“The Punch Gran Cru #2 is a delicious creamy smoke. Definitely a regular, and at CI prices, you can't afford not to get your hands on some.”
“You can't afford not to buy the (Punch Gran Cru) Diadema. A very well constructed cigar and a great smooth well balanced taste. Well worth it to add this to your luxury collection.”
“Beautiful construction and appearance with a firm ash and even burn. (Punch Gran Cru) A slightly firm draw keeps the burn slow. Costly, perhaps, but a very nice cigar.”
“Grabbed a handful of cashews, a good PA microbrew, and lit this top 5 of '08 cigar up (Punch Gran Cru) on Christmas Eve. This medium body smoke is extremely impressive! Notes of everything from nuts to chocolate, annis, leather, cinnamon, you name it... It's a veritable surprise per puff (and never disappointing at that). I can see why this is a "top of the line" Punch. Burn frame is perfect!! Place this one among CAO Italia, Petrus Reposado, CI Legends Yellow Label - a meal of a cigar, and RP Sun Grown as my tops for this year. Many thanks to CI!...”
“A nice medium-bodied cigar that has a very smooth draw, a silky smoke with no harshness. The aroma/flavor is a subdued nutty spiciness. I've only smoked about a box over the past few years, as I enjoy variety in my cigars, but I put the Grand Cru right up there with the Perdomo ESV, the Rocky Patel 1992, the H. Upmann, etc. If you were hesitant to try these Grand Cru's because Punch are considered full-bodied, know that Grand Cru's are the smoothest and most subtle of the Punch line.”
“Great smoke. Earthy-chocolate. Not my favorite, but very good.”
“This Cigar is at the top of my list (My list is limited to about $5/stick) I never let the humidor run out of Punch Grand Cru Maduro. I taste a dry Cocoa. Not "hot chocolate" cocoa but the dark, powdered cocoa used for baking. This cigar is perfect from the first to the last draw. Strength is on the heavy side of Medium but not harsh.”
