"Overall, it was an okay smoke, no frills for me at least. If you like earthy notes with some pepper and char, this will be right up your alley. Little gave in way of sweetness save the grassy notes in the beginning that quickly faded halfway through. Draw issues with it being too tightly rolled made smoking it at times a chore, however all in all, eh, try it… you might like it, you might not, you be the judge…" -John A. (Bostoneo)
"All in all, this was a very good smoke at night. Definitely not a morning or early afternoon cigar. This needs to be smoked on a full stomach with something to wash the flavors down with. Other than that, if you are looking for a powerful cigar to sit back and enjoy, this could be in your ballpark. Enjoy if you can and get ready for a true pepper bomb experience towards the end." -Steve (ThaGreatWazoo)
This month, Punch Cigars will release the PACK OF PUNCH. The new six-pack will have a MSRP of $24.99 and contain 6 of the most popular blends from Punch. At participating retailers, they will be available in a counter top display featuring the Mr. Punch mascot and the brand’s signature red and blue packaging.
At the upcoming 2018 IPCPR trade show, Punch cigars will introduce a new line called Diablo. As the name suggests, it is an extremely bold and full-bodied cigar with strength and power. AJ Fernandez blended the cigar for Altadis U.S.A. with tobaccos from four different countries, all of which have aged 4-6 years. The cigars are rolled by hand at the AJ Fernandez factory in Nicaragua.
"I didn't hate the flavors of this cigar and it preformed very well technically; I just found myself becoming bored of the flavor profile. It was also a little awkward to smoke due to its very large size and boxed pressed shape." -Alan (Eulogy)

Crush and Roll West is an annual event held in Paso Robles, California. This was my fourth year attending the event and I wanted to chronicle my experiences from this year.
General Cigar has updated the look for its Punch Signature line. The redesigned packaging actually started hitting shelves already, earlier this month. The blend remains unchanged.
