The Punch Magnum’s appearance isn’t the most fancy you will find. That doesn’t mean it’s not a good looking cigar, however. The decorative band near the head stands out with its gold and red color scheme. It has a decent size and displays the Punch name and logo. The cigar has a chocolate colored wrapper with a slight sheen of oil. There are a few veins throughout the body that give the Magnum a bit of a lumpy feel. It is firm, though, and does not have any soft spots. The pre-light aroma and cold taste are both reminiscent of tobacco.

After striking the Punch Magnum with my lighter, it lights with ease. The burn only requires a couple of minor touch-ups and no re-lights. The ash is solid and gray in color. There’s a good amount of smoke being produced. I have no complaints about the draw.

Flavor-wise, the Punch Magnum isn’t bad. It kicks off with a peculiar flavor of salt. The familiar tobacco flavor detected in the cold taste also comes into play in the first third. The second third offers more tobacco flavor plus earth and some mild spice. The final third is characterized by spice once again and some leather. In terms of strength, the Magnum never went beyond medium-bodied.

When all is said and done, the Punch Magnum is a quality cigar. It’s not the best I have ever had, but it does have its strong points. If I had to pick a word to describe it, it would be consistent. I’d recommend it to punch fans or those who want something smooth with just a bit of spice. The Magnum comes in packs of five or boxes of 25. A single sells for around $4, depending on where you shop. That’s a decent price and should not sway you from at least giving the Magnum a shot.

The Punch Magnum earns a rating of 3.5 out of four stars.
