Review Notes: OK, ok, so I exaggerate a bit. Overall though a nice smoke. Won a 5 pack of these on C-Bid for about $3 each. They looked so good I had to try one after only 2 days in the humidor. Beautiful Wrapper on this nice hefty cigar. Construction was very good, Cap popped off nicely with the guillotine cutter. Medium to slightly loose draw, with enough resistance. As other reviewers noted, slightly spice upon light up and for 1st 1/2 inch or so then settled into a nice medium bodied, slightly sweet smoke. Notes of Coffee and toasted almond. Produced gobs of smoke, very pleasant aroma, white ash that flaked a bit but not enough to annoy. I usually smoke Joya De Nicaragua Antanos and La Gloria Serie R's and generally go for full on bold cigars. The Punch Gran Puro Rancho certainly had enough flavor even for my jaded tastes. Some reviewers say the flavor is one dimensional, but it's a pretty good dimension, not of sight or sound, but of mind...a place known as...The Twilight Zone. All seriousness aside, I haven't been much of a Punch fan but I will definitely be smoking more of these.

Review Notes: I thought I would try my first Punch since they get a pretty good following. The cigar had good construction, even though the cap started to unravel once I cut it... it wasn't an issue though. The draw was great, with a slightly uneven burn. Had a nice spicy and earth/leather flavors throughout, with some creamy undertones. It did get biter tasting towards the end and I put it down about an inch from the band. If it wasn't for that, I would of gave it a pretty good rating. Overall, a good smoke, but nothing special.

Review Notes: I have smoked many of these Punch Gran Puros. Its a nice stick at about $3.60 a pop. Like other reviewers had a very minor issue with uneven burning on the one I just smoked, but others have smoked with no uneven burn. No big deal though. I had no issues with the wrapper coming undone in any of the ones I have smoked. I buy them in the 3 pack OEM boxed specials at JR Tobacco, and one of the 3 is the Gran Puro. It starts out in the first 1/2 inch as slightly spicy and then mellows to more a more earthy, woody, cedary, smooth and sweet flavor which lasts down to the last 1 1/2 inch and then gets a bit stronger in flavor. It keeps a nice full grey/white mixed ash until half way through the cigar when it fell off. Usually I smoke these down until I burn my fingers too. Overall, it's a medium mellow cigar with a nice sweet flavor without a lot of variation. Strangely enough, I have smoked some 6x48 Puros and EVERY one of them had a horrible draw and royally SUCKED. I tried to dry them to 60% in a humidor and then used center punch reamer through them to see if they were salvageable but they still smoked like crap. Stay with the 5.5x54's and you should have an enjoyable smoke. A nice cigar for a rotation in your humidor.

"Good all around"

Review Notes: This was the first grand puro I smoked, and found it be a solid stick. Like other reviewers have mentioned, I was expecting a much stronger, bolder flavor, especially since this stick has a very dark wrapper and a nice pre-light aroma of damp earth. However, after an initial burst of cedar and spice, this cigar mellowed out into a nice sweet flavor without a lot of variation. No construction problems here. Overall, a good smoke, I have several more in the humi and am looking forward to toasting them. For less than four bucks each, a good deal.

Review Notes: this was my replacement for the shitty AF 858. the wrapper was crap on this one too. it fell apart and burned way too hot and unevenly the entire time. this establishment, no matter how fine and clean it was, does not properly humidify their cigars. but they give em out for free. works for me. some fruits in this. i remember banana and mad thick smoke
