  4. I love punch, but did not like this cigar. The previous Punch LE was good, and in fact the best LE I have ever smoked. Maybe they will age well but at this price almost twice of the PPP it doesn't make much sense.
  5. My favorite robusto of all time, as I have mentioned on the forum before. Also one of my favorite regionals. I wish I was deeper.
  6. You could imagine my surprise when I opened the box to see old style bands... I didn't check the box code before opening them 😱. I was fully expecting 2017+
  7. The PL are solid. I've only smoked one, but it was true PL flavor. Fell apart in the final third but that's to be expected at this point. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    bump.... any new recommendations?
  11. Thank you! EMail will be sent now!
  12. I have only tried the Red and ZS lines. The red lancero and lonsdale are good, albeit powerful cigars. But, yes no more online sales.
  13. I believe it is the same size. With the trade show coming up this week I expect some more news in terms of new cigars and expansion.
  14. Great build and a stunning, smooth, oily, wrapper. Drink pairing of a mojito made with Havana Club 3 year. Palio cut, and Dupont light. When lighting there are roasted pecans and almonds on the pallet. Floral aspects through the nose, a touch of ginger. The draw is firm until the burn spreads to the bulb of the salamones where it opens up quite nicely. Floral develops on the pallet along with honey sweetness. No harsh notes at all, perfect draw and construction thus far. Deeper into the bulb of the first third the cigar adds intensity. The honey sweetness develops further and molts into a caramel. More intensity. Floral pecan pie. Caramel sweetness, buttery pie crust, flowers, toasted pecans. The ash falls in the beginning of the second third. Floral notes fade into the background and then the sweet, caramel, nutty, pecan notes take center stage. These notes continue throughout the second third until the ash falls for the second time. At the beginning of the final third the floral aspects that were present in the beginning come back, flooding of flowers especially through the retro inhale. The same company of flavors continue through the final third until there is about an inch left where the flavor and smoke turns hot signifying the time for the cigar to be laid down. The Mojito drink pairing with the mint and lime was perfect for this cigar. IMHO a peaty single malt may have been too overpowering for the flavor profile of this cigar. Hands down the best cigar I have smoked this year in the sub $20 price range. Only aged or HTF cubans have rivaled this cigar for me over the past year. "I don't like noncubans." This is what I tell myself and many other cigar smokers as well. This cigar is exceptional. There is no other way to put it. If I was handed this cigar with with no bands I would peg it as a PERFECTLY blended LGC/PL salamones regional. As we all know though perfectly blended regionals, that are true to their marca, are not a common occurrence. 96 points If you happen across these in a cigar shop, buy the box. If you don't like it I'll buy the rest from you.
