Punch Rare Corojo
My lovely wife picked this cigar out for me on Friday night while we were up at the casino. I asked her why this one? She said it was the "prettiest" cigar she saw. Serious? I was thinking maybe the TTT Trinidad, but this is a Punch cigar, not a real big fan of this brand.
My wife is rarely wrong, or at least that's what she tells me. So I took my pretty Punch cigar over to the cash register and had them prep it for me. BTW, where was Josh on Friday night?
We sat up at the bar since all the other seats were taken - finding a place to sit in the Lit Lounge on a Friday night can be pretty tough, but I'll tell you what's tougher: "smoking outside in the rain!" Welcome to Washington...
Back to the Punch - I should pay closer attention when I buy these since I usually write about them, but unfortunately all I can tell you is that this was the "box-pressed" version. I'll take another look the next time I go up there. Hey, what can I say, sometimes I'm an idiot. (sometimes?)
So what did I think? I loved it! No kidding! I smoked that baby down to the nub. My wife picked a winner, that's for sure! Medium taste, maybe a little stronger than my normal smoke, but consistently smooth throughout, and volumes of rich smoke - tons of smoke. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Definitely going to pick up a few more of these!
My Rating: 8.5
I've got my humidor issue fixed - perfect RH now. Those Bóveda Humidipaks work GREAT!
Someone told me this the other day:
How can you tell when it's Springtime in Seattle?
The rain is warmer...
