Pre-Light:

After Toast:

First Half –  Wood and spice are quick to the palate followed by a peppery leather finish. The wood settles in and the flavor is somewhere between an oak and cedar mixed with the spice. The leather lightens up and kind of gives off a salty finish. The burn is slightly wavy, and ash held strong.

Second Half – The wood and spice continue as well as the cedar and salty leather on the finish. This cigar has been as consistent as it gets with the flavor profile. The burn tightened up to sharp. The ash held all the way through the cigar. Beautiful construction.

Suggested Pairing:

Scotch – Johnnie Walker Platinum

Wine – Phebus Rose´

Overall Experience:

This Punch Rare Corojo had a good array of flavors in the profile with wood, spice, cedar, oak, leather and salt all coming into play at one point or another giving this good complexity for such a small smoke. I enjoyed this over a rainstorm and scotch for about an hour. The number of flavors for the price point of this cigar is a great buy in my opinion.
