CNY - Punch petit coronations tubo - EML JUN 13

Recommended Posts

This was the first from a box of 25, gifted to me by my BIL this past summer. Weather's too cold to smoke outside, and this is a good indoor winter smoke, a petite corona 117 x 40.

Pairing: hot tea with sugar.

Appearance: rustic looking, with a colorado wrapper, looks ok. I notice that aged Habanos have that wrinkled look to the wrapper.

Cold draw: gave it a punch cut, but the draw was tight, so straight cut it and it opened up, giving a cream and tobacco cold draw

1st half: initial draws - creamy twang and a sweet spice, with a dry finish. Wood and some sweetness appearing as the 1st half progressed.

This is medium bodied with a perfect burn line and ample smoke output. Nice twang, wood, some sweetness. There is some earth in here too.

Mild spice coming in. Leather makes an appearance. Seems like each puff produces different flavors, which keeps me interested and looking forward to the next puff.

2nd half: flavors intensify, with wood, twang and mild spice with a dry finish, earth and some subtle sweetness in the background. Leather is present too. Strength was just under medium, body was medium.

Overall this was a pleasant smoke, taking me about 60 minutes. My rating for it is 87. It has just over 4 years of age, and I wonder what more time will do to it.

Happy new year.
