Punch - Knuckle Buster Toro
My favorite Punch cigar
Nothing flash, nothing trash, just a great every day smoke. Burn was sharp, ash held on tight, plenty of smoke, excellent draw. No outstanding flavours just an excellent smoke.
AJ Fernandez - New World Connecticut Robusto
a good stick
Perfect draw, good burn, plenty of smoke output. The tobacco not sweet, slight bitterness very pleasant.
Hoyo de Monterrey - Excalibur No. 3 English Claro
Big hit of bitterness straight at the start which faded. Heavy black oily smoke at light up. Burn was uneven, straightened itself out at the final third. Vey mild. Not for me this one.
Roma Craft - Intemperance BA XXI Vanity
Good little smoke
45 minutes of enjoyment, excellent burn, tasty little drink. No problems with this one. Flavours, I can't tell you what they were but it was nice. A little bitterness came in at the start of the 2nd third, but it wasn't unpleasant and faded. I enjoyed it.
Romeo y Julieta - 1875 Cedro Deluxe #2
Did not enjoy
Perfect construction, beautiful wrapper but tight draw distracts from all other attributes. Could be just this stick. I had other R & Js before and they were excellent but the tight draw ruins it.

Brick House - Corona Larga
A good standard smoke, appearance is good, construction good, draw slightly tighter than I prefer, not as much smoke output as other smokes, a slight bitterness which is not unpleasant, burn time about the 45 mark, Good smoke.
Blackbird - Crow Corona
Can't complain good construction, good draw, good burn, plenty of smoke output, but the flavour is not for me. Just a bit sour. Out of the Blackbirds I would go the Unkind again.

Good solid smoke. Good draw, plenty of smoke, good construction. Good tobacco all I ask for in a cigar. Yes from me.
Drew Estate - Kentucky Fire Cured Kyotos
When you removed the cello you can smell the smokiness on the stick. Not unpleasant it's like sitting around the campfire then the next day you can smell the smoke in your clothes. Draw was a bit tight which detracted from the experience. Had to do a few relight towards the end. The flavour was nice. In the first third it was the first cigar I could retro hail without burning my sinus out. Will have to try another size to get a true impression due to the draw been tight.
Padron - Natural Londres
My first Padron. Found the cheapest one I could get. Good smoke, great construction, perfect draw, plenty of smoke, soft box press, slightly bitter taste. Not for me this one.

Arturo Fuente - Curly Head
I had my first curly head. Good stick, a good smoke. This one had a tight draw though so I tried a different technique. In stead of forming a tight seal around the stick I held it with my teeth leaving a slight gap at the side of the mouth and this gave good flow.
