The Punch Double Corona belongs to the very few survivors of the “Prominente” format. The origins of its production date back to the pre-revolutionary period. Its main characteristic is the underlying sweetness, a distinctive feature of the Punch brand, together with a creamy and almost chewable smoke. The flavor profile is complex with a broad evolution.
The opening is dominated by fine wood and citrus fruits, supported by a suave note of white pepper. Continuing, cocoa, hints of coffee, and toasted notes, the latter more present in the long finish.
HOW ARE THE AWARDS MADE?
Among the cigars tested during the year in blind tastings and reviews, those that scored the best score get re-selected. These products were then tested once again in a new blind tasting, which means not knowing what they are during the tasting. The test results are then compared, and the TOP 5 are made.
Since 2015, CigarsLover Magazine has focused on terroirs in order to give the right space to all the producing countries. From 2018, the TOP 5 were paired with the TOP 50, which lists the 50 best cigars without distinction of origin. Together with the Best Brands, the Best Buy, and the best Boutique Brands, this list will be published in the Winter 2020 issue of CigarsLover Magazine.
