Punch London Club Maduro

Punch London Club Maduro. 5x40. Well constructed with even coloring on the dark sweated wrap. Cut was ok. A few wisps of leaf is acceptable. Lit very well with a perfect burn throughout. Medium draw. Clean ash that retains well. Flavor on the intake is rich dark tobacco, slightly peppery, not as aggressive as some Maduros. Woody. Earthy. Spicy notes on the outtake. Nice little smoke that is a notch above a cigarillo in size. A good 30 minutes to relax.

From the company:

"A go-to brand among tenured smokers since its introduction in 1969, Punch cigars are a classic. The brand lives up to its name with a bold, full-flavored taste derived from its Ecuadorian wrapper and rich blend of Honduran, Nicaraguan and Dominican tobaccos. The large-ring Magnum and uniquely-shaped Champion frontmarks have earned high praise from Cigar Aficionado and Cigar Insider, with 90 and 91 ratings, respectively. Cigar Cyclopedia concurred, and gave the collection a stellar A rating."
