Punch at the top of their game.
An industry leader in innovative, high-end tobacco blending for 175 years, Punch remains one of the most recognizable brands in the biz. Once the face of the Cuban cigar market, Punch found a new home in Honduras in 1969 with the nationalization of Cuba, and they have been refining their craft ever since. Their newest release may be their proudest, tastiest work of art to date.
Dubbed Punch Signature, a combination of rare and extremely refined tobaccos are at play. At first glance, you are met with a spotless Ecuadorian Corojo wrapper leaf with an updated and eye-catching white and black-colored Punch band. Lying just beneath is a feisty, one-of-a-kind Nicaraguan binder cloaking vintage long-fillers from lush growing regions in the Dominican and Nicaragua. Rich, full-bodied notes of aromatic spice, cedar, and leather, along with a slight cinnamon nuance all enter the fray giving way to a complex blend with unwavering balance.
Punch Signature also received an impressive 91-rating noting: "Bold impressions of smoked meat, leather and mesquite are elegantly interwoven with sweet touches of dried stone fruits, caramel and a raw cocoa bean finish."
I picked one of these up in Gigante...absolutely amazing! My new favorite. Incredibly smooth and flavorful with lots of rich leathery taste. It burned great and had thick cool smoke. Will become a regular in my humidor.
Excellent cigar. One of the best cigars I have ever smoked. Punch nailed this one.
Great cigar burn, flavor, structure and price.
Try this if you like full-bodied cigars. The initial draws left behind a wasabe-like spiciness on the retrohale. Very spicy, but not harsh. It did mellow out. It's fully packed, and burned slow. There was a sweet, cinnamon aftertaste. Bonus: I got a nice little buzz, which rarely happens.
Pretty cool!! First one blew me away. Very peppery and excellent draw. Will be making another purchase of these bad boys.
I like getting 5 packs to try out new smokes. I am not disappointed. After the first inhalation, I immediately thought of the kick you get from a Joya de Nicaragua. This Punch backs one with full-body flavor, very nice draw and plenty of smoke to savor.
A really great tasting cigar. Burns evenly with a smooth taste. A very meaty cigar with a nice label. It packs a smooth punch!
Being a fan of Punch cigars and a fan of Corojo wrappers, I jumped in with both feet and ordered a box of Rothschilds. They arrived a week ago and were transferred to my Tupperador as I do with all new sticks prior to going in the humidor. This way all humidity is picked up by the cigars. Tried the first one today, beautiful oily wrapper leaf of a chestnut brown color. I used a punch cut and fired it up. It lit easily, draw was very nice, burn throughout the cigar was almost perfect, ash was light grayish brown in color. The cigar started out with a burst of spiciness which soon mellowed in to a great Corojo flavor through the rest of the cigar. I'm not one to explain all the hidden nuances, but I can tell you I thought it had a very nice profile, just enough spice, not overpowering, all in all a nice smoke. Smoke time for me was about 1 hour 10 minutes. Looking forward to seeing how well they mature over time in the humidor.
6x60: Pre light taste is sweet tobacco, loved it. Lights easy, easy draw, tastes great, plenty of smoke, light gray ash against a dark wrapper, stunning. Thought I had a real great cigar. After the first third, that's when the honeymoon was over. Wrapper unraveled, tunneled, became unsmokeable. Ended up tossing it before the half way point. It broke my heart.
