I've been dryboxing this Punch Punch for last 10 days. Today was the perfect moment to light its up. I need to say, it's my third from the box. Today I was seeing with one of my friends, manager in local LCDH. Spontaneously this meeting has grown to local CA meeting (here in Poland we have forum, like FOH but smaller, it has 13 years; we were laugh that it's our small FOCSA, stand for Forumowe Ogólnopolskie Spotkanie Cigar Aficionado - Forums Cigar Aficionados' meeting. Punch Punch is defienietly what I'm looking for when we are talking about size. I prefer under 50 RG. It's started with typical tabacco/cigarette flavour. I was a little suprised but after five minutes it gave me what stands out Punch Punch from habanos portfolio to me. It was something like baked bread. In the second third it showed its strength. Rich woody, herbal and earthy profile with baked bread crust. I think I would always find that profile in blind tests. The last third was mostly dominated by earthy notes. I smoked this to the nub. I saw in the past that people finds vanilla. To be honest, I've never felt that in cigars. Anyway, it was very pleasant 90 minute smoke. In my personal reviews it's got 90 points! Very nice
Unsure code on this, I won it in a bundle from a contest here. Great construction, good sheen, nice barnyard smell. Toasted and lit well, fairly even burn throughout. Tried to smoke it slow, didn't get exact timings, but 45mins-hr. Subtle tastes, I get a little cedar, some light cocoa/chocolate and little bit of spice/pepper. Mostly cocoa and cedar. But nothing overpowering and not too strong/harsh. Good cigar, not great, maybe mid 80's for me. I haven't had too many EL's, so unsure if this is a good indicator, I have had Punch Punch's several times and have always enjoyed those.
