretty good burn.

    Flavor : [rating:4/5]
    When lighting, the first thing that hits you is an almost black-cherry aroma that soon gives way to a most decadent flavor and aroma that is truly the signature of a Punch, a well aged Punch. It also has a great cedar, spicy taste.

    Value : [rating:4/5]
    Most good Prominentes are in this price range, so nothing to whine about… You will get a cigar worth every penny you paid for it.

    This might very well be the best Prominente available. The main key is to make sure that they have at least a couple years of age on them. This earthy full-bodied cigar is an excellent way to spend an hour and a half! If you have not tried the Punch Double Coronas you should do yourself a favor and smoke one.

      The Cuban Punch double corona, to me, is the best Cuban I’ve ever smoked! The wrapper was tangy and the taste from the first draw was a religious experience. My problem is being to find them. I’ve only found one site so far that even had them, and because the descriptions for nearly every cigar was the same, I had serious doubts the site was legit, so didn’t want to spend $330 on a box and not have it be genuine. But i can understand the inability to get them — their rep precedes them and people must buy them all up as soon as they come in. Still hoping finest Cuban Cigar (.com) gets some in — singles preferably so I can afford some. But if you ever see one for sale in countries where they’re legal to buy, do not pass up the chance to smoke this truly great Cuban cigar.

      I haven’t had the opportunity to sample a recent production DC, but I did recently smoke a well cared for 2003 stick; although it burned very well, I thought it was rather mellow and, perhaps, a bit bland. I had paired it with coffee; I’ll try another soon and pair it with water, just in case.

      Sorry for so many postings, but I find myself just plain “loitering” in the Punch area, drooling over that which I cannot have!

      Got a box or 2 coming–thx for the review!

      DCs are way too long for me.. Always have to light these up again a few times, this is annoying and the draw is usually very tight. I just don’t understand this format.

      The best Prominente?.. Not so sure about that.

    • CigFan

      I love this cigar, it is up there with the Hoyo Double Corona for the best of its size 🙂

    • Aficionado

      Yes, I would give it a 4.5/5. Good cigar that I enjoy from time to time..
