Had the pleasure of lighting up a pair of these bad boys with my father. The Punch Punch happens to be his longtime go-to for CCs.
From JUN 20 Box of 25 sourced from FOH (factory code unknown). Have never written up a review so bear with me here!
Initial aromas consisting cedar and some fruit sugar with an beautiful hue to the wrapper
First part comes in easy with notes of cedar, leather, and light fruitiness. Draw is perfect so far.
As we progress, notes of mesquite wood begin to take form with a hint of dark chocolate coming through. Combining a nice silky smoke feel, the flavors really start to shine without becoming overpowering. Each puff lets you sit there and contemplate if you have any idea about properly tasting this incredible stick 🙃
Getting towards an ending that I wish was farther away....The leather notes being to come back to the front of my palate, along with some floral notes. As it starts to burn hotter, the young tastes of a Cuban begin to show, but are still delicious.
For a rating, I'll shoot my shot at giving it a score out of 100... but for me, it's not just about the cigar, but enjoying it with the people you get to smoke with.
92/100...great and consistent CC that I had the opportunity to enjoy with my father
*My father claims this to be the best Punch Punch he has smoked, but he seems to say that about every cigar I bring over to smoke with him 🤷♂️*
