Guest Quick Smoke: Punch Gran Puro Santa Rita

14 Apr 2007

Each Saturday and Sunday we’ll post a Quick Smoke: not quite a full review, just our brief take on a single cigar. The following is a Guest Quick Smoke, submitted by a reader. If you’d like to submit your own for publication, please contact us here.

This beautiful Honduran Puro started off light as could be. I thought something was amiss – no flavor and tons of smoke. It settled into a spicy, medium-bodied treat after the first half, though. The four and ½ inch by 52 ring gauge cigar did have some uneven burning, but it self-corrected that issue without any help from my torch. In all, this is a nice way to get a larger-gauged, fuller-bodied smoke in 45 minutes. You can get these for under $3 apiece when you buy in bulk.

Verdict: Hold.
