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.
