"Tastes Great, Bad Construction"

Review Notes: As with some other reviewers, I enjoyed the profile of this cigar, but it just was not worth the hassle due to an erratic burn, flakey ash, and too tight roll. The flavors of sweet spice was very good, this is quality tobacco. I'm also picking up some chocolate and cherry, this is a complex smoke. I only had one from a sampler pack of General Cigar Co.'s offerings, and I let it sit for 6 months before smoking. I don't think I will spring for a box due the const. problems, but this is a very flavorfill med-full cigar.

Review Notes: First off, I have smoked these in the past and enjoyed them. This cigar I allowed to sit for a few years. I think has allowed this cigar to really blossom. This cigar had a good burn and draw. The flavors were a solid tobacco with ample spices and wood and touches of chocolate and coffee. If you like a no-nonsense cigar and have room to let these sit, I suggest picking some up.

"Good Smoke, Bad Construction"

Review Notes: Some cigars, you love. Some cigars, you hate. Some cigars, you want to love but hate the trouble it gives you. So it goes with the Punch Gran Puro Pico Bonito. The purveyor of this stick, General Cigar, bills the Gran Puro as ”a new experience in smoking … a medium-full bodied no-nonsense cigar.” To a degree, General Cigar is right: This was a new experience in smoking, insofar is this is the first time I’ve ever experienced a premium cigar that was so inconsistently rolled that I could only enjoy about 40 percent of it before I gave up the will to try. In fairness to the manufacturer, reviews on a number of other sites suggest that my experience was unique; other smokers seem to give high marks to the Punch Gran Puro’s even burn. For that reason alone, I will go easy on this complaint. I purchased this cigar on March 11 — just two days ago — for $9.15 at Buffalo Tobacco Traders, and stored it in my humidor, which remains within appropriate humidity and temperature ranges. The Punch Gran Puro Pico Bonito is 6 in. long with a 50 ring gauge; the dark-brown wrapper made of Honduran leaf (Havana seed) is slightly oily and veiny. The cap was well-rounded and cut easily. The initial aroma was of a sweet spice — difficult to pin down a specific analog, but the impression was highly favorable. The cigar had a single, nicely designed band. The binder and filler are both Honduran. The initial light was easy but uneven; for the entire 40 minutes I spent with this cigar, the stick burned unevenly, sometimes approaching a 45-degree burn (see photo, above). The burn rate was slow; I got through 1 inch in 25 minutes. The ash was flaky and uneven, and colored a tannish grey. Resting smoke was white and copious, with a delightful aroma. My diagnosis of the uneven burn: The tobacco leaves were rolled too tightly. After a few minutes of ash, the problem became evident — the serpentine nature of the rolling left one side loosely packed and the other side so tightly packed that the burn rate was wildly out of sync. Where the leaves doubled over, the burn rate was much slower. In fact, I cut the foot at about 1.5 inches down and saw that one side of the stick had burned whereas the the other side hadn’t even started to toast. I enjoyed the consistency of the draw — this was a “three puff” cigar. The first puff brought in nothing, the second puff brought in a little smoke, and the third puff brought in a full, rich plume. Since I am a three-puff smoker, the draw character of this cigar satisfied me. I concur with General Cigar’s assessment that this was a medium-full bodied stick. I truly enjoyed the flavor, which was more complex than I expected. There was a spicy-sweet undertone that reminded me a bit of chocolate, almonds and clove. In the end, the uneven burn left me enjoying about two inches of this cigar. The unfortunate thing is that I genuinely enjoyed the flavor and the smoke characteristics; were it not for the rolling problem, this would have been a first-class cigar experience for me. Given the lack of complaints on other review sites, I will chalk this up to bad luck and would be quite willing to try another at some point.

"A battle"

Review Notes: Maybe its because I've been reading a book about armies fighting each other, but I felt this cigar was most like a battle. From the start, the burn was off, and I could never sit it straight. The draw was tight, and I drew a headache trying to gain a healthy mouth of smoke. The flavor was good, but just couldn't make up for the fight.
