After Toast:

First Third– Smoked meats, wood and leather take the stage out of the gate followed by a real bold pepper note. A few minutes in some Salted nuts like notes show themselves along with a nice spice note. The burn is sharp, and ash fell at the 1.5-inch mark.

Second Third- Smoked wood, spice and nuts carry into this third with a coffee bean like finish combined with a lighter leather. The burn remains sharp.

Final Third – This third is straight espresso, spice and leather on the finish. A nice eucalyptus note shows itself subtlety as well here. The burn remains sharp.

Overall Experience:

This Punch Diablo is a flavor bomb with tons of great bold notes to really make you want more. This is a heavy full-bodied cigar so definitely one for the aficionados and not the beginners out there. I would recommend this cigar highly as I really enjoyed this right down to the nub.
