Punch Short De Punch Appearance:
The Punch Short De Punch has a unique size among all Cuban cigars, the Paraisos is a newly created vitola, so despite its name, it is nothing but a short cigar, only a bit shorter than a Robusto. It feels nice between the fingers. There are no soft spots and the wrapper looks of great construction. The wrapper itself is a Corojo wrapper, of Colorado shade with a red hue to it. It feels silky smooth in hand and we can’t wait to light it up.
Punch Short De Punch Smoking Notes:
Before lighting up
The cold draw feels very good, a bit on the firm side, but it is a great start and it leaves some wood on the lips.
Once the foot is lit, the draw reveals some aromas of nuts and wood.
The Punch Short de Punch greets us with the same flavors of nuts and wood. The draw is spot-on, while the cigar smokes cool and remains smooth throughout. There is some honey and some spiciness in the background, especially in the retrohale. Despite being smooth, it has a strong body, its strength is above the medium mark. It is a great cigar to pair with a coffee or some liquor.
In the middle section, the Short de Punch remains cool and smooth, it becomes even fairly creamy and sweet. The flavor profile is similar but with now the addition of some herbal notes. It also remains fairly strong, just below medium-strong.
In the last third, the Punch Short de Punch remains very enjoyable, with still plenty of wood and nuts. The young age of the cigar shows itself as expected at this stage, with some bitterness, but it is nothing that a few months of ageing can make go away. The strength stays at the medium level until the end.
In summary, the Punch Short de Punch is a well balanced smoke, with great Cuban flavors. A good cigar to age.
