Smoking a Punch Double Coronas
This cigar looks the part in its chocolate-hued wrapper. It’s as hard as a rock in hand and the draw starts a little tight. But it soon opens out, delivering big complexity and power.
Punch cigars tend to be less spicy than other Cubans and the Double Corona is no exception. The first third starts with dark chocolate notes that veer into cherry. Heavy earth undertones feature throughout and the flavors turn darker and more robust in the final third. The smoke remains creamy without excessive harshness.
It’s an immersive smoke and the flavors vary by vintage, while always staying in the medium to full-bodied range.
