Punch Punch UTE MARCH 16 : Stopwatch :Corona Gorda


Cold draw dried fruit
On the nose faint floral
On the foot cocoa with floral notes

1/3

Getting a nice doughy element, on the retro I detect floral and a tiny bit of baker spice

This may be a long smoke I'm already 30mins in and only about an inch in.....not complaining

Some Roasted peanuts on the tongue, this has quite a long finish

2/3

About an hour in, started with a small wonky burn, and eventually went out, relight and all is good in the world again

Musty/damp element on the retro now, floral is all gone

3/3

Went out again

Floral has returned on the retro and now mustiness on the lips and tounge with some Rye flavor

Tar on the punch hole blech

Straight cut, which opens up the draw more and the "Cuban twang" flavor is just pouring out now

This had excellent construction, a snug, but not tight draw.

Ash held on about an inch at time.

Excellent smoke that is really smoking well right now.


Final smoke time 1hr 58 seconds 23a6019c1490ecd4448479aacbb3d17b.jpgf00c03ab79044c4da538b08050099e1a.jpgf0b6d88fe239c13b290a993d4cf6b4a5.jpg

*I'm very good looking, and great with rice.*

Feb 16 Mag 46. I have older 46's but I found this one first. 64 minutes. Had some wrapper cracking in the final third but it burned perfectly. Very tasty...

Last one I have to time of this particular size.
Found a full box at bottom of Coolerdor... Sneaky little fellas hiding from me.
On this 2003 Monti "C" EL the clock ticked off 54m55s
Was well worth the digging out to find them!

Here's one of my smokes from this weekend, a Punch Punch, from a 50 cab purchased on a recent 24:24. The draw was a bit loose, leading me to believe it would be a quick smoke. Total time, an enjoyable 67 minutes.

Punch punch, 2016, ROTT. My first one ever, comes in right at 1 hour 11 minutes. I was worried as I've heard mixed reviews, but I loved it. c0549cca4cce3cf16aeca07c43366a22.jpg

Went with a Punch Punch PET AGO 16. Best one so far from the box. Fruity, cedar, leather and a nice spice. If you want Cuban twang this is your cigar. 1 hr 6 mins. I will try to post up a review shorty. 1b55b98d7d77cdd9331458cc4ff76a23.png143102a4348ecdcc96985ed4e5f08e58.jpg

JL No. 1

Smoke time: 1 hour, 17 min.

 

Sad to say I'm nearly through this 2014 box, it has been excellent. I love the strong profile of the No. 2, but I think the 1 has taken its place as my favorite JL. I am not good at discerning or describing the flavors but it is more subtle and smoother than the JL 2 but has the same solid core flavor like the 2. However, where the 2 is a puncher, the 1 is a boxer. Thoroughly enjoyable smoke that I have savored each and every one.

 

Paired very well with the Slaine triple casket Irish in the picture, though I think my favorite pairing would be with the Balvenie Carib. Cask.

El prez, are we limited to one cigar? I already posted the time for my punch punch, but just realized I have a HdM that is a corona gorda. Just curious if it's one entry per cigar, or per person. Thanks

Okay, I need El Presidente's call on this one.  I have an HDM EE that I considered smoking for the stopwatch corona gorda challenge.  Some folks have said the EE is not a corona gorda, others have actually reviewed and submitted the EE.  Some websites label the EE corona gorda, others do not.  I'm so conflicted. . .

CA identifies the EE as a corona gorda.

Corona Gorda (6” x 50) The name literally means “fat corona;" it is also sometimes called a “Toro.”  This is one of the most popular sizes today, providing full flavor in a manageable amount of time.

For me, I personally prefer going by the traditional size of 46 x 143 (5.6"), as per CubanCigarWebsite.

Agree. Companies outside of Cuba tend to play a little fast and loose with identifying vitolas...

Cohiba Siglo IV - SEA OCT 15 - Total time: 1 hr 20 min (01:20:00) - With Ice Water

Spicy one, this one! Loved it! (does that count as a review?)

It got dark while I smoked it watching a variety of interesting YouTube videos on my back deck.
