Customer Reviews of “Punch Uppercut”
If you have tried Punch sticks and did not care for them, you may want to try the UpperCut. Very non typical Punch. I had the Robusto. Well made, no major veining, no hard/soft spots. I snipped the cap, the core of the stick looks to be a nice black tobacco surrounded by a nutmeg color leaf. Draw was a little on the light side but these are only one day off the truck. They need a week to settle back in, once hydrated they may firm up a little. Perfect burn, nice and symmetrical all the way to the band. Ash was a nice firm salt and pepper. I had about two inches of ash before it dropped off. Started with some cedar and light spice, leather came in about half way through with the sweet cedar falling off a bit. Last third the spice picked up but so did the cedar and some cocoa came out. It started on medium body side and finished more medium full to full. I need to let the box nap for a few weeks then go back to them but I can see getting another box. Nice construction, good flavor, super burn with a nice aromatic nose, not harsh at all. I liked it.

This is the first Punch cigar I've smoked in quite a wee while, certainly the first one of 2010. The Uppercut Toro is, in my view, an entirely worthwhile cigar with an excellent draw, excellent burning characteristics and excellent flavour. I don't smoke granola bars (stealing that line from Bill Cosby) so I don't know if the thing tastes like nuts, huckleberries or shoe leather, but I think it tastes like a very good cigar. Even the retail price isn't excessive at around $7, but it does take it out of the 'several a day' class, at least for me. I do plan to put several in the box, however. Do yourself a favour and try it.

Wow! I just might have a new favorite here, though the price will keep it reserved for special ocassions (thanks to CI though for keeping it within reach). Ometepe, OMG! I don't know if the Ometepe binder contributes to this cigar's unusual, but earthy and pleasant aroma and taste, but Uppercut has something different going for it that I just can't put my finger on. Solid burn throughout with spiciness that came then went and then came back again. I've liked Punch cigars in the past, but this was truly and literally a finger-burner for me.

I am smoking the Gran Corona right now and I have to say that the Punch Uppercut is a real knock-out. As a lover of Ometepe tobacco, this cigars is chalk full of it. This is Punch's best creation to date and I am quite impressed. The cigar is a nice medium body with bready wood flavors and sweet leather and cocoa. Construction is good and the wrapper is simply beautiful. The burn has something to be desired as the wrapper needs a touch up now and then so keep the lighter close by (my humi has been running a little high so that might be the problem). Bottom line, when you pick up a few Uppercuts, get a five pack (or a box) cause you will want to burn a few now and save a couple for later. I give this cigar a solid 90. If you like good cigars at a reasonable price, these are a must.

I just saw the price of a box here (of the Punch Uppercut Gran Toro) is less than $80 - which is what I paid on the bid site ... I bought it based on smoking just one from my local wine & beer store ... it was a really good, full bodied (lots of creamy smoke with an easy draw), medium strength, well made cigar, with interesting flavor (must be that Ometepe tobacco). Very tasty.

the aroma and flavor is very good.plenty of smoke and a tasty finish.good taste through the nose and a little complex as the flavors change throughout sweet/spicey/earthy. i'm on my second load and the consistency is there and i like the price of the toros.

I bought a 5-pack of these while shopping for a birthday present for someone else. They were so awesome I went back and purchased a 20 pack of robusto's. Amazing blend, just the right taste, pull, smoke and ash. I highly recommend you try one ASAP!

I have to Agree with (DS of PA) I had yet to have a PUNCH that I liked. notice I said "HAD". I will be getting a box.

I'm still new kind of new to the cigar world (I've smoke about 50 or so different gars). So far these would have to be my favorite. I've had some top shelf and some low end, and only the Rocky Patel Vintage 1992 has stacked up the enjoyment of the Uppercut

Thoroughly enjoyed these sticks, they packed a meaty taste and they are beauties. I would highly recommend these to anybody.

My wife likes to shop for deals with CI. She knows my taste, but sometimes she bombs. Believe me, I'll never complain. She bought two boxes of Uppercuts on some kind of deal. Somehow, I've got to convince her to keep buying them. They burn and draw beautifully and I thoroughly enjoy one each day with my coffee every morning. I don't know anything about nuts, leather, spice, chocolate, etc. Just a very very good cigar.

I've smoked Punch Upper Cuts before, absolutely top of Punch pyramid. Saw them on sale for under 70 bucks a box thanks to a CI email. Ordered two boxes and a box of my favorite Punch London Clubs with free shipping. Talk about a sucker Punch, hadn't planned an order until next month but couldn't pass up the deal of the year.
