This is a discussion on Punch Gran Puro Review within the Non-Habanos Reviews forums, part of the General Cigar Discussion category; I am not a big Punch fan, but.... A great surprise!
I have not smoked a Punch cigar in about ...
Thanks for the review, I was gifted this stick and it's waiting it's turn to burn. I think the whole NC Punch brand is over looked. Have yet to have a bad stick. Great floral aroma, and straight forward Honduran tobacco taste.
Just smoked one of these last night. It sneaked up on me and knocked me on my butt. I will smoke another on only slower next time. Good flavor, excellent burn and a lot of smoke. I would giive it around a 7.
I haven't smoked a NC Punch in a while as well. Maybe it's time to revisit the brand, since I did very much enjoy some of their stuff, most notably the Gran Cru line. I can't recall ever smoking a Gran Puro....maybe it's time to give one a whirl with the high praise given...
I'm completely unbiased and 100% open minded. Nobody will ever convince me otherwise.
It seems kind of silly now, but when I was buying one of my first cigars a buddy told me Arnie smokes Punches so that seemed like a good bet to me. I haven't smoked one in quite a while, but this one caught my eye and after your positive review I am going to have to give it a try.
