Welcome back Puffers!  Our reviews for today will take a closer look at the Punch Pita EMS and the VegaFina Master 2012.  Is either worthy of a slot in your humidor?  You’ll have to keep on reading to find out.

Punch Pita EMS Toro

Up first on today’s slate of cigar reviews is the Punch Pita EMS Toro.  Now, I’m not going to lie.  The main reason I went for the Punch Pita was that it is an affordably priced cigar.  With gas prices and the price of everything else rising, it’s always good to find a nice stogie that won’t break the bank.  The Punch Pita EMS carries that distinction, and I’ve enjoyed Punch cigars in the past, so why not give it a go?  Produced by tobacco giant General Cigar, the Pita is one of the older lines from the Punch brand.  Does it pass the smoking test?  It’s time to see…

The Punch Pita EMS Toro measures in a 6 1/8 x 50.  The cigar’s strength is listed as being in the full-bodied range, and it is made primarily for experienced smokers who prefer stronger smokes.  As for its composition, The Pita has an interior made up of tobaccos from the Dominican Republic, Honduras, and Nicaragua.  Its wrapper, meanwhile, comes from the fertile South American nation of Ecuador.

As I take a look at the Pita EMS Toro, it has a rather classic appearance.  There’s nothing flashy about the cigar, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing.  The red, gold, and white band near the head features the Punch name and logo, and its colors contrast the chocolate brown wrapper nicely.  There are a few very small veins and a nice sheen of oil that stands out under direct light.  The cigar feels firm to the touch, and the construction seems to be very solid overall.  This is not much of a surprise considering the brand.  The EMS Toro has a sweet cold taste, while its aroma is reminiscent of cedar.

Once the Punch Pita is in action, the cigar burns without any major issues.  The draw is good and the gray ash is solid in nature.  A good amount of smoke is produced.  There is one re-light that is needed.  Other than that, the burn is even throughout.
