Review Notes: A fantastic cigar! This double corona from 1998 sports a Colorado wrapper with minimal veins and a triple cap. There is slight mottling along its length and a mild box press. Solid in the hand - good construction without soft spots. Easy light. Smooth draw. Fairly even burn without the need for relights or touchups. Dense gray ash. WOOD! The first few draws screamed this to me. The first third saw the wood meld with a smooth, creamy flavor and the taste of straight tobacco. A tangy citrus flavor also started to come to the forefront, as well as hints of mild chocolate and even a whisper of overripe plum. The middle third saw a continuation of the woody core, with the tobacco assuming a toasted character. The citrus flavor still held in the background, but occasionally flashed itself to the front. A dusting of cocoa was also noted. In the last third, the tangy citrus, wood, and cream all were represented in an equivalent medley of flavors with a touch of lemon zest. It was almost as if the proportions of flavors changed more than the flavors themselves. All in all, this 2 hour medium-to-full bodied smoke was a delight. It wears its age well (as Punch's tend to do), and was paired with Matusalem rum.
