Punch Gran Puro Nicaragua - Cigar Review

Punch Gran Puro Nicaragua 7 1/2 x 54 Double Corona
Some loosened seams which tighten on heating. A big vein runs most of its length. Tight-ish draw loosens after the opening third, but remains somewhat sluggish. Helter-Skelter smoke out-put. Cap/shoulder dilapidated a tick. Texture is smooth with straight-forward notes of wood beginning unkindly, then settling. Brownie, black pepper, chili powder, grains, compost. Nicely balanced sans transitioning. Goodly nuances once woods settle.

WRAPPER: Connecticut Broadleaf
BINDER: Nicaraguan
FILLER: Nicaraguan
