Punch Gran Puro Rancho

punch-gran-puro-ranchoCigar Review – @PunchCigars Gran Puro Rancho I picked up this Honduran puro from the local @Specs1962 while restocking my wet bar following a wonderful #Christmas and #NewYear2017 holiday. Spec’s maintains serviceable humidors at most of their locations – give them a look.

This robusto featured a wrapper that wasn’t the most attractive – mottled, bumpy, some prominent veins and messy seams; but that concealed some savory and strong aromas underneath.

@CigarsInternational puts it this way: “The ancient Punch brand has now utilized everything that the San Agustin Valley of Honduras has to offer by creating a robust all-Honduran leaf cigar to tantalize your taste buds. But that’s not all; this powerful recipe features a spicy Havana-seed sun-grown wrapper, along with a sun-grown binder.”

What does all that mean? It means that lighting produces some warm, peppery spice, cinnamon, earth and wood – it’s a medium to full bodied smoke, with an earthy, spicy bouquet, carried on a wave of cream. The burn line was a bit wonky at points and required some touching up, but not much. The draw remained great from start to finish.

Overall, a good cigar. Some solid medium-full body & flavors. I rate it at 89.
