The Grand Cru cigar series from Punch is their top of the line, crafted from vintage tobaccos aged from 4-5 years.
Made in Honduras, Grand Cru cigars are satisfying and robust in taste, yet with a sweet bouquet and silky smooth draw. Gorgeous, golden brown wrappers highlight a select, complex and refined cigar worthy of your attention.
Punch Gran Cru received a well-deserved 93-rating noting: "Squarely pressed with a dark wrapper, this torpedo delivers a pleasant mix of spice, licorice and wood that builds to a tarry finish."
In '07 I put the Punch Grand Cru in my top 5 favorite smokes for that year. 8 years later, guess what?... They're still in my top 5!... I tried this cigar in the maduro wrapper, but it fell flat by comparison to the Punch Grand Cru Natural. My preference is the robusto size of this truly elegant, flavorful, and memorable cigar. And it's hard to beat CI on the price of these beauties.
