Before lighting up
A Belicoso shape for Punch is a special moment and one which should be appreciated. The dark and oily wrappers makes these look like a box of chocolates.
The familiar Punch woodiness is already present, but this cigar will need time to reveal its true, deep natured character. The young blend is currently edgy and wild (which some smokers will love). The burn is steady and balanced, showing the enormous potential this cigar offers.
The finale is strong, almost too much.
