Punch Gran Puro Rancho

Ultimately, I just couldn't enjoy the Punch Gran Puro Rancho.

It's a beautiful looking 5.5x54 rock solid cigar with a fine oily sheen on a smooth dark wrapper. The thing looks edible. The draw was free and the burn was good, producing copious smoke. And it's got plenty of strength throughout to at least maintain a modicum of interest. But I kept expecting something in the way of distinctive flavor. At best it seemed to have a flat cedary tone and seemed dry tasting and woody. Reminded me of criollos, which tend to leave me cold. Its looks had me drooling. But it just, for me, didn't deliver on expectations. Granted, this was my first and it may have been a fluke. I haven't seen much talk about these here, so it makes me wonder.

Btw, I thoroughly enjoy the standard and Gran Cru Punch lines. That only added to the degree of disappointment.
