Punch Punch Tubo Habano review

Brand name: Punch Punch Tubo
Country of Origin: Cuba
Size: 143 mm x 46
Shape: Corona Gordo
Box date: April 2013

Appearance/ construction

Earthy in appearance, a slight fault in the foot. Rustic appeal , somewhat oily to touch, firm cap. Love the presentation of the tube, very striking. 
3.8 out of 5 
Flavor/Taste and Aroma

Initially milder than I expected with a slightly nutty and sweet first third. Very little spice, smooth. Nice start to the cigar. Medium in my view. Enjoyable at the start, let’s savor the moment. 
Smoking Characteristics:

Easy draw, no burn issues but not quite uniform, still very smooth but spice now kicking in, losing the sweetness and getting edgy , more flavor, more complex. Ash is solid.

As we smoked further into the cigar, pepper was the name of the game. Construction faltered a bit as we needed a re light.

Conclusion/Overall Impression

A good smoke with an uneven taste profile. The last third was still peppery but smooth. It burned a bit hotter at the end .  I certainly would buy them again but would not be a go to cigar on a regular basis.
A cigar for the experienced with a classic Cuban twist.
For those who like counting:
Burn: 3.5 out of 5
Flavor: 3.8 put out of 5
Construction: 3.8 out of 5
Overall : 3.6 out of 5

Keep smoking
