Is every Cuban perfect or do we like to over hype them? Here is a review of the famed Punch Punch which might sway your view of Cuban cigars
Brand name: Punch Punch Tubo
Country of Origin: Cuba
Size: 143 mm x 46
Shape: Corona Gordo
Box date: April 2013
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.
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.
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.
