I've reviewed Punch cigars before, so I'm not going to belabor the point today. These cigars are consistent, well-constructed, and fall somewhere between the medium and full end of the taste spectrum. Similar to other cigars made by Villazon, including Bolivar, Hoyo de Monterrey, and Flor de A. Allones. One thing I learned with this latest 5-pack was how much a Punch cigar will improve with age. The first three I smoked were bland and had a tight draw. But after six months of aging at 67% RH, the draw was perfect and a captivating spicy flavor had emerged. Highly recommended.
