Punch Churchills (cabinet)

Wrapper: Calorado Maduro (dark brown with brick red tint), thin veins, rather dense wrapper, thought I would have problems with having to relight but no problem at all. Very oily sheen and just beautiful to look at.

Construction and draw: A world class roller made this gem of a cigar. Dense and rock solid, thought I would have draw problem, but it drew like a dream.

Flavor profile: Sweet spice and woodsy, slightly bitter and harsh on the palate, deep tobacco flavors with a long finish. 2nd half intensified into the earthy range, but no bitterness, and this nice citrus fruitiness stood out. Well balanced, never tiring, just pure smoking satisfaction.

Strength: This has high level of nicotine and will make your head spin. I was buzzin half way through the cigar. Flavor strength is medium yet very rich.

Man I am so glad to find the big boy cigars up to their reputation of their former glory. A very rich and intense cigar. These will please all havanaphiles with its rich flavors and intense strength.
