Punch Petit Coronations 25p A/T
If you are new to cigars then this is a great starter. More experienced smokers will find this little corona a bit two dimensional but great with a coffee on a 30 minute break. A smoke when time limited or you just want an easy smoke that is enjoyable without needing to be analysed too much.
These little coronas exhibit great amounts of smoke right from the first draw. The start is cedar and oak with a floral hint. In the middle I found more woody notes with a vague citrus flavour and a sweet bean in there that I could not pin down, dammit! Leather taste is starting to build. The last third still exhibits some mild floral notes but with a heavy leather and tobacco end. These are great value as they show some great Cuban form without any fuss.

Punch is one of the very oldest Habano brands. Don Manuel López of Juan Valle & Co founded it in the mid 19th Century with an eye to the booming British market where a humorous magazine of the same name was much in vogue.
A contented Mr Punch, the clown who personified the magazine, is still featured in every box, cigar in hand, and surrounded by 19th Century images of cigar making that remain virtually unchanged over a century and a half later.
In 1931 the Punch became associated with Hoyo de Monterrey and the two brands have been made at the same factory ever since. Today the factory is La Corona.
Punch’s distinct medium flavour created with a blend of filler and binder tobaccos from Vuelta Abajo is available in a wide variety of sizes all of which are Tripa larga, Totalmente a Mano – long filler, totally hand made.
